The National Research Council (CNR) is the largest multidisciplinary public Research Institution in Italy, distributed all over the country through a network of institutes. Particularly, CNR research scientists have a long experience in dissemination activities promoted by means of a successful national dissemination project, active in Bologna since 2003. This previous experience helped to successfully start to coordinate a group of six European partners within the RM@Schools project of the EIT KIC of Raw Materials in 2016. The aim of these actions is to turn on young people's interest in respect of scientific research, as well as scientific communication through their involvement in a popularization work. Students are then asked to become “science popularisers" themselves to explain the subjects introduced by scientists and produce dissemination material (i.e. movie, comic strips, website, etc.). Every year the Research Area in Bologna dedicates a special week to celebrate the best communication products with students and teachers.
