IRIS Portal

Είναι το μεγαλύτερο εργαλείο του Ιδρύματος από τη στιγμή που εκεί υποβάλλονται και αξιολογούνται οι αιτήσεις προς χρηματοδότηση από το οικοσύστημα Έρευνας και Καινοτομίας.

Κατά συνέπεια θέλουμε να έχει πιο εμφανή θέση εντός της αρχικής σελίδας. Ίσως με την εισαγωγή ενός πιο ευδιάκριτου banner.

Σε κάθε περίπτωση θα πρέπει να είναι έντονη η παρουσία του IRIS portal.

European Researchers’ Night

The European Researchers ’Night event aims to encourage the public to become familiar with the world of science and research and at the same time to strengthen the public image of researchers, whilst highlighting the important role they play in society.

Through a festive atmosphere, the event brings together the general public, regardless of age, gender, educational or social level with the research teams, as an opportunity to find out more their work and get to know aspects of their personality beyond their scientific activity. At the same time, through activities that focus on nurturing a culture of research and innovation, the event aims to encourage young people to pursue professional careers in research and in the wider field of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics).

More than 1,500,000 visitors take part each year in this science and research festival, which takes place every last Friday in September in more than 350 cities across Europe.

The activities presented are interactive and encourage the active participation of the public. Visitors of all ages can take part in experiments, use the latest technology for performing simulations, chat with researchers, test their knowledge through competitions and have fun with music, theater and other events included in the programme.

The annual event is an initiative of the European Commission and is funded through the Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions (MSCA) of the EU’s Framework-Programme for Research and Innovation. The main objective of the event is to nurture a research and innovation culture and raise awareness with regards to the research activity implemented by universities, research centres and innovative companies in our country.
