The European Researcher's Night 2014

European Researcher’s’ night, as from its first edition in 2006, is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie (MSCA) action, under the Horizon 2020 specific programme “Excellent science”; it consists of a pan-European event taking place on the last Friday night of September. For the first time, proposals for the European Researchers’ nights should cover 2 successive years, i.e.2014 and 2015. In other words, they will cover two events, respectively taking place on Friday 26 September 2014 and 25 September 2015. Proposals covering one single year may also be considered. Its objective, as described in the Work Programme for 2014-2015, consists of: “Bringing the researchers closer to the general public and increasing awareness of the research and innovation activities with a view to supporting the public recognition of researchers, creating an understanding of the impact of researchers’ work on daily life and encouraging young people to embark on scientific careers”.
