Objective

The main objective which is in absolute accordance with the EU HRM policy, is to render Research and Culture accessible to the public through exhibitions and events, which will be organised on the night of 28th September 2007 with audiovisual and multimedia effects, at venues where research is conducted or play an integral part in the cultural life of the city. The public, adults and students will have the unprecedented opportunity to visit venues normally inaccessible, will interact with researchers in person and will be inspired by the excitement of research and the enchanting quest for discoveries in every field. At the NHRF in Athens, a unique exhibition on arts, crafts and professions of the Middle Ages will enable the public to see them through the eyes of the researcher. In the Byzantine Museum, situated nearby an exhibition of medieval manuscripts along with an educational programme will maximize the effects of the event by offering a view and feel of actual tools of the time and the artefacts created by them. The National Observatory of Athens, will hold an unprecedented night event on the History of Astronomy. The Museum of Byzantine Culture in Thessaloniki, awarded the Best European Museum in 2005 by the EC, will offer the public the opportunity to access its laboratories. The 8th Bureau of Byzantine Antiquities in Ioannina, will organise a guided tour of the impressive Castle and the Museum in it. The programme will last 6 months. The exhibitions and events will be designed and organised in the first 3 months, the implementation in the 4th, the evaluation in the 5th and dissemination of the experience gained from the project in the 6th month. Through the project we will achieve to draw the public to research and cultural venues, provide detailed information on Arts, Crafts and Professions of the Middle Ages, introduce the wider public to the significant work done in Museums, raise public awareness of research on our historical past.
