Ecsite goes Eurovision

Closing the first day of the Online Conference, everyone is invited to leap from science engagement into the world of musical immersion. 'Ecsite goes Eurovision' will have glamorous hosts, not-super-judgy expert commentators, and the all-important public voting, in which you’ll get to choose your winner.

Psst: we're still calling for performances! Apply by 30 April.

Two high-profile keynote speakers

Ewine van Dishoeck - Our origins in space

Ewine is a professor of molecular astrophysics at Leiden University. The work of her group innovatively unites the world of chemistry with that of physics and astronomy to follow the trail of molecules from tenuous interstellar clouds to new planetary systems. Dr van Dishoeck has been heavily involved in planning major new telescopes and has been awarded many prizes, including the Kavli Prize for Astrophysics in 2018.

John H. Falk - Re-thinking how to define and measure the value of museum experiences

John is the Director of the Institute for Learning Innovation and a leading expert on free-choice learning. Multiple award winner, Dr. Falk’s current research focuses on understanding the identity/self-related reasons people utilise free-choice learning settings during their leisure time; studying the community impacts of museums, libraries, zoos and aquariums and helping cultural institutions re-think their educational positioning in the 21st century.

The detailed Conference programme will be released during the week of 17 May.

Countless conversations

The Conference will be hosted on Hopin, allowing access to many interactive areas and multiple networking opportunities. It is shaped by a very creative community - you'll not want to miss out on so many exciting, stimulating occasions to connect.

Say hello

Life is a carousel and this year, Live is also one! At the Conference you will be encouraged to jump into a "speed meeting" area to meet peers in a fun and serendipitous way!

Be a social butterfly

You'll be able to find out who exactly is joining the Conference and book meetings with attendees either one-to-one or in small groups to simply catch up or brainstorm new ideas and projects.

Get down to business

Join the "Business Buzz," the Conference's trade fair where participants can explore your booth, schedule meetings, watch live sessions, promotional videos, product demonstrations...

... relax and have fun!

Let your curiosity take over and join the fun at our re-invented social events. Be pleasantly surprised at our 'not-so-Nocturne'! And... it wouldn't be the Ecsite Conference without a party, right?

The Ecsite Conference is well known for its open and vibrant feel, with unmissable moments, out-of-the-box session formats, and a passionate community open to welcome new voices, test new concepts, merge disciplines and drive the science engagement field forward.

You will not want to miss this chance to (re)connect with your peers, professionally and emotionally.

Register here and join us in June!
