ERC=Science² is a pan-European communications campaign using popular scientific themes to highlight the scientific research funded by the European Research Council (ERC) and the potential impact it can have on society. The campaign aims to highlight the importance of the ERC-funded research.
To help spread the message among a wider audience, ERC=Science² offers a platform to promote ERC projects and grantees through a cluster of high quality communication and outreach events on campuses across Europe. Within this context a call for interest has been launched addressed to universities and research institutes that wish to host campus events.
Universities and research institutes will have the opportunity to choose from a selection of events, deciding on the format that best suits their research area, the researchers they wish to involve and the audience they want to target and engage with. The ERC=Science² team provides administrative and logistical support, and it can also provide science communication training to ERC grantees in order to help them communicate their research.
