HORIZON 2020 LOGO.jpg-1

The Work Programme 2018-2020 of Horizon 2020, the EU's Research and Innovation funding programme, was launched by the European Commission on  October 27, 2017

Horizon 2020 is the largest multinational programme dedicated to research & innovation and it is "open to the world". This means that researchers, universities, research organisations, companies and non-governmental organisations from across the globe can apply to participate in the activities of the Work Programme carried out mainly through calls for proposals.

The calls of the Work Programme launched today represent a major investment of €30 billion and they offer an extraordinary occasion for the scientific community and innovators in third countries to tap on the opportunities offered by Horizon 2020 working together with counterparts from the EU and countries associated to Horizon 2020 in areas of mutual interest.

In addition to this general opening, in this Work Programme, international cooperation in research and innovation has been strengthened through the inclusion of a list of 30 flagship initiatives with specific countries in areas of mutual benefit worth over €1billion.

10TH MEETING OF GROUP OF SENIOR OFFICIALS ON GLOBAL RESEARCH INFRASTRUCTURES

The 10th Meeting of Group of Senior Officials (GSO) on Global Research Infrastructures (GRI) will be held in the Russian Federation on October 9-12, 2017:
National Research Centre «Kurchatov Institute» (NRC KI, Moscow, ), Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR, Dubna) and the Petersburg Nuclear Physics Institute named by B.P. Konstantinov (PNPI, Gatchina).

The organiser of the event is the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation.

The official language is English.

The GSO proactively works to identify opportunities for international collaboration among Research Infrastructures that are proposed by its members: it has identified five Case Studies and has carried out an analysis on their potential as Research Infrastructures for global collaboration.

Since March 2011, the GSO has been chaired once by the European Commission, the United Kingdom and Australia, and twice by South Africa, Germany and Italy. The current Chair is Italy; forthcoming host is the Russian Federation for the 10th GSO Meeting in October 2017 in Dubna, followed by the United States of America in Spring 2018 and the United Kingdom in Autumn 2018.

THE SEVENTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON CRYSTALLOPHYSICS AND DEFORMATION BEHAVIOR OF ADVANCED MATERIALS


NATIONAL UNIVERSITY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY MISIS
MOSCOW, OCTOBER 02- 05, 2017
http://www.crystal.misis.ru/


ROLE OF MEGASCIENCE PROJECTS IN PROMOTING  RUSSIAN TECHNICAL UNIVERSITIES AND RESEARCH CENTERS IN GLOBAL EDUCATION AND RESEARCH AREA
 SESSION, OCTOBER 03

Research Infrastructures are one of the most efficient tools to facilitate international cooperation in science, technology and education.
They offer high quality services to Users from different countries, engaging young people, attracting new Users and preparing the next generation of researchers.
On the other hand, as scientific research facilities become larger, more complex, and require more resources the joint effective construction and operation of Research Infrastructures has become a key priority and needs greater coordination and collaboration on a global scale.
Innovative research in nearly all scientific fields today requires complex facilities and cutting-edge technologies. Efficient Mega science facilities enable the greatest discoveries in science and technology, attract researchers from around the world and build bridges between research communities. They allow the training of researchers and facilitate innovation and knowledge sharing.

INTERNATIONAL X-RAY FREE ELECTRON LASER XFEL INAUGURATED

The largest and most powerful X-ray laser in world was opened in Hamburg on the 1-st of September.
The machine can generate ultrashort X-ray flashes 27,000 times per second, with a brilliance that is a billion times higher than the best conventional X-ray radiation sources.
With the help of specialized instruments, these X-rays enable completely new insights into the atomic details and extremely fast processes of the nanoworld.
Other applications lie in materials science with the development of new materials and substances, in the optimization of storage media for computers and the investigation of extreme matter conditions, such as those found within exoplanets.
