To reach out to society as a whole and to demonstrate how EU funding contributes to tackling societal challenges the EuroNeurotrophin ESRs contribute to a number of public engagement and communication events.
ESR Presentations as Marie-Curie Ambassadors
To be able to inform young students about the possibility of a researcher career and to present the Marie-Sklodowska-Curie Actions, ESRs hold presentations to present their individual work targeting the general public and students.
Local Public Engagement Events
Over the full project duration our ESRs present EuroNeurotrophin at our partners’ local public engagement events including lectures for the general public, educational lectures and visits to the premises of our partners.
The aim of contributing to these established events is to raise public awareness, create more understanding for the prevalence of NDs and science in general to increase the project’s outreach and engagement with the general public.
All EuroNeurotrophin ESRs were involved in the updating of Wikipedia pages related to the project and research fields associated to Neurotrophins to ensure outcomes from the project are documented on Wikipedia and accessible to a large audience interested in the field of Neurotrophins. In groups, the ESRs identified and reviewed relevant pages which require updates and added new content to include information and outcomes resulting from the EuroNeurotrohin project. Additionally, one group of ESRs focused on the development of a new Wikipedia page dedicated to Neurotrophin mimetics as this was not available. Below you can find the list of articles updated by our ESRs.
