The call for projects aims at providing financial support for micro-projects that will get Brussels citizens enthusiastic about science and technology and about exciting careers in these fields. This year's theme is science and society: how does it work? The 'scientific method' often remains obscur to many people. At the same time, we see a growing distrust of science. How can we shed light on these interactions between science and society? What is the difference between scientific facts, ideologies, beliefs or fake news? How can we make young people aware of the treatment of scientific information by the media and its reception bij citizens, especially themselves? This concrete starting point makes it possible to investigate differences between objective facts, perceptions, subjectivity, and helps young people to take a nuanced look of today's society.
