Ecsite: Association Européenne des Expositions Scientifiques, Techniques et Industrielles aisbl
Ecsite, the European Network for Science Centres & Museums - is the only Europe-wide network organization that links science centres and museums, natural history museums, zoos, aquariums, universities and research organizations in Europe as active members. The common thread uniting these institutions is a commitment to public engagement, communicating science through accessible, interactive exhibits and programmes.
Ecsite consists of 400 member institutions located in 30 different European countries. It facilitates co-operation among Europe’s science centres and museums – establishing standards, sharing expertise, disseminating best practice, encouraging collaboration and developing training programmes. The network is a hub of European science communication professionals, and therefore a strong partner for dissemination of information.
Ecsite has extensive experience in European projects; it is currently involved in nine projects, in three of which as a coordinator.
Its Annual Conference is the main science communication event in Europe, welcoming 1,000 professionals from Europe and the world. And their Thematic groups bring together professionals to exchange ideas and best practices on specific topics.
