2019 Ecsite Conference

Pushing boundaries
Copenhagen, Denmark 6 June 2019 - 8 June 2019

See you in Denmark

Denmark is a small country of just over 5 million people with a tradition of "hygge". This Danish word (pronounced hooga) loosely translates as "coziness" and is highly desirable. Come and experience hygge at #Ecsite2019.

Conference venues


All conference sessions will be held inside the Experimentarium science centre, the former home of the Tuborg Brewery. Located just 6 km from central Copenhagen, Experimentarium is very easily reached by public transport or bike.

Experimentarium re-opened its doors to the public with 18 brand new exhibitions in January 2017, all exploring new boundaries for science communication. Since 1991, Experimentarium has let knowledge and curiosity come alive with a hands-on approach and explored the world through science and technology together with millions of curious children and adults. Everything is designed to be touched at Experimentarium, so that play and learning always are interconnected. Creating science engaging experiences that are immersive and relate to every-day life is one of the trademarks of Experimentarium.

Wallmans The Circus Building

A Copenhagen landmark, the Wallmans Circus Building has been a venue for popular entertainment for more than 100 years. The space was once home elephants, seals and clowns and is now offering a dinner & show experience combining musical interpretations, dancing and acrobatics. The Conference's Gala Dinner will be held under the impressive dome of the Circus Hall, exclusively booked for Ecsite Conference attendees on that night. There will be short breaks in between each act, giving you time to take in all the impressions and enjoy each other’s company. The floor will be turned into a dance floor after dinner.

Copenhagen - designed for life

Copenhagen is said to be the world’s most liveable city. Every bit of Copenhagen is designed for life, from the buildings and architecture, the food and the water, the many bikes and the intelligent infrastructure to the free education, free health care, and a society firmly focused on the balance between work and play.
Copenhagen is a pocket-sized fairy tale and at the same time a buzzing and innovative hub of ideas. Copenhagen is a city large enough for every kind of life philosophy, but small enough to bicycle from one end to the other in twenty minutes. The Copenhagen lifestyle is based on tradition, science, history and culture, yet constantly moving forward, giving the city a unique blend between the harmonies of old world charm and the progressive beat of a truly cosmopolitan city. Experimentarium is only a short bus trip or bicycle ride away from most parts of Copenhagen.
