Media Invite: European Marie Curie Conference 2005

27.09.2005


’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: A Challenging European Research Project to Develop New Tiny Microscopes

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.

To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
