Responsible Research and Innovation is a project initiated by the European Commission in 2014, involving 26 institutions from 30 European countries. Its main purpose is to create science and innovation with society and for society by developing harmonious relations between science and society in Europe. One of the most important dimensions of responsible research and innovation is to make young people aware of scientific specificities of the different aspects of social life and the relationship between science and society. The next step would be encouraging them to choose science as a future path of their career. Therefore it raises the question of the extent to which modern educational systems, not only in Poland, are ready for this kind of challenge. In education strategies or reform projects these issues are firmly underlined. It remains however doubtful whether these are not just idle declarations devoid of real dimension. The paper presents leading European project IRRESISTIBLE aimed at promoting science among young people and making them interested in scientific career. This will be confronted with the Polish young people’s views on science education and their attitude towards scientific career.
Key words: Scientific career / young people / irresistible
