  • researchers and scientists share their knowledge with school children, students and the wider public and engage in dialogue with them;
  • teachers, private individuals as well as non-profit organisations and foundations to lead interactive projects for school children, students and the wider public, giving them an overview of science and research and/or scientists’ research methods.
