Unique new platform offers European scientific community a common voice

28.10.2004


On 25 October 2004, the Initiative for Science in Europe (ISE) was officially launched at an ISE conference in Paris, France.
The launch marked the coming together of some 35 European scientific organizations to structure and give greater weight to the input of the scientific community into science policy-making and to promote the European Research Council (ERC).

ISE is an independent and informal platform for organizations committed to the scientific and technological development of Europe. It provides a common forum to advocate independent scientific advice in European policy-making and stimulate the involvement of European scientists in the design and implementation of European science and technology policy.


ISE now includes organizations such as the European Life Sciences Forum (ELSF), the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO), the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), the European Physical Society (EPS), the European Science Foundation (ESF), the European Southern Observatory (ESO), the European University Association (EUA), EuroScience, the Federation of European Biochemical Societies and many more representative of all scientific disciplines ranging from mathematics and chemistry to the social sciences and humanities. ISE membership is open to all European organizations.

Im Focus: Ultrafast snapshots of relaxing electrons in solids

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!

When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...

Im Focus: Quantum Sensors Decipher Magnetic Ordering in a New Semiconducting Material

For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.

Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
