Media Invite: European Marie Curie Conference 2005


’Making Europe more attractive for researchers’ - The Conference is organised jointly by European research centres, universities and industry, with the support of the European Commission and will take place in Tuscany (Pisa/Livorno), Italy, between 28th and 30th September 2005.

Press conference: 30th September 2005, 12:10-12:45 hrs in Livorno (Goldoni Theatre - centre of the Town)

The conference will be held:

28th, 29th September 2005 - Pisa (CNR Researcher Centre S. Cataldo)
30th September – Livorno (Goldoni Theatre - centre of the Town)

The focus will be on research career opportunities in Europe and how these could contribute to the Lisbon objectives by reinforcing the human potential in research.

A wide range of topics will be covered either as key-note addresses or workshops and debates:

• How to plan a research career
• Public understanding of science
• Employability of researchers – industry and academia
• Interdisciplinarity of research

In addition, there will be the opportunity to discuss the “European Charter for Researchers” and the “Code of conduct for the recruitment of researchers” followed by a discussion on their implementation and impact.

The European Marie Curie Conference 2005 “Making Europe more attractive for researchers” aims to provide a forum for Marie Curie Fellows from across Europe to exchange their scientific knowledge and mobility experiences. The event will also provide opportunities for the Fellows to learn of and discuss current and existing possibilities to enhance their career perspectives within the European Research Area. Conference participants will be able to develop communication and other complementary skills by, for example, presenting research results to non-specialist audiences, consisting of contemporary Marie-Curie Fellows from a broad range of disciplines and sectors, to policy makers and to journalists.

An additional aspect will be to exchange views with policy makers, administrators (from public and private research organisations), and the European Commission and industrial enterprises, on research career opportunities in Europe.

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
