Dublin City of Science 2012


In 2012, Dublin will stand proud as the European City of Science. A year-long programme of science events is scheduled, with thousands of people invited to attend the largest ever Euroscience Open Forum (ESOF) in  July of that year, in the recently opened and hugely impressive Convention Centre. ESOF is biennial conference where "research, technology and society meet". It is an interdisciplinary, pan-European meeting, held under the auspices of Euroscience, which aims to present the latest developments in science and technology, foster a dialogue on the role of science and technology in society and public policy as well as stimulate public awareness of, and interest in, science and technology. The event will bring together scientists and public policy officials to discuss the best of European science and to address all of the major global challenges, including Energy, Climate Change, Food and Health. It is expected that over 8,000 delegates will be present at the event. For more information visit their website: www.dublinscience2012.ie, download this leaflet or watch the short video below.
