Ecsite gathers more than 350 organisations committed to inspiring people with science and technology and enabling dialogue between science and society.
Ecsite was founded in January 1989 by 23 organisations from the young European science centres scene. Over the past 25 years, the association has grown considerably in size and scope, adapting to its members' changing social role and organisational needs.
The Ecsite Executive Office is strategically located in Brussels, close to the European institutions and easily accessible from the airport and international train station.
The European dimension of the Ecsite network is reflected in the composition of its governing body and advisory structures, where more than 10 European nationalities are represented at any given time.
As a small multinational team of professionals, we plan and deliver member services, keep the information flow active among members, lead or contribute to European projects and organise Ecsite events in collaboration with host organisations.
Ecsite collaborates with other organisations worldwide, acting as an advocate of science engagement and representing its members' interests.
