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: Die schnellste lichtgetriebene Stromquelle der Welt

Die Stromregelung ist eine der wichtigsten Komponenten moderner Elektronik, denn über schnell angesteuerte Elektronenströme werden Daten und Signale übertragen. Die Ansprüche an die Schnelligkeit der Datenübertragung wachsen dabei beständig. In eine ganz neue Dimension der schnellen Stromregelung sind nun Wissenschaftler der Lehrstühle für Laserphysik und Angewandte Physik an der Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) vorgedrungen. Ihnen ist es gelungen, im „Wundermaterial“ Graphen Elektronenströme innerhalb von einer Femtosekunde in die gewünschte Richtung zu lenken – eine Femtosekunde entspricht dabei dem millionsten Teil einer milliardstel Sekunde.

Der Trick: die Elektronen werden von einer einzigen Schwingung eines Lichtpulses angetrieben. Damit können sie den Vorgang um mehr als das Tausendfache im...

Im Focus: The fastest light-driven current source

Controlling electronic current is essential to modern electronics, as data and signals are transferred by streams of electrons which are controlled at high speed. Demands on transmission speeds are also increasing as technology develops. Scientists from the Chair of Laser Physics and the Chair of Applied Physics at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) have succeeded in switching on a current with a desired direction in graphene using a single laser pulse within a femtosecond ¬¬ – a femtosecond corresponds to the millionth part of a billionth of a second. This is more than a thousand times faster compared to the most efficient transistors today.

Graphene is up to the job

Im Focus: LaserTAB: Effizientere und präzisere Kontakte dank Roboter-Kollaboration

Auf der diesjährigen productronica in München stellt das Fraunhofer-Institut für Lasertechnik ILT das Laser-Based Tape-Automated Bonding, kurz LaserTAB, vor: Die Aachener Experten zeigen, wie sich dank neuer Optik und Roboter-Unterstützung Batteriezellen und Leistungselektronik effizienter und präziser als bisher lasermikroschweißen lassen.

Auf eine geschickte Kombination von Roboter-Einsatz, Laserscanner mit selbstentwickelter neuer Optik und Prozessüberwachung setzt das Fraunhofer ILT aus Aachen.

Im Focus: LaserTAB: More efficient and precise contacts thanks to human-robot collaboration

At the productronica trade fair in Munich this November, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be presenting Laser-Based Tape-Automated Bonding, LaserTAB for short. The experts from Aachen will be demonstrating how new battery cells and power electronics can be micro-welded more efficiently and precisely than ever before thanks to new optics and robot support.

Fraunhofer ILT from Aachen relies on a clever combination of robotics and a laser scanner with new optics as well as process monitoring, which it has developed...

Im Focus: The pyrenoid is a carbon-fixing liquid droplet

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.
