How will life be in 2020?

Objective

This proposal aims to raise awareness of the prominent role researchers and how their work plays in our currently every day and for the future. Bearing in mind Horizon 2020 Societal Challenges, the ERN2013 will promote and disseminate what in terms of science and innovation is being done in Portugal.
The extensive and nationwide range of activities already planned and being prepared have one major aim: to show that researchers are ordinary people with extraordinary jobs! This will be done through direct engagement of both the general public and researchers in science awareness, across 26 main cities and villages in several venues.
Coordinated by Ciência Viva (Lisbon), there is a regional coordinator in each NUTS II region in Portugal. The role of each regional coordinator is to mobilize the research community, local companies and associations, as well as regional/local press, using the same coordination rational from 2012.
This is an inclusive proposal welcoming all interest research-related entities. The key message agreed between partners and all associated/participating entities is that we should take up this opportunity to bring research close to the people and not only expect that people come to a specific venue. Outdoor activities will be organized in partnership with municipalities/regional authorities as an added value of their service and a way to show the richness existing in each territory. In parallel, a very diverse range of edutainment indoor activities is planned and more are on the making.
