Public Engagement: Programme Design & Organisation
Public Engagement: Programme Design & Organisation Thomas
Streets and squares, museums and theaters, laboratories and lecture halls: city2science opens up new meeting places and creates exciting experiences between city and campus.
Science Festivals or Maker Faires, student parliaments or researchers nights – city2science supports the conception and implementation of innovative public engagement formats. The office does not encourage mere “edutainment”, but strives to create sustainable educational experiences for creative minds of all ages and levels of education. Interactive, dialogue-oriented events are designed to strengthen existing alliances between actors from science, culture, economy and the city. Their aim is to sharpen the particular profile of the location on a local, regional, national and international level.
The services are based on many years of experience in the cooperative design and implementation of innovative events at the interface between science and the city. Impulses from the strategic work in European networks are always embedded in the consultation.
In addition to the design of new engagement formats, city2science provides professional support in the implementation of the events.
