We see ourselves as a knowledge-sharing platform, striving to accelerate innovation in different fields of 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 one 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 events can build bridges – between science and society, researchers and citizens, policy makers and innovators.
The formats are as diverse as the institutions behind them: All across Europe you will find Science Festivals, Researchers’ Nights, Science Parliaments or Maker Faires, organized by universities, municipalities, science centers or cultural institutions. Many such events have evolved all over Europe: from Slovenia to Sweden, from Portugal to Poland, from Israel to Iceland – and more are on the way.
EUSEA initiates and supports many of these activities as a strong partner striving to develop science festivals and public engagement formats that make an impact across Europe.
