Culture, Science & Society programs, how to implement them in our institutions (EUPRIO Mobility Programme)

Our universities all offer, in one form or another, Culture, Science and Society programs. But how can we encourage proposals and new ideas while avoiding the multiplication of scattered individual initiatives with no real impact or visibility for the institution? How can/should the management and communication of these programmes be centralised? What structure should be put in place? Our EMP project looked at these issues and compared the views of different institutions in order to develop not only conceptual recommendations, but also a practical toolbox for setting up public events. We will share the results of these reflections and discuss their usefulness and other potential challenges.
