The birthplace of the industrial revolution, Manchester, UK., is abuzz with activity for this year's European Science Open Forum (ESOF.) This year's conference will run from the 24th to the 27th of July, and we'll be right there, to make sure you can see what's happening.
Wait....what's this all about?
The EuroScience Open Forum is a huge event held every two years that brings researchers, policymakers, and regular folks together to promote science and innovation. This year, Manchester will host a broad range of workshops, events, and contests.
The whole thing is ran by EuroScience, a non-profit grassroots organization of researchers. This year, more than four thousand scientists and stakeholders from all across the world will attend the events -- if you're passionate about science, there's no better place to be right now.
Currently in its seventh edition, under the motto "Science as Revolution," this year's ESOF encourages attendees to get their hands dirty and take on ideas from all fields of science. We'll be talking about urban farming, gravitational waves, quantum simulations, social media and everything in between. It's a fantastic opportunity for everyone to see not just the science itself, but how it impacts all our lives.
