To celebrate our community and emphasise our multiple identities, EUSEA invites all members to contribute to a colourful photo competition prior to the conference in Tbilisi! Showcasing the creativity of EUSEA members across and beyond Europe, #PICEUSEA will raise awareness about science engagement and compile a picture-pool for professional science engagers.


Challenge your creativity by capturing the dynamic concept of our “EUSEA Identity” in a single frame! Science Engagement across and beyond Europe has many facets and even more faces: From meetings with engaged citizens to interactive experiments with children or students, from inspiring moments of discovery with families to joint activities with stakeholders: EUSEA activities convey the excitement people have when engaging with research. Your photo should tell a story, evoking curiosity and the joy of exploring the wonders of the world. Dive into the challenge and showcase the diverse ways science can engage and inspire people from all generations and backgrounds!
