The model of science events is diverse among European countries suggesting that each country has different objectives. Although a European perspective is necessary to align the general strategy of science awareness with the research and cultural policies, localization is a must in order to achieve the best results towards citizens. Science weeks should be organized, managed and promoted locally by local organizations that work close to the main target audiences. This implies that associations such as EUSCEA are relevant to coordinate and promote the local and national initiatives providing an added value to such events.
