Posted By:
Commission Européenne 18 January 2002

The European Commission, Research Directorate General has just launched a call
for proposals for Raising Public Awareness of Science and Technology. The
deadline for proposals is 15 April 2002.

The main objectives of Raising Public Awareness include helping European
citizens to understand more about the impact of scientific advances on their
day to day lives, and increasing scientists` awareness of issues of concern to
the public.

This call will be of interest to science communicators, public understanding
science experts and organisations involved in the promotion of scientific
information; museums, science centres, research organisations, etc.
Applications must focus on one of more of the following areas:

* Dialogue with the public
* The role of the media and science communicators
* European Science and Technology Week

Proposals selected for European Science Week will form the 2003 European
Week, which usually takes place in early November.

analog computing, cultural relativism, GAC, Cyc, Eliza, cryonics, individual

We move into a better future in proportion as the scientific method
accurately identifies incorrect thinking.
