The Scientific Environment

The ECC is part of the European Academy Bolzano/Bozen (EURAC), a scientific institute for applied research and advanced training.  Scientists from all over Europe have conducted research here in the areas of Applied Linguistics, Minorities and Autonomies, Sustainable Development, Management and Corporate Culture, and Life Sciences since 1992.

Extraordinary Architecture provides the Ideal Setting

An unforgettable event begins with the selection of the proper atmosphere. The EURAC convention centre (ECC) is located in an elegant complex surrounded by greenery, not far from the historical town center of Bolzano/Bozen. The renowned Austrian architect Klaus Kada lent his special touch to the elegant structure, using a great deal of glass in the exterior in order to allow urban as well as natural ambience to flow into the building.

Complete Facilities

Whether a conference or seminar, cultural or social event, the ECC puts 1,250 square meters at your disposal, including an auditorium as its centrepiece, six seminar rooms, a computer room, one conference room, a pressroom, two foyers, a tower terrace, the EURAC Café, and a gardened inner courtyard with its own terrace.


Event participants can relax at the EURAC Café, located right within the premises of the ECC complex. The EURAC Café offers international cuisine, and depending upon number of participants, visitors can either dine at the Café itself, or in the spacious foyers. 

A scientific library, which covers 22,000 scientific works, is also housed in the complex. The catalogue in three languages (Italian, German and English) is also available on-line.

We put your mind at ease

Whether you're planning a seminar, conference, or congress, our experienced ECC team will advise you on the planning, budgeting and execution of your meeting. That includes special requests, like incentives or the organization of your post congress and social program.

Innovative and Flexible Technology

User-friendly high-tech systems and innovative conference technology make you feel at ease. In addition to standard equipment such as overhead and video projectors, mobile wide-screen projectors, camera systems, simultaneous interpreting booths and many other devices are available at the ECC.

Bolzano/Bozen, the gateway to the Dolomites

The city of Bolzano/Bozen is located within a monumental valley, and its medieval center, not far from the bustling "piazza," features many colourful shops and traditional eateries. The bilingual town is singularly European. Here, north meets south, German culture meets Italian, and cool precision meets Mediterranean flair. An old fairground, a young university town and a world-famous holiday destination. The setting alone makes it worth choosing Bolzano/Bozen as the site of your event.

Central Location

The EURAC Convention Center is located in the centre of Bolzano/Bozen, just a ten minutes walk from the historic city center. Bolzano/Bozen is easily reachable either by rail, by car or by plane.
