“It is a great privilege to host the 8th edition of ESOF in Toulouse. It will be a first for ESOF in France. The chosen motto: ”Sharing Science: towards new horizons” already sets the stage for this event. Toulouse is known for its aeronautics and space research but it has many more scientific facets to offer. Renowned for its warm welcoming and its ”art de vivre”, Toulouse has made accessing science to its citizens one of its main priorities. Toulouse is thus the perfect backdrop for ESOF, which is centred on interactions and dialogue between scientists, science policy makers, innovators and the general public. The Université Fédérale Toulouse Midi-Pyrénées with its 29 institutions of higher education and research and its 120 000 students, is proud to support this event in synergy with numerous private, public and institutional partners.
We look forward to welcoming everyone to the next ESOF in Toulouse.”
