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 first EMME Summer School, took place in 2013 at Parque de las Ciencias ( in Granada, Spain, in 22 – 27 September. The second edition, in 2015, took place at the Planetarium Science Centre of Bibliotheca Alexandrina ( in Alexandria, Egypt, in 5 – 10 September.

Both editions were attended by about fifty science communication professionals, including experienced and young ones, from Algeria, Egypt, France, Italy, Kuwait, Palestine, Portugal, Spain, Tunisia, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom.
