Call for Proposal – Marie Curie Actions – Researchers' Night 2011 FP7-PEOPLE-2011-NIGHT Closed!


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.
