WONDERS, Welcome to Observations, News and Demonstrations of European Research and Science

Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY

Abstract

There are about hundred science festivals all over Europe, from Waterford in Ireland to Moscow, from Tromso in the North of Norway to Tavira in Portugal. Many of these festivals have joined together for a first time ever "European Science Festival", named WONDERS, an acronym for "Welcome to Observations, News and Demonstrations of European Research and Science". The main motto of WONDERS is "LOOK CLOSER". This underlines the scientific method: not just watch the surface, the first impression, but go deeper, think more about it, all in all: LOOK CLOSER! WONDERS was designed to inspire European science communicators to work together and to continue this activity in future years.
