ShowScience 2020 postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic

Above all, we hope that you and your loved ones are doing well in these complicated times.

Given the current health situation and the crisis related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we regret that we have to postpone the ShowScience 20 conference that was scheduled for this year to next year. Originally, this conference was to be held as usual in April, but the health situation prevented it and we hoped to be able to postpone it to the beginning of July, to take advantage of the « Nuit de la Science » Science Festival and also to stick it to the Science Me contest.

The Swiss authorities took decisions, cancelling most of the summer festivals and maintaining the ban on major events. As a result, all these events, scheduled for the beginning of July, must now be cancelled.

Moreover, the health situation and political decisions being different in each country, the organization of our conference is all the more complex.

We then plan to postpone our annual conference to next year, still in Geneva, I am confident that the financial partners we found for this year will agree to do so next year. This summer's science festivals will most likely be postponed for a year as well and we imagine that the ESF 20→21 conference could be stuck to these events.

So we'll certainly see you in the first week of July next year (and not in April) for our conference! Book this period already!

We wish you all the best and hope to see you all again next year despite this one year break!
