The European Science Events Association, Eusea, has received a grant from the Swedish Institute to support science events organizers in the Baltic region to be better prepared for participation in European collaborative projects.

This project is funded within the Swedish Institute’s framework of Baltic Region seed funding to start new and develop existing networks and collaborations in the field of science communication, with particular emphasis on the societal aspects of science events.
The objective is to initiate and strengthen a network of science festival organisers in Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Ukraine, Poland and Georgia with the aim to prepare members of the network for eligibility and capacity for EU or other funding for collaborative projects, e.g. within the “Science with and for Society” work programme.

15 festival organisers in these countries have been invited to the Eusea Annual Conference in Copenhagen and to a one-day workshop in Lund, Sweden, to get to know each other and to find and develop possible areas of common interest.
