What is ESOF ?

The EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF) created by EuroScience in 2004, is the largest biennial interdisciplinary meeting on science and innovation in Europe, for and with society.
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.

The 10th edition of ESOF in 2022 will attract thousands of delegates to Leiden (Netherlands), the host city of ESOF2022 and the European City of Science 2022, during the week of the conference. Along side with the Forum, the Science in the City Festival will be held between January and December 2022 in Leiden.
