ESOF 2010 | The strengths and weaknesses of EU research

Logo: EuroScience

By Steffen Meyer and Lukas Schürmann

Carl Johann Sundberg of the Karolinska Institute in Sweden is one of the founding fathers of the EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF). His aim was to gather together researchers from different disciplines for a knowledge-sharing session on European research. And he was successful: many academics see ESOF as an excellent opportunity to meet colleagues and get new ideas for their own work. But ESOF has its critics: before attending the meeting in Turin, Kurt Wüthrich, winner of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry from the Scripps Research Institute in California, had not heard of ESOF and thinks it is overloaded: too many people talking about research who have never done any themselves.
ESOF has established itself despite prominent criticism: in 2012, Europe’s biggest science meeting will take place for the fifth time in the Irish capital, Dublin.
