ESF Exploratory Workshops

Please note that the Exploratory Workshops Scheme has come to an end in 2014.

No further calls will be launched.

Each year, ESF supported between 25-40 Exploratory Workshops across all scientific domains.

These small, interactive output oriented meetings were aimed at opening up new directions in research to explore emerging research fields with potential impact on new developments in science. The workshops, which usually lasted 1-3 days, had a wide participation from across Europe and involve mature scientists as well as young, independent researchers and scholars with leadership potential. The relatively small scale (in terms of people involved) provided an ideal platform for focus on the topic and for all participants to contribute to discussions and plan follow-up collaborative work.
