Committees and DG Research visit in Toulouse

Very busy, buzzy days for the ESOF 2018 team in Toulouse!

On September 21-22th, the Programme Committee met in Toulouse to review the proposals made in the framework of the “Science programme” Call for Sessions. Then the Steering Committee gathered September 28-29 and validate some important advancement points regarding the preparation of ESOF 2018. The programme of the next ESOF is now taking shape.

The ESOF delivery team was then very honored to welcome Robert-Jan Smits, Director of DG Research and Innovation at the European Commission. During his stay in Toulouse, Robert-Jan Smits visited some of the places where ESOF 2018 will take place and enjoyed the friendly and sunny atmosphere of the “pink city”.

A working meeting with the ESOF team allowed him to have a global view of the ESOF 2018 organisation and advancement: “Toulouse has a lot to offer and ESOF 2018 is in good hands. It will certainly be one of the best ESOF edition!” declared Robert-Jan Smits. Finally, Robert-Jan Smits was present at the Université Fédérale Toulouse Midi-Pyrénées to inaugurate the European Researchers’ Night, another way to discover the innovation spirit of Toulouse.

ESOF Toulouse 2018 was also present during the European Researchers’ Night with a special event dedicated to the young public: great success for the “Researcher’s hunting” party!
