No Researchers ? No Party ! expresses in its title the concept of the proposal: offer, on the 25th of September, to the public at large a unique event to better know researchers and their role, to interact and to party with them. The Re-party project is conceived as a catalyst of resources, ideas, energies and expertise as it’s structured on 3 key pillars: continuity, creativity, communicability (3C). These three key words characterize the findings of the 2008 impact assessment activities and summarize perfectly the areas where partners will focus their efforts. The consortium, with the support of a large number of local and regional stakeholders, will set up a festive programme to be performed in the 7 venues of the 2 involved regions: Piemonte and Aosta valley. The Re-Party project is thus impacting on the North West of Italy. More than 200 researchers have been mobilized in the 2 regions to brainstorm and to propose activities for the Night: Re-Party project will organize a mix of multidisciplinary experiments, games, entertainments, debates with music, sounds and light. Citizen will find activities in the streets and in open venues as well as and in labs, theatres, cafés, museums. Novelties for the 2009 Night are: a reinforced participation of SMEs, the contribution of Ispra JRC for the EU corner, a massive use of the social network’s tools to reach the identified target audience (younger generations and students), the willing to assess the national impact and to open to EU partner regions and generally to go beyond the regional boundaries. Re-Party wants to plan an evening where all the involved parties, namely public and researchers, get together and discover each other under a different light!
