Building bridges through research: Тhe right way to the European Union

Objective

"FYR Macedonia is experiencing constrains in relation to science, technology and innovation, similar to those of the other South Eastern European countries. This in turn prevents developing a strong research community and environment. Thus, this project aims to enhance public recognition of researchers and scientists, celebrate the fruits of their work, stimulate interest in research among wide non-academic audience including youth and encourage consideration of research and basic science as a profession. The specific objectives of the project are:
• To depict the researchers as ordinary people who perform extraordinary jobs that fuel our society ahead;
• To bring the profile of the researcher and the scientist in the Macedonian society closer tothe “ordinary” Macedonian people, through general awareness campaign and by involvement of important R&D stakeholders in the Researchers’ night activities;
• To present the wider public the role of science and research in the societal and economic development of the country;
• To explain science concepts to children and youth in activities which will provide fun, competition, creativity and education;
• To enhance youth’s understanding of science and research and prop up thinking of how they can contribute to the societal development in future, through a series of scientific activities, including showcases of scientists and their work and how have these impacted the societal development;
• To involve the academic community in a series of specific activities, including conducting, funding and publishing research.
In achieving those objectives, the project will target wide audience and involve a variety of stakeholders within Macedonian society."
