Ecsite Online

On Thursday, 11 June, which would have been the first day of the 2020 Ecsite Conference, Ecsite hosted a day to (re)connect, challenge & stimulate your minds, feel part of a big family and be proud of who we are as a science engagement network. Thanks to Ecsite's members, all #EcsiteOnline events were open and free to all professionals engaging audiences with science and technology.

Overview of the day

We were welcomed to the day by Ecsite's President Herbert Münder, followed by a thought-provoking Kavli Foundation keynote lecture by Nicolas Nova, on design fictions and the near future. Two panel sessions followed later in the day: on learning from this pandemic to improve our organisations and on the future of business models. In total you'll have watched over 40 people from across the network on-screen.

In the afternoon, we were touched by the words of Ecsite's Executive Director Catherine Franche. There were also lots of opportunities to have fun and let your hair down: we played a game with Ecsite's GameLab, tinkered with everyday household items with the #MakeEcsite community, danced with the Ecsite Jazz Band and ended the day with a quintessential pub quiz. There was also lots of opportunity to network in the meetups created on the app during the day.
