It is our pleasure to invite you to the First Regional Science Promotion Conference, organized in Belgrade, October 2 and 3, 2013, by the Center for the Promotion of Science under the patronage of UNESCO. We find that it is very important to gather science promotion professionals, practitioners and enthusiasts from our region to share experience, network and formulate the next steps towards strengthening the link between science and society.
It is time to meet each other, discuss our challenges and share experiences. Our region is rich in creative people who share similar cultural background, so synergy should be easy to establish. Together we will explore how to increase the scientific culture in the region and identify the short and long term strategic goals of science promotion.
Keynote sessions will bring on board international experts and organization representatives of research and education institutions, science camps and media. These wide network of science promoters will allow diverse contributions to the Conference's thematic sessions:
- Popular Science Events
- Media and Science (Back - to - back Program with UNESCO South East Science Journalism School)
- Science Camps
- Science Center Communication Towards the Public
- Science Communication From Research Iinstitutions Towards the Public
- Knowledge Economy: Science, Innovation and Economic Prosperity
Please, save the date for the First Regional Science Promotion Conference. Detailed information about the invited speakers, venue and time schedule of the conference will be published shortly. The on- line registration starts on June 1, 2013.
Attending this Conference will give you the opportunity to exchange ideas and contribute to the drafting of the Action Plan for the enhancement of impact and visibility of science in our societies.
We are looking forward to connecting with you and creating a powerful network of science promotion and communication professionals.
