The European Researchers’ Night Invites Organisations to Apply for Cultural Projects

How to show that science can be  a great fun as well? If you have an idea, an invitation of the the European Researchers’ Night  can make it realistic. The European Parliament and the Council designated 2018 as the ‘European Year of Cultural Heritage’. As a consequence, applicants are encouraged to include activities relating to cultural heritage, where appropriate, in their events.

The European Researchers’ Night aims to bring researchers closer to the general public and to increase awareness of research and innovation activities, with a view to supporting the public recognition of researchers, creating an understanding of the impact of researchers’ work on citizen’s daily life, and encouraging young people to embark on research careers.

Participants can be any legal entity in the EU Member States and Horizon 2020 Associated Countries, and/or if relevant, constitute a partnership at regional, national or international level. The maximum duration of support will be two years from the starting date specified in the grant agreement. Proposals should cover two editions of the NIGHT in successive years, but single editions will also be considered.

Deadline: 14 February 2018, 17:00 (Brussels time).
