Ecsite Annual conference 2015 - Trento 11-13 June

Enjoy a stay in the north Italian tiny region of great innovation, economic dynamism, social cohesion and quality of life.

In June 2015 ECSITE welcomes you in Trento, one of the beautiful Italian Alpine cities, to attend the annual conference from 11th to 13th June at MUSE. The 26th edition of the annual conference of the European museums and science centers network ECSITE is preparing to welcome hundreds of professionals from all over the world in Trento at the new science museum MUSE and nearby fair building. 

MUSE offers a location of excellence thanks to its architecture designed by Renzo Piano, with innovative solutions related to the exhibited content, both in terms of sustainable architecture and science museology. 

Surrounded by green environment and river waters, MUSE tells the fascinating stories of the mountain environments - from the local Dolomites to the Tanzanian tropical mountain areas. 

Designed by the museum staff together with RPBW and London Natural History Museum, MUSE's building, narrative and exhibition will be worth to be evaluated just two years after the opening by all science communication professionals. 

Moreover, the theme of the conference refers to world EXPO 2015 in Milan and allows a wide interpretation of food, both literally and metaphorically.

The 2015 edition of the ECSITE conference returns to Italy after six years with a meaningful topic: "Food for curious minds". The theme will be interesting for a great variety of professionals, working in different fields: research, scientific knowledge dissemination, food and health, agriculture, fair production & trade, nutrition. 

We believe that the participation in the conference will provide opportunities to exchange knowledge, strengthen international connections, enrich and broaden the existing networks.
