The EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF) is a biennial interdisciplinary pan-European general science meeting and debate involving researchers, politicians, innovators, industry, science journalists, and the media.

ESOF 2020 will be held in Trieste, a port since Roman times and a free port since the 18th century. The free port, located at the crossroads between Europe and Asia, is the symbol and embodiment of our motto, "Freedom for Science, Science for Freedom", which encourages the cross-border exchange of ideas, people, and new inventions. Just like trade in a harbour, science can only flourish in openness and diversity.
