RRI SHORT STORY COMPETITION FOR YOUNG STUDENTS

Dissemination as engagement to create a culture of RRI: on December 1 ProGReSS launched a short story competition offering young science students (14-18 years old) the opportunity to tell us how discoveries and inventions have improved – or could improve – their own life and community.
Each partner in the ProGReSS consortium established and kept contact with one or more national schools advertising the initiative and then provided our co-ordinator and the ProGReSS Dissemination Panel with the English translation of the winning national story submitted, which entered the global competition.
The winner of the competition will be announced in the next days and she/he will receive a 350 Euro cash prize, while the runner-up will receive a 150 Euro cash prize. Their stories will be featured on our ProGreSS web site.
