Call for Host - Directors Forum 2024

Ecsite welcomes full member organisations to host the 2024 Ecsite Directors Forum.

Every year in November (or late October), the Directors and Senior Managers of European science engagement institutions meet at the Ecsite’s Directors Forum.

This two-day event is a safe space to discuss topics of strategic importance for science centres and museums, and other science engagement organisations, share lessons learned, and network with high-level professionals.

Hosting the Directors Forum provides a range of benefits for the host organisation including reinforcing the host’s position as a thought leader in the European science engagement field and showcases organisational know-how and expertise to building partnerships that can lead to future collaborations.
