    infrastructure
  • Funded by the EC
  • FP6, 2005-2008
  • FP7, for 4 yrs since 2009
  • Aims
  • Connect European planetology scientists
  • Define key science goals
  • Exchange ideas and persons
  • Build an interactive database
  • Provide access to facilities and field sites

3
Outreach in Europlanet
  • Vital component
  • See Anitas talk for current/future activities
    (OIL, media center, award scheme)
  • Already done in previous FP
  • Multilingual DVDs
  • Astronomy recipes
  • Best-practice guides
  • Contests
  • PR during EPSC

4
Outreach in Europlanet
  • Outreach officers
  • Node network why ?
  • Europe multilingual
  • Forum for new ideas and best practices

The node network
  • What ? A national node point of contact for
    all outreach activities related to Europlanet in
    the country
  • Bottom-up
  • Top-down

7
The node network
  • What ? Top-down
  • Promote Europlanet amongst scientists (i.e. award
    scheme, media training,)
  • Promote Europlanet amongst media public
  • Respond to queries from the general media and
    public about Europlanet planetary sciences
  • Link with media (e.g. publicize Europlanet PRs)
  • Foster European-wide outreach opportunities on
    planetary sciences

8
The node network
  • What ? Bottom-up
  • Organize and/or be aware of local outreach
    opportunities/experiences in planetary sciences
  • Identify best practices, innovations, and new
    techniques
  • Promote them at the European level
  • Build a list of experts in this domain
  • Promote to the media centerthe national science
    results
  • Fill the national part of the Europlanet
