EuroScience and the Fondazione Internazionale Trieste announced that the 2020 edition of the EuroScience Open Forum will be rescheduled to take place from 2 to 6 September in Trieste. The ESOF event, originally planned to take place from 5 to 9 July, has been postponed as a consequence of the Coronavirus pandemic and the exceptional safety and prevention measures undertaken in Italy and in other countries around the world.
The rescheduling will be accompanied by an update and revision of the ESOF programme. Digital tools, such as teleconferencing for session delivery, will be made available, and session content related to issues concerning public health and the environment, currently at the heart of scientific, political and public debate worldwide, will be amplified. ESOF will maintain its commitments with the sponsors and with the companies involved in the event.
In this new scenario the Science in the City festival, originally scheduled from June 27 to July 11, will be less concentrated in time and space, also to meet the new needs of public health, and will be extended for a longer duration from July and for several months, not only in Trieste but in different places of Friuli Venezia Giulia.
