Impact Assessment of the Euroscience Open Forum (ESOF) 2008
Euroscience mandated econcept Inc. to assess the impact of the pan-European and interdisciplinary conference ESOF2008, where Research, Technology and Society meet.
Since 2004 Euroscience organises biannual conferences called Euroscience Open Forum (ESOF). The aim of these conferences is to provide both the European and the international science and business communities an open platform for debate and communication. Based on the experience of the first three ESOF (2004, 2006 and 2008), Euroscience asked econcept Inc. to assess the impact of ESOF2008 on the individual participants. In addition to an online survey of the participants, econcept Inc. conducted face-to-face interviews with participants of ESOF2008 in the course of ESOF2010 in Turin.
