Call for proposals - Researcher's night 2010 FP7-PEOPLE-2010-NIGHT Closed!


This Call for Proposals in referred to the 2009 work programme “People” of the 7th Framework Programme of the European Community for Research, Technological Development and Demonstration Activities (2007 to 2013). This action aims to bring the researchers closer to the public at large, so enhancing their role in the mainstream of society. The increasing success and impact of this annual event since 2005 both in terms of number of people reached and the benefits to the Marie Curie programme justifies its annual frequency.

The format of the call for proposals, which was applied for the first time in 2006, allows for a greater cohesion between the various actions supported, their scale, the target audience and the messages delivered.

The expected impact of this action consists of continuing to tackle the existing stereotypes about researchers and the profession, and to have the public at large better understand the central role of scientists and the key benefits they bring to society. The action should demonstrably reinforce the trend for increasing public participation in the Researchers' Night.

An additional impact should be to convince young people that scientific careers are fascinating and to stimulate them to embark on scientific careers with mobility.
