fbpx Nocturne | Ecsite


Get a glimpse of the local and national science engagement scene! The Nocturne will be taking place at the Natural History Museum of Geneva, its famous dioramas and edgy temporary exhibitions - but also in the beautiful Malagnou park, recently converted into a natural laboratory and educational place devoted to promoting local biodiversity and nature in the city. Science activities will be led by scientists from the Museum, the University of Geneva and CERN. An evening of relaxation and science, rich in Creative Collisions and surprises.

The Natural History Museum was designed in 1966 by Swiss architect Raymond Tschudin, it is located very close to the city centre and easily reached by public transport.

A detailed programme will be available on-site. Dinner will be available at several food points.

Recommended dress code: casual. Bring comfortable shoes. As for all events, don’t forget to have your conference badge with you.
