Sharing science is at the roots of responsible research and innovation, as an active endeavour that needs tools, methods, political will, imagination, curiosity, evaluation and reward. It fosters a dynamic and forward looking practice of science but also conveys the values of research and innovation throughout society.

France will host the EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF) in 2018 and Toulouse becomes the European City of Science. Supported by the Ministry of National Education, Higher Education and Research, the Université Fédérale Toulouse Midi-Pyrénées works in partnership with the Région Occitanie / Pyrénées-Méditerranée, Toulouse Métropole and the Toulouse Chamber of Commerce and Industry to create a unique and memorable event around the motto "Sharing Science: Towards New Horizons".

ESOF 2018 will provide an open platform for demonstrating and debating science and will constitute a showcase for European research and innovation at all levels. 

On behalf of the ESOF 2018 team, Dr Anne Cambon-Thomsen, the ESOF 2018 Champion, will present plans for the 8th edition of ESOF in Toulouse, where science is found everywhere from underground to space.
