Solidarity with Manchester

Ten months ago, Manchester was organising the 7th edition of the EuroScience Open Forum / ESOF 2016.

Today, the team of the next edition, ESOF Toulouse 2018, is very sad and wishes to express solidarity with the people from Manchester, touched yesterday evening by an horrible attack.

Now it’s time for sadness but hope remains for better days acknowledging that science, human intelligence and open mindness are key for a more human society.
