Technopolis® , Technologielaan, 2800 Mechelen,Belgium


The outcomes of the Summit will result in a plan, The Mechelen Declaration, in which the international science centre field and its strategic partners commit to concrete actions for the enhancement of public engagement for a better world. This action plan will build upon the “Declarations” issued at the Toronto (2008) and Cape Town (2011) Science Centre World Congresses.


Technopolis, the Flemish Science Centre

Technopolis endeavours to fascinate everyone with science and technology no matter who or where they are. Up until recently, Technopolis was best known for its popular science centre in Mechelen, which is frequented by especially young families and schools. However, in recent years Technopolis has become a brand for all kinds of activities both inside and outside of Technopolis, both online and offline.
