Open Researchers 2020

Objective

Open Researchers 2020 is the 9th Andalusian experience in the European Researchers’ Night designed to increase the awareness and perception of research as a solution to the huge challenges facing society. ‘A science open to citizenship: Facing the challenge of creating a sustainable future for all’ is the main idea of the project, which has been conceived in a time where becomes clearer that we must join efforts to find sustainable, equal, innovative and creative solutions to achieve Sustainable Development Goals and the societal challenges that we are facing in Europe. Understanding that science is present in our daily lives through many disciplines involved, it should be accompanied by a scientific culture that will prepare future citizens to a reality full of challenges. It is essential to promote youth interest in Science by opening it to the general public through researchers in an accessible way in order to implement public engagement in RRI. Fundación Descubre will coordinate this project, based on its experience through the last decade working with relevant projects and fundamentally in its consortium experience in the previous NIGHT projects. The consortium is composed of nine Andalusian universities, the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), Andalusian Foundation Progress and Health, and the Royal Botanical Garden of Córdoba. The project's major strength is the numerous educational and entertainment activities taking place on main streets and squares, theatres, and historical buildings of the eight Andalusian cities, with a high mobilization of researchers. The European dimension will be underlined by the active involvement of researchers with European funds and Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellows, in the EU Corners and in the pre-events organized before the Night. Gender equality will be guaranteed in activities, researchers and organization members. The project includes an European collaboration to design a set of activities linked to the Agenda 2030.
