ESOF2020 has been postponed to September 2-6. ESOF is currently reaching out to all the stakeholders that have been affected by the change. If you have not been contacted yet, please email the organisers in order to quicken the process.


The EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF) is a biennial, pan-European, general science conference dedicated to

scientific research and innovation. Each conference aims to deliver stimulating content and lively debate around the latest advancements and discoveries in the sciences, humanities and social sciences.


ESOF brings together over 4,500 leading thinkers, innovators, policy makers, journalists and educators from more than 90 countries, to discuss current and future breakthroughs in contemporary science.


ESOF is one of the best opportunities for everyone from leading scientists,  early careers researchers, business people, policy makers, science and  technology communicators to the general public to come together to find  out more about how science is helping us advance today.


ESOF2020 will comprise several distinct programme tracks:


  • A Science programme of seminars, workshops and debates on the latest research and related policy issues, structured around a programme of keynote speakers and the latest scientific issues.


  • A Science to Business programme to create opportunities for industrialists, researchers, policy makers and

    business/academia support organisations to engage with one another, learn, network and debate the issues surrounding the exploitation of breakthroughs in science and share ideas and best practise for improving the commercial outcomes from research.


  • A Careers programme to give insight into how the job market is evolving, what new opportunities are emerging, and provide the tools to understand how to develop a relevant and flexible skillset.


  • Science in the City Festival is a public engagement programme which will begin two weeks before the official kick-off of the ESOF2020.


  • Other public engagement programmes.


    Registration for the conference is open.
