This 3.5-year project focuses on the popular and political support of the European Research Council (ERC) across Europe by raising the profile of its scientific achievements.


A total of 7 consortium members and 9 ECSITE members (www.ecsite.eu) will bring excitement and curiosity to the general public in the form of a set of attractive and interesting research-based activities and events. During the project, 6 selected scientific topics will be selected, the content of which will be communicated to the public through various debates, games, experiments, demonstrations, and public events in order to raise public interest and curiosity in science and engage them in discussions on controversial scientific issues.


The activities will be accompanied by a campaign promoting state-of-the-art research projects and results funded by the European Research Council, to stimulate people's imagination and curiosity in the field of current research.
