In recent years, science shows have come to the forefront as a means of bridging the gap between scientists and the general public.
EuroScienceFun (ESF) encourages the exchange of best practices between science shows by means of conferences and exchange program. In this manner, the knowledge that is present in each science show is made available to the community so that their quality can be improved.
Furthermore, ESF seeks to promote science shows as a method of science communication. It does this by stimulating projects that showcase science show, by encouraging research into science shows and by establishing a central entry point for science event organizers.
