€8 million available to fund science outreach events across Europe

A call for project proposals to organise European Researchers´ Night events is open until 9 January 2020.

It is the occasion to get funds to organise a Europe-wide public and media event for the promotion of research careers, in particular towards young people and their families.

This is an opportunity to bring researchers closer to the general public and to increase awareness of research and innovation activities by:

  • Supporting the public recognition of researchers
  • Showcasing the impact of researchers’ work on people’s daily lives
  • Encouraging young people to embark on research careers.

Universities, Research Centres, Civil society organisations, and other legal entities across Europe and Associated Countries are invited to submit proposals to organise events.

The call makes available around €8 million that could fund more than 60 projects.

Evaluation results will be known by 15 April 2020 at the latest. Successful proposals will be then invited to prepare a grant agreement, which should be signed by June 2020. The events will take place on 25th September 2020.
