Welcome to the

European Science Engagement Platform!

The EUSEA Science Engagement Platform was established to serve public engagement professionals and to help them find inspiration, resources, methods, and tools for running participatory, dialogue-oriented science communication activities.  

One of the biggest challenges when planning a science engagement event is finding the right format. An event that is appropriate to your topic and your target audience. So here we showcase a range of possible formats, as well as some practical examples to help you find the right way to present your event.  We also have a database of valuable toolkits and good reads, full of advice and tips on how to run your perfect Sci Comm event.

Take a look at the purpose of the platform, recommended formats and valuable resources for science engagement practitioners:

The European Science Engagement Platform was developed by two EU projects, along with the contribution of a number of engaged EUSEA members who have shared their experiences and ideas, as well as their public engagement wisdom with us.

A special thank you to Wissenschaft im Dialog and Vetenskap & Allmänhet for offering support and content.

These two EU projects formed the basis for the new European Science Engagement Platform:

NUCLEUS – New Understanding of Communication, Learning and Engagement in Scientific Institutions. From 2014 to 2019 the project fostered engaged research and innovation processes  across Europe, in China and South Africa.

SUSTAIN is an Erasmus+ project developing Citizen Science methodologies. The project will spark engagement and create new tools for teachers and students who study sustainable landscapes and bird migration. https://www.sustainablelandscapes.eu/

Are you a newcomer in the fields of science communication and public engagement? If so, you will find a vauable introduction and overview of the strategies, goals and tools in this Policy Brief on Science Communication, published by the Science in Society network in February 2020.
