PRESS RELEASE                                          MARCH 15TH 2005

New Research. New Technology. New Thinking.
Euroscience Open Forum 2006 launches call for proposals 

The 2nd Euroscience Open Forum (ESOF) will take place July 15th-19th 2006 in Munich, Germany. Scientists, journalists and experts from politics, industry and research can now submit proposals for scientific sessions and outreach activities online at www.esof2006.org until June 15th 2005.

The organisers of ESOF2006 now welcome contributions to the Forum's programme. The call for proposals is open from March 15th until June 15th 2005. Proposals for scientific sessions and outreach activities can be submitted online at www.esof2006.org. To stimulate inspiring submissions, 18 broad themes have been selected. These themes highlight current developments in research and science policy and set the framework for an outstanding conference.

ESOF is a pan-European scientific meeting staged to provide an interdisciplinary forum for open dialogue, debate and discussion as well as showcase European achievements right across the scientific spectrum. Through ESOF, researchers and scientists, as well as journalists and the general public are provided with an adequate platform for exchanging views and discussing the challenges and consequences of scientific developments around the world. 

ESOF was successfully launched in Stockholm, Sweden in 2004. It attracted 1800 visitors from 67 countries. Founder of ESOF is the Organisation Euroscience, a grass-roots scientific organisation founded in 1997 with over 2,000 members in 40 countries. 

In order to promote dialogue between science and society, ESOF2006 will be jointly held with the Wissenschaftssommer (German national science week) in Munich. The Wissenschaftssommer is organised annually by Wissenschaft im Dialog, an initiative of the Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft and other German science-funding organisations. 

In its work ESOF2006 is supported by a number of committees. The Steering Committee is chaired by Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Heckl, General Director of the Deutsches Museum in Munich. Host of the conference is Wissenschaft im Dialog gGmbH. ESOF2006 is to date generously supported by two initiating partners, the Robert Bosch Stiftung and the Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft.
