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: Temperature-controlled fiber-optic light source with liquid core

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.

Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
