The project covers two editions of the European Researchers’ Night (ERN) in Małopolska in 2018 and 2019, respectively for the 12th and 13th time in our region. The event will be held in 7 cities of the Małopolska Region (Kraków, Tarnów, Nowy Sącz, Niepołomice, Skawina, Andrychów, and Chrzanów) to show the wide scientific heritage, with access not being a barrier to the participation of the residents of various parts of the region. Researchers from participating institutions prepared approx. 1,000 different activities, a total of approx. 2,000 within the entire 2-year project. The preparation of such a diverse programme will involve approx. 4,000 people every year, both experienced researchers and beginners (students, representatives of scientific circles), as well as R&D employees from companies located within the region. In addition, due to the fact that 2018 is the European Year of Cultural Heritage, we have prepared even more attractions and surprises for this year's edition – there will also be the possibility to meet researchers in ... museums, libraries, and even in a historical church which the participants will certainly not be expecting. The next two editions of the ERN in Małopolska focus on showing researchers as ordinary people with extraordinary job that affect our daily lives and how in practice researchers change the world. An important distinction of the ERN among other events is that we focus 100% on interactivity. During the RN, the researchers present their work combining learning with entertainment (edutainment), to make children and young people as passionate about science as possible. But the participants themselves will feel like real researchers performing unusual experiments under the watchful eye of their mentors. The project has European dimension – due to its broad and diversified awareness campaign, we estimate that 4 million people will be made aware of the project and its objectives. Duration of the project: 1.04.2018-30.11.2019.
