The Natural History and Science Museum of the University of Porto and Ciência Viva are the hosts of this 28th edition, taking place at the heart of one of the most unique, ancient and vibrant historical cities in Europe: Porto.
The largest of its kind in Europe, the Ecsite conference is open to everyone interested in public engagement with science. Join this very special event and its unique balance of large crowds and friendly family atmosphere, broad thematic scope and focussed state of the art sessions, international perspectives and European touch, spotless organisation and room for surprises, peer collaboration and friendly criticism.
Get a solid basis if you’re entering the field and be challenged to advanced strategic thinking if it’s future perspectives you’re after.
Taking up “Life Everywhere” as a motto, we invite you to celebrate life, celebrate the extraordinary diversity of forms evolving in our planet for millions of years, celebrate our existence.
