End Date: 2007-04-06

Event Description:
Global Scientific Challenges: Perspectives from Young Scientists
An international conference celebrating 75 years of ICSU
4-6 April 2007
Lindau, Germany.

This conference will bring together approximatley two hundred young scientists from across the world, and from different disciplines, to discuss and debate some of the key challenges for science in the 21st century. The conference is designed to attract and stimulate the interests of those who will play a leading role in international research over future decades. Through the critical assessment of specific case studies and experiences, the conference will serve as a space for reflection on the future conduct of science in the context of a rapidly changing world.

The conference will serve as a forum for young scientists to:
• Exchange knowledge and experience with their peers in an interdisciplinary and intercultural setting
• Debate key issues at the interface between science and society
• Identify and discuss emerging obstacles and challenges for the scientist of tomorrow
It will provide a unique international networking opportunity that is quite distinct from the usual discipline or topic-focussed meeting.

Nouveaux contacts hongrois

Bonsoir à tous,
A priori le premier contact franco-hongrois lors de la semaine de la Science Ac avait bien marché, non?
Du coup, on va essayer de maintenir et renforcer les liens entre les mouvements de jeunes scientifiques des deux pays, vous êtes partants pour continuer?
Là, quelques nouveaux jeunes hongrois (cette fois-ci des jeunes filles aussi) du mouvement Kutato Diàk qui s'intéressent à la culture francophone vont nous rejoindre sur Ways... Certains l'ont d'ailleurs déjà fait au moment où j'écris!
Donc ne vous étonnez pas de voir des nouveaux noms apparaître!

Et puis, à vous de jouer pour les connaître et créer des échanges avec eux!

Bisous et bonne nuit
