The European Researchers’ Night is held in nearly 300 European cities. This unique meeting between scientists and the general public will be held on September 26th in Ljubljana, Novo mesto, Izola and Planica. It is organized by Jožef Stefan Institute.

Started by the European Commission in 2005, the European Researchers’ Night is a unique opportunity for scientists to talk about their jobs. During the evening, the general public participates alongside researchers to better understand their world and the specificities of scientific culture.

The objective of all events corresponded to the WeForYou project main goal is “to enhance public recognition of researchers and their work, notably through offering the public at large, regardless of age and scientific background, opportunities to discover their human face and share with them experiments, ideas, problems, concerns, hopes, passions and fun”, as well as the following project objectives:

  • Bringing researchers and public at large closer to one another, pointing out the “ordinary character” of the researchers and in such a way facilitating their integration in the social fabric;
  • Stressing the societal importance of research, not only for competitiveness and economic growth but also towards citizens’ daily lives and well-being;

Laboratory for Open Systems and Networks  obtained five new research projects from the 7th EU Framework Programme and the ISEC (Prevention of and fight against crime) programme in 2013. Two of them received the highest evaluation scores among more than 100 project proposals: EmployID in technology enhanced learning and COURAGE in security.

Goals of the COURAGE, REDIRNET and DFET projects are to deliver a measured, comprehensive, relevant research agenda for cyber crime and cyber terrorism, create an emergency responder data interoperability network, and create new cloud-based training methods/techniques to support judicial authorities, law enforcement agencies and associated stakeholders in the fight against cybercrime.

EmployID will support and facilitate the learning process of Public Employment Services (PES) practitioners in their professional identity transformation process, while  in the RENATECH project we have already organised very successful researchers’ night.

COURAGE, REDIRNET, EmployID and DFET will start their activities at the beginning of 2014.
