We see ourselves as a family of public engagement experts, striving to accelerate open innovation in different areas of academia and society. Our spirit is in constant expansion: We believe that good ideas and enthusiasm are contagious! We stand for societies involved in their scientific advances, who care for knowledge as a crucial path to make a better living on this planet.

EUSEA is an international knowledge-sharing platform and accelerator of innovation in the fields of public engagement. The association addresses experts involved in the design, organisation and implementation of public engagement activities across Europe. EUSEA is an active consortium member in projects funded by the European Commission and supports partners in European funding policies.

In times of rapid changes in scientific institutions and society at large, science festivals and public engagement activities offer much more than “edutainment”. Collaboratively designed engagement activities can build bridges – between science and society, researchers and citizens, policy makers and innovators. EUSEA initiates and supports many of these activities as a strong partner, striving to foster public engagement that make an impact across Europe.
