    Starting today, at the 14th September 2017, the Kidsuniversity in Verona/Italy is back for the third time with the aim to involve the whole city in a colorful programme of learning and experimenting.

    With the Kidsuniversity the University of Verona adopted an innovative children's university model together with Pleiadi Science Farmer and other partner institutions. The programme offers not only workshops of science, arts and humanities for children but also a Teacherslab and the new Familylab.

    If you want to learn more about the Kidsuniversity in Verona you can download the English project information from our website or visit the Italian Kidsuniversity website with the full programme.

    The EUCU.NET presidency for the period 2016-2017 was successfully elected at the General Assembly in Istanbul on the 25th April 2016. We had received four nominations for the three president positions and with the majority of present votes and proxy votes, Michael Seifert (Germany), Tricia Jenkins (Croatia) and Karoline Iber (Austria) were re-elected for another function period [more information about the presidents].

    In their mission statements, all three of them highlighted the achievements which EUCU.NET had accomplished since its formation as a network of practise already eight years ago. At the same time, they expressed the need for EUCU.NET to adapt to current developments in the science engagement area and to the needs, expectations and contributions of our members. This will ensure that EUCU.NET continues as a prosperous, sustainable and influencial network also during the years to come.

    Important topics in this regard were discussed at the EUCU.NET assembly and we will provide you with minutes of the meeting as soon as we can. At the same time, we will invite you to contribute to a discussion about future developments and to make your position heard for decisions to be made in the near future.

    There are still some places for the JCOM Masteclass "Communicating current research to various audiences" available. The course runs from the 1st -5th February 2016 in Trieste/Italy. (http://jcom.sissa.it/masterclasses/communication-2016)

    This course aims at improving scientists' personal skills to communicate the value and the results of their research to various audiences (from children to policy-makers) with different media (from face-to-face conferences to internet).

    JCOM Masterclasses are short, intensive training courses to empower scientists, senior-middle managers of cultural institutions and other professionals to communicate science through different media to various audiences. Each course lasts 5 days and includes theoretical presentations, practical workshops and the presentation of international best practices. Keynote speakers are leading professionals in their sectors, academics and other experts on an international level. Participants have the opportunity to present and discuss their own projects, as well as collect suggestions from the speakers and colleagues.

    This course is a great opportunity: don’t miss it! And Sissa Medialab is able to offer you the participation at a discount rate.

    We are proud to present our brand new EUCU.NET publication: “Catalysts for Change in Science With and For Society – The socio-political dimensions of engagement programmes for children and young people. A Declaration Framework.” [download the pdf-version at our documents section]



    This booklet contains the four “Children as Change Agents” declarations that were adopted at the annual EUCU.NET conferences in Ankara, Porto, Lódz and Vienna from 2011-2014. These conferences took place in close cooperation with the SiS Catalyst project – one of the first Mobilisation and Mutual Learning Action Plans to be funded by the European Commission under FP7.

    The compilation of the declarations – enriched by comments from various experts – sets up a new framework for the development of Children’s Universities and similar activities.

    It is intended as a basis for discussions and for considering the important role that Children’s Universities can have in the empowerment of children and young people – and in giving them a voice to co-create their future. Children’s University programs can support higher education establishments and other science organisations in engaging with the society around them in a responsive way. We are confident that the declaration booklet will serve you well as a tool in this endeavor.

    If you are interested in the dialog with children and young persons about their opportunities in higher education, science and research, the booklet will give you useful information – and it provides insight into the mission of the European Children’s Universities Network.

    If you are not a member yet, joining EUCU.NET will provide you with support and knowledge from a network of innovative organizations and their committed experts and practitioners.

    We are happy to receive your feedback, orders for printed copies of the booklet or your application for EUCU.NET membership.

    Druing the recent visit of a group of students from the department of Social Pedagogy at the University of Tübingen/Germany visited us in the EUCU.NET office. We had good discussions about various Children's University models and many interesting questions surfaced. One of those questions is linked to the professional development of Children's University lecturers: How influences the experience/participation at a Children’s University the teaching methodology of university teachers during their “normal” university teaching? Are there already existing studies related to such an impact on pedagogical strategies of lecturers? We know about many positive anecdotic stories but if you know about related studies please let us know.
