Annual Conference 2015

Food for curious minds

The 2015 Ecsite Annual Conference will take place in the alpine city of Trento, Italy, 11 – 13 June. It will be hosted by MUSE, Trento’s new science museum designed by Renzo Piano, nestled in the Dolomites mountains. Watch the trailer, browse through the First announcement and watch out for our monthly “Cooking the conference” portrait!

The theme “Food for curious minds” offers room for countless metaphoric interpretations but also invites to tackle the concrete topic of food and energy, a burning global challenge. It has been chosen to echo the theme of Universal EXPO 2015 in Milan (“Feeding the Planet – Energy for life” 1 May – 30 October).

Science museums and science centres are proud to provide their visitors with food for thought. To feed savvy audiences delightful and novel flavours, science engagement professionals need to nurture their own curious minds! Come to Trento to get plenty of food – for body and mind.

86 session proposals have now been selected by the Annual Conference Programme Committee – out of more than 200 submissions. Browse through them
