The call for proposals for HORIZON 2020 - Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Researchers' night 2014-2015 has been launched!
European Researcher's' night, is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie (MSCA) action, under the Horizon 2020 specific programme "Excellent science".
It consists of a pan-European event taking place on the last Friday night of September.
For the first time, proposals for the European Researchers' nights should cover two successive years (2014 and 2015). They will cover two events, respectively taking place on Friday 26 September 2014 and 25 September 2015.
Proposals covering one single year may also be considered.
The aim is to bring the researchers closer to the public at large and increase awareness of the research and innovation activities with a view to supporting the public recognition of researchers, creating an understanding of the impact of researchers' work on daily life and encourage young people to embark on scientific careers.
Activities organised will have to be focused on the general public, addressing and attracting people regardless of the level their scientific background, with a special focus on pupils and students.
Activities can combine education aspects with entertainment, especially when adressing young audience.
They can take various forms, e.g. hands-on experiments, science shows, simulations, debates, games, competitions, quizzes.
Each proposal should set up at least one European corner. Activities should be organised with researchers actively involved and directly in contact with the public.
They should promote the European dimension and gender balance in research and innovation. Involvement of researchers funded by Horizon 2020, including Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions, is encouraged.
Participants can be any legal entity in the EU Member States and Associated Countries and/or, if relevant, constitute a partnership at regional, national or international level.
Deadline: 4 March 2014 at 17:00:00 CET
