In 2022 Leiden will host the Euroscience Open Forum (ESOF), Europe’s biggest multidisciplinary scientific meeting. In addition to organising the ESOF, Leiden will also be the European City of Science for the entire year.
Leiden University, the Municipality of Leiden and The Hague Convention Bureau joined forces to organise the conference and bring it to Leiden. On 29 June both Leiden and the Italian city of Trieste presented their proposals for organising the Euroscience Open Forum (ESOF) in 2020.

On this basis the Board decided to appoint both cities ‘European City of Science’: ESOF 2020 will be organised by Trieste, and Leiden will organise this prestigious conference in 2022.
