Project Overview

EU-funded Projects

The European Union has funded several projects which were initiated by Science Shops or with Science Shop participation. These projects all aim to improve public access to science and to strengthen public engagement in research. Examples of these international projects can be divided into

  • Living Knowledge projects (project partners are mainly Science Shops)
  • International projects with Science Shop participation or of relevance for Science Shops


National Science Shop projects

Science Shops initiate projects on a local or national level to respond to the needs of civil society. They work with Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), universities, students, researchers and other institutions. Therefore, Science Shop projects are diverse with reference to topics and partners involved. Project examples of university-based Science Shops and autonomous Science Shops can be found in the submenu.
