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.

Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers
Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...
Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.
At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...
3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects
A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...
Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.
To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
