PLACES - Platform of Local Autorities and Cities Engaged in Science
Other partners involved:
Città di Lugano, ECSITE, EUSEA, ERRIN
The project focuses on developing and strengthening City Partnerships, bringing together 67 science centers, museums, festivals and events, each partnering with local authorities, and 10 European regional networks. The project facilitates cooperation among these alliances to structure their science communication activities, sharing tools, resources and results. The work developed in PLACES will provide a wealth of data, good practices and innovative strategies concerning Science in Society issues. Besides the valuable knowledge contributing to the advancement of the science communication field in general, PLACES will produce concrete recommendations for policymakers and the EU regarding the engagement of citizens, local authorities and the key role of science communicators in the development of the Cities of Scientific Culture.
