Welcome to the Nordic-Baltic SciComm informal Network meeting!

Our Network has several years of history with annual meetings in Göteborg in April. We’ve also had additional meetings in Denmark and Finland. This year we are happy to invite you to meet in Tallinn, Estonia.

The main purpose of our meetings is to share information on the current situation of SciComm in our countries, to exchange good practices and experiences, and to plan future cooperation. Our meeting in Tallinn will be no exception.

As you can see from the agenda below we have reserved time for both – presentations from participating countries and discussions on cooperation.

If you are willing to give a short presentation on something exciting that is happening is your country we encourage you to do it! Please write your topic in the registration form so we can reserve a time slot for you.

Also – all ideas on possible cooperation areas are very welcome!

General Agenda:

  • November 18 – Dinner. At 19:00, Restaurant Platz, Roseni Str. 7 (covered by Estonian Research Council). NB! Registered participants only.
  • November 19 – Nordic workshop (Hotel Viru Conference Center), Viru väljak 4
