Directors Forum: pitch to talk at the Opening

Case study presentation at the 2017 Ecsite Directors Forum

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

The theme is "Science engagement organisations as Citizen labs". What does this theme mean to you and your organisation? 

We are looking for five contributions of 5 minutes each for the event's Opening. No “traditional” powerpoint, please – only images, videos… or just you on the stage. We’re looking for lessons learnt – take away ideas for your peers that should include both do’s and don’ts, fundamental questions or concerns.
Case studies will be presented on Wednesday 14 November, just after the Ecsite President’s and our Host’s addresses.

Send a short pitch (300 words max) to by 16 September, stating:

  • What your project consists or consisted of
  • The main take away messages you’d like to share
  • Your format idea

Contributions will be reviewed by Ecsite, the Natural Sciences Museum of Barcelona and Barcelona Ciència and selected to ensure an overall balance of partnership types, geographic origin and gender. Priority will be given to those who did not present a case study at previous years' Openings. 

And... register now! Everything you need is on the dedicated Directors Forum page.
