Georgios Leontidis will be attending the ESOF 2014 conference together with the satellite training event which is organised for Marie Curie research Fellow from 19-20 of June, 2 days before the main conference.

The Euroscience Open Forum (ESOF) is Europe’s largest, general science meeting and is held in a leading Europe city every two years. ESOF 2014 will be hosted in Copenhagen from June 21-26, 2014.

ESOF incorporates a number of distinct stands of activity:

A Science programme of seminars, workshops and debates on the latest science and technology.
A Media programme to promote science communication.
A Careers programme for young researchers.
A Science-2-Business programme to link basic research with industrial applications.
An Exhibition to showcase the best of European public and private research.
A Science in the City programme to engage with the general public.
A Social programme to ensure that delegate experience is socially, culturally and intellectually invigorating.

The event is unique in the diversity of delegates who attend: it attracts top researchers from all sciences; business leaders; senior EU and government officials; and international scientific media. They come to discuss the best of European science and to address all of the current major global scientific challenges, including energy, climate, food and health.
