Become a voluntee at ESOF

We are currently looking for both Danish and English speaking volunteers for the festival and the conference.

Euroscience Open Forum (ESOF) is Europe’s largest, general science meeting and is held in a leading European city every second year. ESOF2014 is hosted by Copenhagen and takes place
June 21-26, 2014. It will be both a conference and a festival.

The ESOF conference aims to:

  • Showcase the latest advances in science and technology;
  • Promote a dialogue on the role of science and technology in society and public policy;
  • Stimulate and provoke public interest, excitement and debate about science and technology

The public event and festival, Science in the City is an important and visible part of ESOF2014. Science in the City is a free festival for families, students and everyone who is curious and can’t help wondering. Under the main theme; Science Building Bridges, the festival aims to bring researchers, delegates, entrepreneurs, students, and the general public together to share the news and the mysteries of science.

Tasks as a volunteer

As a volunteer you become part of a huge event where it is expected that up to 50,000 people will attend the festival and 4,500 will take part of the conference.
