EIROforum is a group of eight major European Intergovernmental Research Organisations, EIROs*, each of which is a world leader in its field. All have long and distinguished track records, and in 2020, all will be engaged in preparations for the coming decades. This session will address the theme "breaking frontiers in science and knowledge" by looking at the avenues that will be opened up by the work going on today. It will focus on projects that will take us through mid-century, highlighting both the core science that will be addressed, and the accompanying innovations that will have an immediate impact on people's lives. The session will also address the overall motto of ESOF2020 - Freedom for science, science for freedom - by bringing together a diverse panel of speakers, with a leading journalist as moderator.
