Life Sciences in the European Research Council - The Scientists’ Opinion Meeting in Paris

24.01.2003


The European Life Sciences Forum (ELSF), in conjunction with the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO), the Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS), and the Division of Basic and Engineering Sciences of UNESCO, is organising a meeting on the prospects of establishing a European Research Council (ERC) to support high quality basic research in Europe. The event will take place at the UNESCO - Fontenoy Building in Paris, France on the 19 February 2003. The meeting is open to all life scientists, journalists and interested parties.



The purpose of this meeting is to generate a scientific perspective on the possibility of establishing an ERC complementary to the EC Framework Programme and the National Research Council programmes.

It is important that scientists, as the primary users, get actively engaged in the discussions very early in the process. This meeting will present an excellent forum for doing so," says Luc van Dyck, Executive Co-ordinator of ELSF.

At the meeting, four Nobel Prize Laureates, Werner Arber, Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard, John Sulston and Rolf Zinkernagel, will give their personal opinions on the subject. Furthermore, there will be time to discuss the issue with three panels of prominent life scientists and representatives from national funding agencies, international organisations and the European Commission.

Participants should register at Participation is on a first-come, first-serve basis due to space constrain. There is no registration fee.

ELSF
The European Life Sciences Forum (ELSF) is a coalition of independent organisations representative or supportive of the life sciences, biotechnology and biomedical research communities in Europe. Its mission is to increase their visibility and impact in the public and policy-making arenas, to advance research and to promote the contribution of scientists to European society.

EMBO
The European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO), established in 1964, actively promotes biosciences in Europe. It does this by developing a strong transnational approach to molecular biology and identifying measures that support research and the training of scientists in this area. EMBO places the emphasis on scientific criteria in all its activities.

FEBS
The Federation of Biochemical Societies is one of the largest organisations in European life sciences, with more than 40.000 members distributed among 36 Constituent and 5 Associated Member Societies throughout Europe. Since it was founded in 1964, FEBS mission has been to promote, encourage and support biochemistry, molecular cell biology and molecular biophysics throughout Europe in a variety of different ways.

UNESCO
UNESCO is the United Nations organization for education, science, culture and communication issues. UNESCO is the only organization of the United Nations family with a mandate for the basic sciences. The Division for Basic and Engineering Sciences (BES) forms part of the Sciences Sector of UNESCO. BES is responsible for promoting research and training in mathematics, physics, chemistry, life sciences and their applied branches (e.g. biotechnologies), engineering sciences and interdisciplinary areas in science, as well as for fostering the exchange of knowledge in these fields.

Im Focus: Vorstoß ins Innere der Atome

Mit Hilfe einer neuen Lasertechnologie haben es Physiker vom Labor für Attosekundenphysik der LMU und des MPQ geschafft, Attosekunden-Lichtblitze mit hoher Intensität und Photonenenergie zu produzieren. Damit konnten sie erstmals die Interaktion mehrere Photonen in einem Attosekundenpuls mit Elektronen aus einer inneren atomaren Schale beobachten konnten.

Wer die ultraschnelle Bewegung von Elektronen in inneren atomaren Schalen beobachten möchte, der benötigt ultrakurze und intensive Lichtblitze bei genügend...

Im Focus: Attoseconds break into atomic interior

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.

In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...

Im Focus: Good vibrations feel the force

Eine Gruppe von Forschern um Andrea Cavalleri am Max-Planck-Institut für Struktur und Dynamik der Materie (MPSD) in Hamburg hat eine Methode demonstriert, die es erlaubt die interatomaren Kräfte eines Festkörpers detailliert auszumessen. Ihr Artikel Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, nun online in Nature veröffentlich, erläutert, wie Terahertz-Laserpulse die Atome eines Festkörpers zu extrem hohen Auslenkungen treiben können.

Die zeitaufgelöste Messung der sehr unkonventionellen atomaren Bewegungen, die einer Anregung mit extrem starken Lichtpulsen folgen, ermöglichte es der...

Im Focus: Good vibrations feel the force

A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.

By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...

Internationalem Forschungsteam gelingt wichtiger Schritt auf dem Weg zur Lösung von Zertifizierungsproblemen

Quantencomputer sollen künftig algorithmische Probleme lösen, die selbst die größten klassischen Superrechner überfordern. Doch wie lässt sich prüfen, dass der...
