Pre-Conference workshop
Science ♥ society

This workshop is organised by the European Space Agency – ESA – and the Ecsite Space Group, the Ecsite thematic group that aims to improve and extend communication about space science by helping science centres, space professionals and non-specialists to develop collaborative projects and events.

In a time when we are all increasingly called upon to foster more sustainable futures, what role can space play? Come and explore this theme during a one-day workshop in the experimenta Science Dome, where we’ll bring you up to speed with the latest developments from ESA, national space agencies and industries. Join us to exchange resources with peers and obtain a wealth of knowledge and inspiration. Hands-on sessions and pitches will support participants in creating connections, while working with tools, data and expertise. Several concrete ‘challenges’ will be waiting for you, but feel free to bring your own programme, exhibit or ideas, which we'll then showcase during the main Conference days.
