Objective

The Researchers´ Night in Madrid 2010 is a project to be held in different locations in the Region of Madrid in the framework of the European Researchers´ Night, which involves the main Universities and Research Centres in the Region. It aims at bringing researchers closer to the public and at enhancing the public recognition of scientists, by presenting to the public relevant aspects of their work, the benefits it brings to society and its presence in our daily lives. This will be done in the framework of recreational activities where actors are both the researchers and the citizens.

In line with these general aims, the project will focus on the following specific objectives:
- Communicating the researchers´ work to the general public.
- Highlighting the benefits of the researchers´ work for society.
- Putting in direct contact researchers and the public and fostering the interaction between them.
- Involving young people in the activities and showing them the attractiveness of research careers.
- Involving the general public in the activities.

The project is based in four key concepts:
- Multidisciplinarity: activities will deal with different scientific and technological areas.
- Unity: given by the common objectives and the common messages to deliver.
- Participation: reflected in the focus of the activities and in the management structure.
- European dimension: present in the awareness campaign, in the content of the activities during the Night and in the dissemination.

The project will contribute to confronting existing stereotypes about researchers, attracting young people to science careers and having a better public understanding of the role of researchers in society, which are its main areas of impact
