It is held every other year, hosted in one of the major scientific cities of Europe, which bears for the ESOF period the title “European City of Science”.

The 2020 edition of ESOF will take place in Trieste and will be organised by FIT – Trieste International Foundation for Progress and Freedom and the organisation behind the ESOF conferences, EuroScience, with its headquarters in Strasbourg.
