The European Young Researchers Award

The European Young Researchers Award is granted since 2010 to researchers demonstrating outstanding research performance and leadership. It aims to inspire early stage researchers to incorporate a European dimension and perspective into their research. The Award is granted each year; in odd years, the prize is dedicated to PhD candidates, and in even years to post-doctoral fellows. The Award consists of a Certificate, waiving the participation fee to ESOF, a grant to cover travel and accommodation for the stay in the ESOF city and a two years’ free EuroScience membership. ESOF 2018 will be held in Toulouse from 9 to 14 July.

Open consultation on Mathematics for Horizon 2020 next Work Programme

The European Commission is gathering ideas on Mathematics for Excellence in Science in Horizon 2020 to inform the future work programme with innovative mathematical content. The potential of mathematics was already explored in a very successful online consultation which provided excellent food for thought for a workshop held in November 2014. The conclusions of that workshop were collected in a report.
The present consultation open to all mathematicians till 30 April offers an important chance to support the creation of a so far missing niche for mathematical research in the future work programmes in Horizon 2020.
