"The main objective of our proposal is contributing to the reinforcement of public recognition of researchers, their important role in society and to present how European Union takes care for them. The common topic of all events in our proposal is Researcher as profession and European Union’s care for them. The proposed events are organized on 28 September 2007: from artistic ones, researchers’ rock band, experiments, to attractive discussion at round table about researcher as profession and women’s position as researcher and their social role all with festive character. They all aim at offering the public at large an opportunity to directly meet researchers in a relaxed atmosphere. Researchers, representatives from Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology, will present Marie Curie Action, role of National Contact Person, The European Charter for Researchers, The Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers, ERA MORE. Interesting experiments, workshops in which visitors will participate will be performed. Information how young people can become researchers themselves and fun corner for the smallest children, will be available as well. In order to illustrate the fact that researchers are ""normal people"", whose unique specificity is their curiosity and passion for research, which they are willing to share with any European citizen, we also give importance to women’s role in society in connection with research and science and to researcher as profession. On this topic a round table will be organized at which the position of women researcher will be enlightened. The target audience of proposed events, foreseen in an informal and attractive way is the public at large, including all different groups of population from youngest one to elder citizens of respective age, and activities suitable for each of these groups. Drawing competition “Let’s draw a researcher” will enrich location of the event with the exhibition of competitions’ pictures."
