research explosion (RE)
Start date: 01 Jun 2008, End date: 31 Dec 2008 PROJECT  FINISHED 

"Main objective of our proposal is contributing to the reinforcement of public recognition of researcher as profession with it's international dimension. The proposed events are organized on 26 September 2008: from artistic ones, researchers’ rock band, experiments, to interesting discussions on television program about researcher as profession and women’s position as researcher and their social role, all with festive character. The target audience of proposed events, foreseen in an informal and attractive way, in which whole families can take part in, is the public at large, including all different groups of population from youngest one to elder citizens. They all aim at offering the public at large an opportunity to directly meet researchers in a relaxed atmosphere, with »European corner« and exhibition of photos competition »Portrait of (a) researcher(s)« in the heart of the event's location. As a part of the »European corner« there will be a transmition of events organised in the frame of the European Researchers' night 2008 and available on internet connection. Interesting experiments, workshops in which visitors will participate will be performed. Information how young people can become researchers themselves and fun corner for the smallest children, will be available as well. In order to illustrate the fact that researchers are ""normal people"", whose unique specificity is their curiosity and passion for research, which they are willing to share with any European citizen, we also give importance to women’s role in society in connection with research and science and to researcher as profession. This topic will be discussed in public media."
