2021 Ecsite Conference

Stavanger, Norway 10 June 2021 - 12 June 2021

Norway: a land of elements

It will be the first time in Ecsite history that Norway hosts the Ecsite Conference. Surrounded by fjords, mountains, beaches and water, the Stavanger region is a truly unique destination. Social events, some in the city centre of Stavanger and Sandnes and some in the agricultural areas of the region will ensure that participants get to see a variety of locations and the nature that Norway is so famous for.

New to the network?

Every year, we welcome over 100 newcomers to the Conference. You'll be joining a friendly, approachable, science engagement family where everyone can learn and share from each other. Whether this is your first Ecsite Conference or your 31st, there are opportunities for everybody to get involved. Our sessions are naturally interactive, so you'll leave with a lot more connections than you started with!

We also hold a Newcomers' Breakfast, especially for those who have not attended an Ecsite Conference before. You'll have the opportunity to meet other newcomers, as well as some familiar faces in the science engagement community while enjoying breakfast, which is always served with a local twist.
