We are happy to invite you to the European Science Engagement Conference 2020, to be held in Cork, Ireland, 16-17 April. Make sure to arrive a day early to enjoy a very special Pre-Conference Program plus the Irish FameLab Finals on 15 April!

A preliminary conference programme can be found here: https://eusea.info/eusea-annual-conference/programme/

3 organisers will work together to prepare an exciting program: The Cork Institute of Technology, Blackrock Castle Observatory and EUSEA.

We would like to thank all our partners who support the EUSEA Conference 2020:

Since the venue of #EUSEA2020 will be the renowned Cork Music School we chose a conference-topic related to this very special location:

Conducting Public Engagement in Times of Dissonances.

These questions will guide our discussions:

  • What does it mean to be a good conductor working with an increasing variety of players?
  • How can we make the “sounds of science” be heard in a cacophony of different noises?
  • Should we strive for harmony? Or seek and enjoy dissonances as those musical elements who make a piece interesting?
  • How do we compose good science communication? And who are our listeners?

The call for proposals is closed, we will publish the conference program in January 2020.

Don’t miss this opportunity to share, discuss and develop the diversity of knowledge, experiences, tools and methodologies that make our field vital and relevant across institutions, topics and countries.
