On Fridays 30.9.’16 and 29.9.’17 SciFe events will be organized with renewed programs in festive and fun atmosphere in Ljutomer, Maribor, Brežice, Ljubljana, Koper, Izola and Nova Gorica. All SciFe events’ activities aim at offering the public at large an opportunity to cooperate in fascinating experiments, demonstrations, observations etc., to socialize and have fun with researchers in a relaxed atmosphere. The program is appropriate for public in general, regardless their scientific program and especially designed for youngest. SciFe programs’ red line is contribution of science to life in various aspects. The »European corner« will be prepared in the heart of every RN location: the visitors will be offered information on EC’s various actions and programs, EU material, “the Charter and the Code”, information how young people can become researchers and Framework Program witness’s experiences. Intensive awareness campaign is designed according to its main target. The rich communication mix includes active engagement of the young people through the public call targeting primary and secondary schools.
