MUSE will host Ecsite Annual Conference from June 11th to 13th, 2015.
Almost 1000 experts and 350 relators coming from 50 different countries will talk about scientific communication. Ecsite is the ideal place for insiders to work together in order to build more efficient strategies to involve people in science as well as a big showcase for current science centres and museums that have a so important role in our society.
The theme is “Food for Curious Minds” according to Milan Expò, dealing with issues of feeding and energy, in order to create an active citizenship with a great awareness on more important issues of our time.
