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.

Host

Museu de História Natural e da Ciência da Universidade do Porto

Built upon university Natural History, Physics and Chemistry collections, dating from as early as the 18th century, the recently created Natural History and Science Museum of the University of Porto (MHN-UP) came about as the result of the merging of two major museums in the University – the Natural History Museum, and the Science Museum, both formally created in 1996.
