Marie Curie Open Day

 In connection with each Yearly Meeting, a Marie Curie Open Day will be organized. Specific actions will be taken to attract private companies to participate. A small exposition of prototypes and technologies with the latest scientific and technological results will be prepared for public and business interests. Also, the Marie Sklodowska Curie programme and Horizon2020 will be introduced. Specific actions to measure the increase of the workshop participants’ awareness will be taken: questionnaires and quiz with small rewards.

  • During the Training School on Dielectric Elastomer Transducers in Neuchâtel (8-10.09.2015), a full-day outreach session for local high school students (about 55) was organized (in Neuchâtel and then in Geneva), to explain what “artificial muscles” are, and what a research career is like.
  • During the Training School on Modelling and Ionic EAPs in Tartu (26-29.01.2016), an half-day outreach session in a local gymnasium was organized (32 participants), to demonstrate the “artificial muscles” in action. Besides the seminar, a small hands-on session for soft robotics was organized.
  • Marie Skłodowska-Curie Open Day was organized in Tallinn (12-13.03.2016) in connection to the First Lego League national championships. ESRs and PhD students gave an open lecture and a set of hands-on sessions for 161 school pupils.
