Project Description

Ecsite is the European network of science centres and museums. It brings together and empowers more than 350 organisations committed to inspiring people with science and technology and enabling dialogue between science and society. Their shared vision is to foster creativity and critical thinking in European society.

As leader of the project’s Work Package 6 tasks, Ecsite will coordinate and support the work of 14 FIT4FOOD City Labs set up by science centres and Science Shops all over Europe. Their activities will help a wide array of people meet and engage, learn together and contribute to finding solutions to the challenges facing our food systems.

Through Ecsite and the City Labs, the project will connect with citizens who do not currently feel empowered to get involved in decision making and build on their competences using a series of hands-on trainings for children, students, researchers and professionals (to be developed by the City Labs specifically for the project).
