Looking for something fun and interesting on a Friday evening? Come to the European Researchers' Night (NIGHT)!
The NIGHT is a Europe-wide event taking place in many cities and countries every year on the last Friday of September. If you are keen on learning more about science in an easy and entertaining way, don't miss this opportunity to discover scientific experiments, visit labs 'behind the scenes', do a science quiz or take part in a flashmob for science.
Have a look at the European Researchers' Night website , and discover the event closest to you (contact details of local event organisers will be made available soon).
When: 26 September 2014. If you are a researcher and want to be involved, contact your local event organisers, available on the NIGHT website .
NIGHT is an EU initiative funded under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions to enhance the public profile of researchers and to stimulate interest in research careers, especially amongst young people.
Find out more about the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions on the MSCA website (#MSCA) and on Facebook
The 2014 Fields Medals were awarded to four outstanding mathematicians, of whom two are grantees of the European Research Council (ERC): Prof. Artur Avila (Brazil-France), an ERC Starting grant holder since 2010, and Prof. Martin Hairer (Austria) has been selected for funding under an ERC Consolidator grant in 2013. They received the prize respectively for their work on dynamical systems and probability, and on stochastic analysis. The other two laureates are Prof. Manjul Barghava (Canada-US) and Prof. Maryam Mirzakhani (Iran). The Medals were announced at the International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM) taking place from 13 - 21 August in Seoul, South Korea.

The search for ASEAN's best science slammer 2014 has begun! EURAXESS Links ASEAN is once again looking for ASEAN's best science slammer. Researchers of any age, nationality and discipline, currently conducting research in ASEAN, are invited to submit a short video of their research for the chance to get shortlisted for the live slam finals. Five finalists will battle it out for the title of "EURAXESS Science Slammer ASEAN 2014" in the live slam to be held in Bangkok, Thailand on 13 November 2014. The first prize is a free trip to Europe.
Watch what last year's champion has to say in this wonderful video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJlpFY8b1TE
Dr Phanramphoei Frantz, a virologist working at BIOTEC in Thailand became the very first EURAXESS science slammer ASEAN in last year's competition. Dr Frantz won over the audience with her rap song "Pigs don't cry" about her work at the Virology and Cell Technology Lab at BIOTEC where she develops a vaccine to combat Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus. Dr Frantz bagged the first prize of a free trip to Europe. She has since been awarded a Franco-Thai Fellowship and is currently conducting research at the Institut Pasteur in Paris, France. The second place went to Abhijeet Patra, a doctoral candidate with the NUS Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Institute in Singapore.
Submission is possible between 1 June and 15 September 2014 via the network's website scienceslam.euraxess.org
To update the information already published on 18 April 2013, the ERC Scientific Council disclosed some supplementary information at this stage. The following updated calendar represents the latest planning, but may be subject to change in future, for example, if there are delays in the legislative process. It is therefore provided by the ERC Scientific Council on a purely indicative basis:
Expected publication of the provisional schedule for the new calls (ERC Work Programme 2014): December 2013
Likely submission deadlines of new ERC calls throughout 2014:
- No calls for Synergy grants in 2014
- Starting grants; end of March 2014
- Consolidator grants; end of May 2014
- Advanced grants; end of October 2014
- Proof of Concept grants (one call with two deadlines in 2014); likely to close beginning of April 2014 and beginning of October 2014
A more detailed calendar will be communicated as soon as the 'Horizon 2020' programme (and the ERC annual work programme 2014) will be finally adopted.
The ERC will do its utmost to make the transition between the old and the new framework programmes as smooth as possible and to provide the necessary continuity for the research community.
No further information is available at this stage regarding the calendar, the budget or the rules of the next calls for proposals.
