Science Program announced for Euroscience Open Forum 2012 in Dublin
Date:2/18/2012

The science program for Euroscience Open Forum 2012 (ESOF 2012) was officially launched today at the AAAS meeting in Vancouver.

ESOF 2012 will take place in Dublin this year from 11th to 15th July. ESOF 2012, the largest general science meeting in Europe, will be held in the heart of the Irish capital, in the new Convention Centre Dublin.

ESOF is an interdisciplinary, pan-European meeting, held under the auspices of Euroscience, which aims to showcase the latest advances in science and technology, promote a dialogue on the role of science and technology in society and public policy and to stimulate and provoke public interest, excitement and debate about science and technology.

ESOF 2012 Science Programme

The Leading advocate for ESOF 2012 and Chief Scientific Adviser to the Irish Government, Professor Patrick Cunningham, officially launched the science programme today and spoke of the honour in Dublin hosting this prestigious event following an open competition in 2008. Prof. Cunningham in launching the programme gave an update on ESOF 2012 developments.

'Dublin is shaping up to be the best and brightest ESOF to date. Across the four days there will be over 120 science, careers and science-to-business sessions, with 400 plus speakers, including 23 keynotes speakers and five Nobel Laureate's, an interactive exhibition and busy marketplace and of course a lively social programme.

'Highlights include the keynote lecture by Jules Hoffmann, 2011 Joint Nobel Prize winner for Medicine, at the ESOF 2012 Opening Ceremony on 11th July, interview with James Watson, Policy Day on 13th July with the keynote address by Mire Geoghegan-Quinn, European Commissioner for Research, Innovation and Science, Director General of CERN, Rolf-Dieter Heurer's address and also a lecture by Jean-Jacques Dordain, Director General of the European Space Agency.'
