Diversity and the European Public Sphere. Towards a Citizens' Europe
EUROSPHERE is a European Commission-funded Integrated Project within the 6th Framework Programme. The EUROSPHERE Consortium comprises 17 European universities and research institutes and approximately 150 researchers will be working in the project's different parts and phases. The project is coordinated by the University of Bergen.
The overall objective of EUROSPHERE is to develop innovative perspectives on the European Public Sphere and to identify the factors which facilitate or hinder the articulation of a European Public Sphere. The research plan comprises synchronized data collection and analysis activities in 16 countries as well as creation of a Eurosphere Knowledge Base.
In addition to regular research and academic dissemination activities, EUROSPHERE organizes several large-scale conferences, European Forums, researcher training and PhD courses.
