Many cities claim to be cities of knowledge, Leiden truly is one. For many centuries, the concentration of talent and knowledge has made the city an international meeting place where talent and knowledge lead to innovation.

With this background, the city partners in Leiden have joined forces to secure the title of European City of Science. For a city like Leiden, it is the logical 'next step' in the international playing field.

In 2022, all eyes will be on Leiden. This year, the city will be the national standard bearer with international allure. During the year-round public events programme, we will show that science, knowledge, art and skills all come together in the city. The year is really about connecting and bringing together science and the public. Everyone is welcome and everyone can participate.
