Researchers’ Night in 2012, organized in Banja Luka, was the first one in Bosnia and Herzegovina, along with other 284 cities that participated in this traditional EU-wide initiative to promote ordinary people with extraordinary jobs under slogan "Science is Magic". Around 6.000 people attended edutainment activities.



The second BiH Researchers' Night in 2013 expanded to Banja Luka and Sarajevo, involving 12.000 people in the biggest EU-wide research promotion event. The main idea of RiNG.BA.13 is based on connection (RiNG) between otherwise separated units of BiH (.BA), uniting organizations from essentially different sectors with the one aim – to build a bridge between researchers and “normal” people in 2013 (.13) with references to horror elements (RING, 13) under slogan "Science is (not) a Horror".
