ESOF in Toulouse

ESOF 2018 in Toulouse

Following Stockholm in 2004, Munich in 2006, Barcelona in 2008, Turin in 2010, Dublin in 2012, Copenhagen in 2014 and Manchester in 2016, the city of Toulouse has been chosen to host for the first time in France this unique European event, which will take place from 9th to 14th July 2018.

Hosting of ESOF brings to Toulouse the designation of "European City of Science".

WELCOME FROM THE ESOF 2018 CHAMPION

“It is a great privilege to host the 8th edition of ESOF in Toulouse. It will be a first for ESOF in France. The chosen motto: ”Sharing Science: towards new horizons” already sets the stage for this event. Toulouse is known for its aeronautics and space research but it has many more scientific facets to offer. Renowned for its warm welcoming and its ”art de vivre”, Toulouse has made accessing science to its citizens one of its main priorities. Toulouse is thus the perfect backdrop for ESOF, which is centred on interactions and dialogue between scientists, science policy makers, innovators and the general public. The Université Fédérale Toulouse Midi-Pyrénées with its 29 institutions of higher education and research and its 120 000 students, is proud to support this event in synergy with numerous private, public and institutional partners.

We look forward to welcoming everyone to the next ESOF in Toulouse.”
