Abstract:Since 2006 a small group of researchers from the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics started to realised one of the first European Researchers’ Night in Europe: a one night-event, supported by the European Commission, that falls every last Friday of September to promote the re-searcher’s figure and its work. Today, after thirteen editions, the project has evolved by involving more than 60 scientific partners and more then 400 events/year spread from the north to the south of Italy in 30 cities, captivating more then 50.000 attendees whit an non negligible impact on the people and the press.
The project during the years followed and sometime anticipate the science communication trend, and BEES (BE a citizEn Scientist) is the last step of this long and thrilling evolution that brought to a huge public engagement in our territory.
The experience, methodology, and the major successful examples of the organised events are presented together with the results of the long term project impact.
Keywords: Science communication, public engagement, citizen science.
