Name the ECCI Café

ECCI will soon be moving into its new home at High School Yards and we need your help to find a name for the brand new Café.

High School Yards

The ECCI building is on the site of Edinburgh’s historic Old High School, which is being transformed into a state of the art, energy efficient hub for knowledge, innovation and skills.

We need your help to find a name that reflects the site’s fascinating history, the new building’s world-class green credentials or the world-changing plans ECCI has for the future.

How to Enter

ECCI mug

All you need to do to enter is go to the competition page on the ECCI website completing the competition form with your suggestion and details of how we can get back in touch.

The competition is open for 4 weeks, after which we’ll select a shortlist of the best entries to be put up for a public vote.

If your suggestion is selected you’ll get to cut the tape at our opening event, will be remembered forever more by a commemorative plaque in the Café and we’ll even treat you to your first 10 cups of coffee in your very own ECCI mug.
