Science Centre Academy for new science centres

Dear colleague

Technopolis®, the Flemish Science Centre, organizes its 10th Science Centre Academy for new science centres from Wednesday 11 February till Friday 13 February 2015. Highly valuing the exchange of expertise within the field, Technopolis will assist colleagues with the set-up or expansion of their science centre project. During the Science Centre Academy they will be given insight in the mistakes of others and potentially save a lot of money. If you know a colleague who is involved in a new science centre project, please do not hesitate to forward the invitation.

As host and organizer of the 10th Science Centre Academy Technopolis® has again invited a number of experts from internationally acknowledged science centres to contribute to the 2015 Academy. Along with the management team and senior staff members of Technopolis® who have experienced first-hand the set-up and consequent expansion of the Flemish science centre these experts are at your service to answer all your questions about your science centre project.


The programme consists of topics such as concept development, exhibition design, marketing and communication, operations and human resources. Specific topics can be added to the programme upon request by registered participants. Because the Science Centre Academy is intended for relatively small groups of participants, it is possible to deal directly with issues specific to your project. Key to the programme is practical and useful advice from experienced professionals in the science centre field.

For practical reasons, the working language of the Science Centre Academy is English.

Participation is preserved for NON-COMMERCIAL organizations only.

The participation fee amounts to: • € 950 per person (VAT incl.) for registrations up to and including Friday 19 December 2014 • € 985 per person (VAT incl.) for registrations after Friday 19 December 2014
Lunches are included as well as dinner on Wednesday 11 February. In addition, participants are invited to the festive nocturne on Tuesday 10 February to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Technopolis®.

Travel and accomodation

Travel expenses and hotel accommodation are not included in the fee. If you like, we can book a hotel room for you at Holiday Inn Express in Mechelen, the Science Centre Academy hotel. The hotel is located in the centre of Mechelen, near Technopolis®. There is a free shuttle between the Science Centre Academy hotel and Technopolis®, so you needn’t worry about transportation during the seminar. Please take into account that hotel rooms in Mechelen usually have to be booked well in advance.
