At ESOF meetings leading scientists, researchers, young researchers, journalists, business people, entrepreneurs and innovators, policy makers, science and technology communicators and the general public from all over the world discuss new discoveries and debate the direction that research is taking in the sciences, humanities and social sciences.
Nature Publishing Group (NPG) is a publisher of high impact scientific and medical information in print and online. Throughout all its businesses NPG is dedicated to serving the scientific and medical communities and the wider scientifically interested general public. NPG has supported ESOF since its very first meeting in 2004.
Similar to the 2012 edition of meeting, NPG is funding the Nature Travel Grant Scheme for journalists to attend ESOF2014 with the aim to increase the impact of ESOF.
