The EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF) is a biennial, pan-European, general science conference dedicated to scientific research and innovation. Each conference aims to deliver stimulating content and lively debate around the latest advancements and discoveries in the sciences, humanities and social sciences.

In 2016, between 23 and 27 July, Manchester will play host to ESOF: some 4,500 leading thinkers, innovators, policy makers, journalists and educators from more than 90 countries, will come to discuss current and future breakthroughs in contemporary science.  In particular, ESOF offers a major opportunity for early careers researchers (ECRs) to meet and exchange ideas with leading scientists and researchers, business people, policy makers, and science and technology communicators.

Fees for early career researchers range from £120-£150 to attend. See the link above for full programme and booking details.




Course dates for the academic year 2016-2017 will be announced in September 2016
