Cross-network executive forums - Registration now open

All six networks are taking part in the forums

Update on 16 September: all 14 seats for the three forums have been filled. There's no waiting list.

The six regional networks of science centres and museums that span the globe; ASPAC, ASTC, Ecsite, NAMES, RedPOP, and SAASTEC, are together offering three online forums for their members’ chief executives on the science engagement field response to, and recovery from, the Covid-19 pandemic. With the Covid-19 crisis, science centres and museums, as well as other science engagement organisations worldwide, are facing similar challenges and opportunities, which affect and modify their financial sustainability, their organisational structures and needs and their societal role.

In these three forums, up to 85 leaders from around the world will share their reflections and put their collective intelligence together to understand, focus, and distil the new opportunities and challenges brought about by the pandemic.

The dates, the times, the themes

Tuesday 29 September, from 14.00-16.00 CEST: Planning for financial sustainability

Tuesday 27 October, from 14.00-16.00 CEST: Managing change and shaping our organisations

Tuesday 17 November, from 14.00-16.00 CEST: Envisioning our societal role


Each virtual forum will last two hours, with plenary moments and intimate break-out sessions.

A maximum of 85 chief executives - up to 14 representatives per region - will be welcomed in a space safe for discussions, without recording, proceedings, or observers.
