What is RSS?
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a service which delivers the latest news and features directly to you without you having to click from site to site. Not all websites provide RSS but it is quickly growing in popularity.
How can I use RSS?
You need to install on your PC a news reader which will allow you to subscribe to the RSS feeds you want. Simply visit the sites which are of interest to you and you will notice the increasing use of RSS buttons that indicate which news feeds are available from the site for viewing in your news reader.
Check the list below. If you click on the RSS buttons and if your browser does not natively support RSS, you will see the XML code of the news feed which is not much use to you, but if you copy the URL shown on the right, and use it to set up a new subscription in your news reader, then you will be able to view the latest news in the category you've selected.
If you prefer to be informed by email about

If you wish to receive more specific "made to measure" information such as e.g. specialised scientific vacancies or press releases on specific subjects, you should provide us with your personal profile and your interests.
