Barcelona, location of the 2018 Ecsite Directors Forum, 14-16 November 2018

Senior Managers of Ecsite Full member organisations will be coming together in Barcelona on 14-16 November for 2.5 days of networking, high-profile talks & workshops and peer learning. Register now!

The event is hosted by the Natural Sciences Museum of Barcelona and Barcelona Ciència.

The theme is "Science engagement organisations as Citizen labs". Two keynote speakers will be sharing their thoughts on the "Science engagement organisations as Citizen labs" theme: Artur Serra, expert in living labs and citizen laboratories, and Mara Ballestrini, expert in human-computer interaction and participatory technology.

The programme also entails a marketplace workshop on open science labs and their potential for science engagement, a 'provocation' session by the 2018 Mariano Gago Ecsite Awards winners and an opportunity to exchange with the Ecsite Board. Social highlights include dinner at the Natural Sciences Museum on the first night, a cycling field trip to two nearby Barcelona citizen labs on the second day (other mobility options available) and countless networking opportunities.
