The EMME Summer School addresses future leaders in the field of science communication by providing them with professional skills and expertise for the development and management of future sustainable projects.
The Summer School is directed at middle-profile staff of existing science centres/museums and newcomers (universities, local authorities, associations, etc.) with projects of new science centres and museums, and activities in the field of science communication from the Euro-Mediterranean and Middle East regions.
Accordingly, the target groups identified are:
• New managers of existing science centres and museums;
• Staff of existing cultural, scientific and educational organisations: curators, educators, marketing, public relations;
• Promoters of new science communication projects from local authorities, universities and research institutes, associations and NGOs.
The Summer School targets a limited number of participants (maximum 50) so as to ensure a spirit of exchange and cooperation, and to favour the active participation of participants in the training programme.
The EMME Summer School is open to all members of the NAMES and Ecsite networks, with priority given to member institutions from the Middle East, North Africa, and Europe.
Professionals from similar scientific and cultural organisations may be accepted upon the approval of the promoting organisations.
The lecturers of the Summer School are leading experts in the field of scientific museology and museum management, coming from the most prestigious institutions in the field.
