Humanities Rock! - Humans and Research

Project description

Increasing public recognition of researchers in Ljubljana

The University of Ljubljana successfully organised the 2018–2019 edition of the European Researchers’ Night. It increased insight into research and innovation activities, promoted public understanding of researchers’ achievements and impact and demystified stereotypes related to researchers’ profession. The EU-funded HUMANITIES ROCK project builds on the experience of the previous programme, aiming to increase public recognition of researchers and encourage young people to embark on scientific and research careers. The project will focus on the social, cultural, philosophical, biological and technological aspects of human life and their respective research domains and will pay special attention to the social dimensions of scientific knowledge. The activities comprise a wide range of events such as direct visits to research institutions, exhibitions, lab visits, competitions and discussions with scientists.
