ESOF, an interdisciplinary science and innovation meeting open to everyone

The EuroScience Open Forum, known as ESOF is the largest multidisciplinary science meeting in Europe.
EuroScience has created ESOF in order to:

  • showcase the cutting-edge science and technology developments in all disciplines, from natural sciences to social sciences and humanities,
  • stimulate and provoke public interest, excitement and debate about science and technology,
  • promote a European dialogue on the role of science and technology in society and public policy, by offering a meeting platform for scientists, industry, policy-makers, media, and the general public,
  • provide a valuable resource, including career advice, for young scientists.

Since 2004, ESOF has taken place every other year in a major European city and attracts up to 5 000 participants.
