Ecsite, the European Network for Science Centres & Museums - is the only Europe-wide network organisation that links 400 science centres and museums, natural history museums, zoos, aquariums, universities and research organisations 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. Each year the Annual Conference brings together 1000 science communicators from Europe and abroad. Ecsite facilitates co-operation among Europe's science centres and museums – establishing standards, sharing expertise, disseminating best practice, encouraging collaboration and developing training programmes. The organisation has extensive experience in projects with the financial support of Community programmes including several in a coordinating role. The network is the hub of European science communication professionals, and therefore a strong partner for dissemination of information, through its members, contacts and partners.
