Every autumn, the Senior Managers of Ecsite's Full Member institutions meet to exchange views, make trends and discuss key developments in science engagement: this is the Directors Forum, a carefully orchestrated mix of strategic talks, peer learning, networking and local highlights.

This year's forum will be held on Thursday 4 and Friday 5 November and will be hosted as a physical meeting by La Cité des sciences et de l'industrie, Paris - venue of Universcience in Paris.

Theme: Reconnect - Reinvent

The 18 months which have just passed, paralysing the majority of economic, social and cultural activity, have put us to the test. Confidence in science and in science engagement activities have also faced challenging times.

What does human life become if it is deprived of person-to-person connections, face-to-face dialogue, laughter and emotion? We are delighted to invite you to meet for the 2021 Directors Forum, face-to-face in Paris, to chat live, discuss in person and reconnect with others!

Most of our institutions have not stopped our activities; during this time we have learned to work remotely, we have turned digital for our audiences, and we have continued to prepare projects for upcoming seasons. The DF21 is an opportunity to take a look at the place of our institutions, that of science during the pandemic and to project ourselves into the future, reinventing ourselves. Take part in discussions: what are the lessons learned? How should the field move forward?

Help generate new ideas on how to best continue serving our audiences in this “post-crisis” world.

A detailed programme will be available shortly.

You can register for the event here by 27 October 2021.
