The 2015 Ecsite Annual Conference will take place in the alpine city of Trento, Italy, on 11 - 13 June 2015. It will be hosted by MUSE, Trento’s new science museum designed by Renzo Piano, nestled in the Dolomites mountains.
The Ecsite Annual Conference is an interactive event on science communication drawing 1,000 professionals from science centres, natural history museums, universities, aquariums, zoos, research institutes and private companies. It is open to all science engagement professionals, inside and outside Ecsite member organizations. During three full days participants enjoy inspiring sessions and workshops, a rich social programme to remember for years to come and the chance to sample cutting edge products in the Business Bistro trade fair.
The main topics of the Conference are:
- Science and society
- Exhibits, design and new media
- Audiences, engagement and learning
- Communications and new media
- Operations and management
The 2015 Conference theme, Food for curious minds, offers room for countless metaphoric interpretations but also invites to tackle the concrete topic of food and energy, a burning global challenge. It echoes the theme of Universal EXPO 2015 in Milan.
