Welcome to ESOF!
- This is Manchester science and in our university, we do it differently
The EuroScience Open Forum is here in Manchester and 4,500 people from all over the world are in the city this week for the latest in cutting-edge science that impacts almost every area of our daily lives.
From the keynote speakers such as Professor Brian Cox and Professor Sir Andre Geim, to sessions on medicine, climate change and the business of science, The University of Manchester is heavily involved in all aspects of ESOF - showing how we do things differently here.
With its theme of ‘science as revolution’ what better place to hold ESOF 2016 than Manchester – the birthplace of the world’s first industrial revolution
The ESOF champion is the University’s President and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Dame Nancy Rothwell who says: “It’s my great pleasure to welcome delegates, including science enthusiasts of all kinds to ESOF 2016 for what I’m certain will be a week of inspiring, engaging and challenging events. As champion of the Forum and a scientist myself, it was my goal to create a programme that I would personally want to attend, and I believe we’ve achieved that.
