European Science Engagement Conference
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. In 2020 the conference will be held in Cork, Ireland.

About the organizer
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 activites as a strong partner striving to develop science festivals and public engagement activities that make an impact across Europe.
