After Stockholm (2004), Munich (2006), Barcelona (2008) and Turin (2010), Dublin - Ireland’s capital, city rich with cultural and artistic heritage, steeped with history and vibrant with youthful energy-, has been chosen to host the Euroscience Open Forum (ESOF) 2012 event. To celebrate this prestigious, international event in Dublin, the City of Science 2012, a programme of science-related events and activities, will run throughout the year across the island of Ireland.
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 stimulate and provoke public interest, excitement and debate about science and technology.

This year's programme will incorporate a number of distinct streams: 20 + key-note sessions; a science programme of seminars, workshops and debates on the latest research; a Science to Business Programme to link basic research with business and industrial applications; a careers programme showcasing career opportunities in Europe and beyond for all levels of researchers at all stages of their careers; a Science in the City programme to provide scientific interchange opportunities between ESOF2012 delegates and Dublin citizens; a media programme to promote science communication; and, an exhibition to showcase the best of European academic, public and private research.
