First annual meeting of academy communications professionals

31 May 2023
European academy staff are invited to join the first meeting for professionals working on communications.

This in-person meeting lasts two half-days. It is kindly hosted by the Polish Academy of Sciences in the Staszic Palace in Warsaw.

At this meeting, we will dig deeper into the challenges, hear about good practices from our peers, and work on the skills and capacities we need to address these issues.

The process will be structured and facilitated to ensure a lively and dynamic workshop with plenty of time to connect and exchange with peers from academies across Europe.
