EMME 2013 - Euro-Mediterranean and Middle East Summer School of Science Communication

22 September 2013 - 27 September 2013
EMME participants

Forty science communicators from southern Europe, North Africa and the Middle East attended the first edition of the Euro-Mediterranean and Middle East Summer School of Science Communication (EMME) at Parque de las Ciencias (Granada, Spain) from 22 to 27 September 2013.

The project was initiated when NAMES (North African and Middle East Science Centres Network) contacted its sister organization Ecsite, inviting it to participate in a dynamic that saw a growing number of science centers and science communication activities occurring around the Mediterranean and especially in the Middle East in the last few years. Parque de la Ciencias volunteered to host the event after the fire that destroyed Città della Scienza, the original venue. Training was delivered in strategic planning, management, exhibition development, new technologies and learning methodologies.
