The main objective of ReN2007 project is to promote public recognition of researchers and their profession and bring them closer to the Greek society. The project also aims to stimulate young people to embark on scientific careers and to enhance the attractiveness of Europe as host territory for researchers. The target group for this activity is large public in Greece. Nevertheless, different subcategories like kids, teenagers, young people, adults, teachers, parents, “ordinary people”, researchers, entrepreneurs, politicians are to be reached as parts of the general public. To achieve the afore mentioned objectives the following activities will be carried out: 1. Three big events with a festive character will be organized at the night of 28 September 2007 in 3 Greek cities. 2. Upgrade the existing ReN2006 portal for the needs of ReN2007. 3.
