Leiden European City of Science 2022

Leiden will be the European City of Science in 2022: for one year, Leiden will be the European capital of science. Leiden2022 presents a year-long program for everyone with an open and curious mind, brimming with science, knowledge, art and skills. And at all levels: local, national and international.
