About the European Science Engagement Association

Founded in 2001 in Vienna, Austria, the European Science Engagement Association, EUSEA, has evolved from a meeting-place for science festival organisers to a collaborative international community for public engagement practitioners. Today, Eusea encourages and supports innovative formats of science-society dialogues across Europe – ranging from Researchers’ Nights to Science Parliaments, from Science Cafés to Maker Faires, from public debates to local strategies uniting scientists with policy makers.

EUSEA today unites around 100 institutions across Europe and beyond – from South East Europe to Russia and China, from the Baltic countries to Israel. Read more
