Welcome to the European Science Engagement Conference 2020!
The European Science Engagement Conference annually unites the international community of science communication and public engagement professionals. #EUSEA2020 offers all practitioners in the field a Pan-European platform to expand their networks and enhance their skills via inspiring keynotes, interactive sessions and co-creative workshops. The conference shares and discusses relevant topics, funding programs and formats mainly related to the areas of public engagement and science communication.
A team of partners have worked together to prepare an exciting program for #EUSEA2020: The EUSEA Executive Office and EUSEA Board, plus the planned hosts for 2020: Cork Institute of Technology and Blackrock Castle Observatory.
Due to the COVID19 pandemic, #EUSEA2020 will be transformed into a digital gathering. An excellent opportunity to test new forms of online dialogue, fostering interaction, debate and creative exchanges of ideas. You will meet speakers from all over Europe, prepared to make this online conference as co-creative, joyful and inspiring as possible!
Get ready for a Swirling Digital Get-Together!
EUSEA Main Conference 29-30 October 2020
EUSEA Pre-Conference 28 October 2020
This year’s motto resonates with the challenging times of a global pandemic, in which our well-known ways of engagement may need to be re-arranged or even re-composed:
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?
