Local Roots, European Reach: Scaling ‘Heimspiel Wissenschaft’ Across Europe

“Heimspiel Wissenschaft” widens the impact of science outreach by reconnecting scientists with their rural hometowns, fostering meaningful engagement with typically inaccessible audiences. This project, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, involves collaboration between the HRK, con gressa, and the #SciCommLab at Heidelberg University. In our workshop, we’ll showcase the project’s success and discuss plans for expanding it across Europe. By leveraging personal connections and rural communication networks, we address the challenge of engaging non-traditional audiences in science. Attendees will gain insights into the power of personal connections in science outreach and explore opportunities for collaboration and replication of this model.
