In a partnership with Ecsite and NAMES, the Euro-Mediterranean and Middle East (EMME) Summer School for Science Communication was launched in 2013 to responds to the growing number of science centres and science communication activities around the Mediterranean, especially in the Middle East.
The objective of this professional training course is to train new leaders for the management of science centres, scientific and cultural organisations, giving them a strong set of competencies and skills that they will be able to adapt afterwards, depending on the size and type of their institutions and projects.
The Summer School will reinforce their capacities for development while aspiring to strengthen dialogue and exchanges among these institutions, in an attempt to build a growing community of players in the region and to maximise their potential impact as agents of change for societies.
The Main aims of the EMME Summer School are to:
>Consolidate existing science centres and museums in the Euro-Mediterranean and Middle East, their activities and programmes;
>Support the development of new science centres and museums, as well as communication projects in the region;
>Enhance science centres and museums’roles in advocacy in society, including but not limited to institutions at the national and regional levels;
>Exchange expertise, practices and activities among professionals in the field;
>Stimulate the development of cooperative projects among the members of the two networks.
The Specific Goal of the Summer School is to establish a Euro-Mediterranean and Middle East Framework for science centres and museums to reinforce their capacities, strengthen dialogue and exchange amongst the participating institutions, and increase the community of players working for public engagement with science in the region.
