The 2023 International Directors Forum on Science Engagement hosted by Ecsite member Heureka, The Finnish Science Centre, will take place from lunchtime on 14 -16 November.

The six regional science engagement networks of ASPAC, ASTC, Ecsite, NAMES, RedPOP and SAASTEC are collaborating with Heureka to produce a high-level Science Engagement meet up for the CEOs and senior leaders of member institutions.

"We are very proud to host this first of a kind International Directors Forum at Heureka which will stimulate discussion and the sharing of knowledge between senior leaders, with a balance between practical and strategic topics" said Mikko Myllykoski CEO of Heureka.

CEOs and senior leaders from the will gather in person to share practical knowledge and strategic insights on the future of the science engagement field with a focus on the issues of the Climate and Biodiversity Crisis, and Misinformation.

Different from previous international events, it will be a unique opportunity to network and build relationships in a small group of only 200 participants outside of a Director’s own regional network. And to join well-facilitated discussions with other directors, recognising their expertise in leading their institutions and providing a confidential platform to share this expertise, debate and exchange knowledge with one another.

The Forum aims to act as a catalyst for change, to put the importance of science engagement organisations work in their communities at the forefront of discussion both within the Forum and more broadly.

The Science engagement organisations will meet on the afternoon of 14 November and there will be an opportunity to stay for 17 November to follow a programme of local tours in the Helsinki region.
