In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, EuroScience and the Fondazione Internazionale Trieste announce the postponement of the 2020 edition of the ESOF conference to September.

EuroScience and the Fondazione Internazionale Trieste announce that the 2020 edition of the EuroScience Open Forum will be rescheduled to take place from 2 to 6 September in Trieste (Italy). The ESOF event, originally planned to take place from 5 to 9 July, has been postponed as a consequence of the Coronavirus pandemic and the exceptional safety and prevention measures undertaken in Italy and in other countries around the world.

The rescheduling will be accompanied by an update and revision of the ESOF programme. Digital tools, such as teleconferencing for session delivery, will be made available, and session content related to issues concerning public health and the environment, currently at the heart of scientific, political and public debate worldwide, will be amplified. ESOF will maintain its commitments with the sponsors and with the companies involved in the event.
“ESOF is the place where the scientific community meets to reflect on its practices and role in society,” says Stefano Fantoni, ESOF2020 Champion. “In these challenging times, scientific research is more crucial than ever, and its impact, as well as its communication to governments and the public, are of utmost importance. It is for this reason that EuroScience and the Fondazione Internazionale Trieste have taken the decision not to cancel the event but rather to go forward with the EuroScience Open Forum, aware of the urgency of shared strategies to address the current challenges we are facing.”


  • ESOF2020 Trieste generally aims to:
  • PROMOTscience, technology and innovation as key drivers of a sustainable and responsible development that is people-centered;
  • STIMULATdiscussions concerning science, its applications and impact, including ethical issues;
  • ESTABLISH a platform where the dialogue between research institutions, academies and governments is fostered.

ESOF2020 Trieste also has more specific goals:

  • TO STRENGTHEN a scientific and technological network among the Central Eastern European countries, the existing Trieste Science System and the rest of Europe.
  • TO INTEGRATE AND CONNECT this network within the Mediterranean, North Africa and Central Asia;
  • TO CREATE a museum dedicated to Science and Technology and its dissemination.
  • The mission of Trieste as City of Science will continue after ESOF, through the creation of a science center, The North Adriatic Science and Technology Centre, and an independent, multidisciplinary, non-profit Summer Institute aimed at fostering dialogue among scientists, entrepreneurs, policy makers and citizens, involving stakeholders from Central-Eastern Europe and the Balkans.

Further information on the organization of the ESOF2020 event and programme will be available in the coming weeks at www.esof.eu and www.scienceinthecity2020.eu .
