Researchers and citizens: facing together the European challenges

Descripción del proyecto

Promover la pasión por la investigación en Madrid

La Noche Europea de los Investigadores (ERN, por sus siglas en inglés) se celebra anualmente en varias ciudades de Europa con el objetivo de mostrar la repercusión de la ciencia y la investigación de forma divertida e inspiradora. En el proyecto MADRIDNIGHT, financiado por las Acciones Marie Skłodowska-Curie, se organizarán los eventos de la ERN 2022-2023 en Madrid, que tendrán lugar el último viernes y sábado de septiembre. Los actos se dirigen a ciudadanos de todas las edades y procedencias, y se prestará una atención especial a animar a los estudiantes a contemplar las carreras científicas. Entre las actividades que se llevarán a cabo a lo largo del año figuran visitas de investigadores a centros escolares y visitas de alumnos y maestros a los lugares de trabajo de los investigadores. El objetivo es transmitir el mensaje de que la ciencia y la investigación son actividades apasionantes y accesibles para todos.

Objetivo

The European Researchers' Night in Madrid will bring together researchers to the general public and will increase awareness of the importance and benefits of research and innovation, creating an understanding of the impact of researchers' work on citizen's daily life, and raising young people’s interest in science and research careers.
The project will achieve these objectives by means of festive activities to be carried out in the Region of Madrid in the morning and evening of the last Friday and Saturday of September 2022-2023. Pre events and post events will be also organized. The Madrid Night project also includes Researchers at Schools activities throughout the year. In these activities, researchers will be visiting schools, allowing teachers and pupils to engage with them on important topics faced by our societies, such as those included in the missions in Horizon Europe: cancer, adaptation to climate change, healthy oceans, seas coastal and inland waters, climate-neutral and smart cities and soil health and food. Students and teachers will also visit the researchers’ workplaces.
The MADRIDNIGHT activities will be addressed to public at large, science-addicts and science-reluctant, children, families, teachers, elderly, people regardless their scientific background with a special focus on families, pupils, and students, with the main purpose of encouraging STEM subjects and science careers, university students and also vocational education and training students. Different activities will be offered focused on the missions in Horizon Europe. The project will involve researchers, benefited by EU funds, especially the MSCA. The activities will point out the transnational and diversity aspects of research, showing the attractiveness of their jobs that can be done everywhere in Europe.
Universities, research centres, museums, hospitals, NGOs, foundations and Industry (Spin offs, SME or Large Companies) in the Region of Madrid will be at the core of the project.
