    The HUMAN_ERA Night proposal aims at organising two events, one in 2018 in Limassol, and one in 2019 in Nicosia. Both events will be dedicated to the Human Era, a concept inspired from the fact that never before has the Earth been so affected by one species as is now by humans. Employing an anthropocentric approach, the HUMAN_ERA Night over the next two years aims to celebrate our Cultural Heritage (2018, on the occasion of the European Year of Cultural Heritage) and Life Sciences (2019) as two different mirrors reflecting the same image, human evolution. The Coordinator, the Research Promotion Foundation (RPF), as the National Agency for supporting Research and Innovation (R&I), has within its remit gained a long experience in organising activities for the promotion of R&I towards the public and especially the younger generation, with the European Researchers’ Night events being an integral part of its philosophy since 2006, and always with the vivid support from the National R&I System. The proposed events will be the result of a long-lasting and well established collaboration (12 years of organising European Researchers’ Night in Cyprus) of the RPF with all relevant R&I stakeholders (government, industry, academia) and civil participants ensuring maximum complementarity and open innovation at the same time. Building on past experiences, HUMAN_ERA Night will bring together researchers from all sectors and disciplines, along with the public, increasing appreciation of the researchers’ work, raising awareness on the importance of R&I for society and the economy and motivating young people to take up a career in research. Through a balanced mix of educational and entertaining, interactive activities, aiming at people of all ages, genders and educational backgrounds, the events will celebrate R&I achievements, especially EU funded and will ultimately remove stereotypes about the researchers’ profession, creating a much needed R&I culture among the Cypriot population.

    The Night Deal proposal aims at organising a European Researchers' Night (ERN) event in Nicosia. The proposal's overall objective is to reach out to the wider public and raise awareness about the research and innovation (R&I) activities undertaken at national and EU level while boosting knowledge about the benefits of science to society in order to stimulate the interest in research careers, especially among young people and their families. The Night Deal aims also at promotimg the agenda of the European Green Deal initiative for a greener and smarter world, for a more sustainable future through R&I. The Coordinator, the Research and Innovation Foundation (RIF), as the National Agency for supporting R&I, has within its remit gained a long experience in organising activities for the promotion of R&I towards the public and especially the younger generation, with the ERN events being an integral part of its philosophy since 2006, and always with the vivid support from the National R&I System. The proposed event will be the result of a long-lasting and well established collaboration of the RIF with all relevant R&I stakeholders (government, industry, academia) and participants from the public ensuring maximum complementarity. Building on past experiences, The Night Deal will bring together researchers from all sectors and disciplines, along with the public, increasing appreciation of the researchers’ work, raising awareness on the importance of R&I for society and the economy and motivating young people to take up a career in research. With the motto 'science for all' as a flagship and through pre-events, side and main event consisting of a balanced mix of edutainment and inreactive activities aiming at people of all ages, genders and educational backgrounds, The Night Deal will celebrate R&I achievements, especially EU funded and will ultimately remove stereotypes about the researchers’ profession, creating a much needed R&I culture among the Cypriot society.

    The ENGAGE proposal aims at organising a European Researchers' Night (ERN) in Nicosia, Cyprus on the 24th of September 2021. The theme of the event, the green and digital age, focusses on the transition towards a green world led by the European Union (EU) through the European Green Deal, in a new decade where the digital transition is well under way and more prominent than ever before as addressed in the European Digital Strategy. Having coordinated the organisation of the ERN events in Cyprus since 2006, the Research and Innovation Foundation (RIF), will seek to build on the experience accumulated over the years and established collaboration with local Research and Innovation (R&I) stakeholders from the academia, the public sector, industry as well as other actors in civil society to make the event a success. The proposal's main objective is to mobilise and actively engage researchers in a quest to increase awareness of research and innovation activities by bringing them closer to the wider public. ENGAGE will additionally seek to raise the public's awareness regarding the latest R&I achievements in Cyprus and the EU, creating an understanding of the benefits and impact of researchers' work on citizens' daily life, whilst at the same time reducing stereotypes about researchers and encouraging young people to embark on research careers. The target audience for the event is the public at large, attracting people regardless of their age, gender or scientific background, with a special focus on families, pupils and students. Activities will bring together the public and researchers from all sectors and disciplines, and include side events such as a European Corner Roadshow in the main cities of Cyprus and a main event with hands-on experiments and demonstrations, games, live science communication competitions and quizzes as well as screenings of science documentaries, a Stand-up Science Comedy Live Show and a digital concert to conclude festivities.
