A postcard from Malta

March 26, 2013

Last week, Anthony Richards of the Science Museum (supported by our very own Leila) delivered some inspirational sessions on working culture  – from how to set it, to getting the right staff on board. The brilliant team at the Malta Council of Science and Technology even did full mock interviews! These interactive sesssions also explored the role of events to keep a science centre sustainable and relevant for our audiences.


This week, Nick is co-ordinating training delivered by the CEO of Techniquest exploring financial sustainability. Sue Dixon will also be getting into the nitty gritty of operational planning, drawing on her experience as head of Visitor Services at the Science Museum, operational planning experience at Mishkat in Saudi Arabia, and operations management at the Olympic Park during the London 2012 Games.


We are leading a highly experienced, multidisciplinary team to deliver the ESF 4.152 Capacity Building for the Malta Council for Science and Technology in preparation for the creation of Malta’s first interactive science centre. This project was part is part-financed by the European Union’s Structural Funds under Operational Programme II, Cohesion Policy 2007-2013: Empowering People for More Jobs and a Better Quality of Life, Priority Axis IV – Strengthening of Institutional and Administrative Capacity.
