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 counts 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 organization has extensive experience in projects funded by the European Commission, 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. Ecsite has extensive experience in European projects; it is currently involved in 7 Horizon 2020 projects.
