Objective

Noč ima svojo moč [The Night has it might] (NOCMOC) [NIGHTMIGHT] project combines a strong awareness campaign embedding a major media campaign and a citizen science project with activities spread all over Slovenia in the two Researchers nights in 2018 and 2019.

The core objectives of the NOCMOC project is to raise awareness about the research and its benefits, overcome stereotypes, stimulate curiosity all over Slovenia and excite youngsters to take up the research careers.

The awareness campaign will comprise national TV broadcasts, radio broadcasts, press presence and a social media campaign, reaching 100.000 people. Moreover, as a citizen science project, over 500 seeds will be sown all over Slovenia by citizens and will be the basis for collaboratiovecollaborative research: comparing growth, plants characteristics and the physical and chemical properties of Slovenian autochthonous species. We expect seeds to grow throughout the citizens science project in the awareness campaign and to bloom on the Researchers’ night.

The NIGHT activities will take place in 17 cities across Slovenia and will bring together 27 research-related institutions to raise awareness about research and innovation, its social and economic benefits as well as its variety of careers. Over 40.000 visitors from different target groups will take part in the NIGHT activities spread all over Slovenia. Activities will combine science festivals on the main square of four cities, research days in 6 primary and secondary schools, over 30 lectures and workshops in public spaces such as libraries, retirement homes and museums, open doors at the research institutions, science centre and cultural institutions.
