    Dear ESF web site user,

    This is the latest update on what's new on the European Science
    Foundation's web site. [www.esf.org]

    Eurocores - programme Coordinators The ESF has established an innovative
    collaborative funding mechanism within Europe to promote high quality
    research organised at a European level and funded by the ESF Member
    Organisations. The EUROCORES Scheme will be supported by the EU Sixth
    Framework Programme.

    EURYI: Call for proposals - European Young Investigator Awards The European
    Union Research Organisations Heads of Research Councils (EuroHORCS),
    wishing to contribute to the building of the European Research Area decided
    to co-ordinate some of their activities in creating the European Young
    Investigator (EURYI) Awards . The aim of EURYI Awards will be to enable and
    encourage outstanding young researchers from all over the world, to work in
    a European environment for the benefit of the development of European
    science and the building up of the next generation of leading European

    Opportunities for outstanding young scientists in Europe to create an
    independant research team In Europe, regional, national and international
    institutions, as well as private foundations, have become aware that we all
    have to take action to foster the new generation of scientists to
    strengthen European and national R&D and to build the European Research
    Area. The aim must be for Europe to be able to attract the best scientists
    in the world, with no restrictions as to origin or nationality.

    EURYI awards: A new opportunity to do science in Europe Europe has entered
    the competition to hire the best young scientists in the world. The
    European Young Investigator awards (EURYI), offered by the research
    organisations of 14 European countries to 25 young and outstanding
    scientists from any country in the world, allow to create their own team in
    Europe, and this in any domain of knowledge.

    ESF Scientific Programmes - PESC‘s Call for Outline Proposals 2003 The ESF
    Standing Committee for Physical and Engineering Sciences (PESC) has
    launched its annual Call for "outline" proposals for ESF Scientific
    Programmes. Proposals should address NOVEL SCIENCE in one or more of the
    following fields: chemistry, physics, mathematics, information sciences and
    technology, fundamental engineering sciences, materials sciences and
    engineering. Multi-disciplinary proposals based in these areas but also
    involving fields within the remit of other ESF Standing Committees are also
    welcome. The deadline for receipt of proposals is 31 October 2003.

    The European Science Foundation appoints Alexandre Tiedtke Quintanilha as
    new chairman of the Standing Committee for Life and Invironmental Sciences
    (LESC) The new LESC chair Alexandre Tiedtke Quintanilha was born in
    Lourenço Marques (now Maputo) Mozambique in 1945. B.Sc. (Hons) in
    theoretical physics in 1967. He completed his Ph.D. in solid state physics
    in 1972 under the supervision of Frank Nabarro, one of the world experts in
    dislocation theory. During 1971, he spent a year at the University of Paris
    (Orsay) in the Laboratoire de Physique des Solides headed by Jacques
    Friedel, but associated with the group of P.G. de Gennes.

    ESF Syllabus for Clinical Investigator Training - a recent initiative from
    European Science Foundation, ESF ESF wishes to introduce this Syllabus to
    help create a culture of scientifically knowledgeable physicians:
    physicians who, in view of the EU Clinical Trial Directive, would be able
    to critically evaluate study proposals, to conduct studies according to
    Good Clinical Practice (GCP), and to conclude and report valid data as
    rapid and safe as possible. The way to achieve this is through education
    and training, and ESF is now setting the scientific aim for this.

    EuroCLIMATE - Call for outline proposals Following agreement with ESF
    Member Organisations in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic,
    Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, and
    Sweden, the European Science Foundation is launching a first Call for
    Outline Proposals for research projects to be executed under the EUROCORES
    programme EuroCLIMATE. The deadline for submission of outline proposals is
    31 October 2003.
