The COOLandHOT Project connects and unites the faces, voices, results and energy of many generations of researchers, presenting and indeed showcasing them to the public, regardless of age and scientific education. It is a unique opportunity for all visitors to get up close and personal with researchers. Particular emphasis in this project is placed on inspiring and motivating the next generation of researchers. Since young people are attracted to what is “HOT” and what is “COOL”, the focus of the project is on specific sciences and researchers.
The CPN runs the work package 1, under which preparatory and promotional activities are carried out. Most of the promotional activities relate to the organization of visits of the Science Truck to cities in Vojvodina, as traveling laboratory, classroom and space for workshops and panels. The main role is to promote the project and its goals among as many people as possible, and to attract future participants through dedicated programmes. Key activities are primarily intended for children and young people who are yet to choose their careers – possibly in science!
