North-Eastern France Researchers Night 2007

Objective

For the third issue of the « Researchers’ night », five partners from the North and East of France decided to work together in order to offer their scientific and human richness to a large territory. Thus researchers will be in the heart of the events that will be organised during the night of the Friday 28th of September in five large French cities: Besançon, Dijon, Lille, Mulhouse and Strasbourg. The international Polar year was chosen as a main theme for the events programmed in the North-East of France. These five events will have various forms: a polar station with numerous workshops built in the core of the city, special night guided tours in museums, evening of ice sliding, dancing in a synthetic igloo, food sampling, discussion meetings between researchers and public on the image and the role of the researcher in society, meetings in unusual places like an ice rink, giant igloo or historical monuments... By involving researchers in all these events we want the general public to be confronted with a more human face of the researcher and make it realise that scientists are people like them who can share the same interests. A special attention will be put on young public. For instance, each city will participate to the European drawing contest and will organise its own regional awards during the night. The European dimension of research will be particularly underline by having researchers from various European countries – some of them having received European funds – to participate to the various events in the different cities. Last but not least, the communication tools used for all this events will be homogeneous, as a common graphic charter will be agreed on between all the partners involved. This will include one common national bookmark and website. This national communication will be reinforced by specific regional communication by the coordinator and local communication by each city.
