April 23, 2014. 1st Call on SAPRO - Mobility Programme of the Slovak Academy of Sciences. Deadline: July 07, 2014.

The Slovak Academy of Sciences opened the 1st call on SASPRO mobility programme whose main objetive is to provide adequate and motivating conditions for incoming scientists to Slovakia, enabling them to develop career, gain new experience and establish international cooperation.

The programme is for 1-3 years of stay at all Institutes of the Slovak Academy of Sciences, and could be a good opportunity for young solar scientists. The salary for incoming scientists are atractives:

a) 1-5 years working experience after obtaining a PhD: €2860-3140/month.

b) 6-10 years work experience after obtaining a PhD: €3640-3900/month.

c) 11-14 years of working experience after obtaining a PhD: €4000-4280/month

plus mobility/travel allowance from €440-660/month depends on family obligations, and a contribution to research cost €400/800 (month) concerning non-laboratory/laboratory based research.

March 25, 2014. 1st SOLARNET School and Workshop Started in Wroclaw, Poland.

The 1st SOLARNET School "Introduction to Solar Physics" has been opened today in Wroclaw, Poland.

Under the auspices of the SOLARNET project, and organised by our partners from the University of Wroclaw, the School and Workshop are dedicated to PhD students and novel post-doctoral researchers. The aim of the School and Workshop is to expand the students knowledge on different Solar Physics topics.

The lectures and hands-on sessions will be carried out by experienced scientists, and will allow the 20 participating students to enrich their knowledge in Solar Physics.

There will be also some complementary lectures on practical aspects of the research work.

During the school the participants will have the opportunity to do a brief presentation on his/her scientific work.

Jan. 21, 2014. HORIZON 2020. Research Infrastructures: Developing the European infrastructures for 2020 and beyond.

Horizon 2020 will endow Europe with world-class research infrastructures that are accessible to all researchers in Europe and fully exploiting their potential for scientific advancement and innovation.

Three types of activity will be supported to enable excellent science in Europe.

  1. The first activities are targeted to the development of new world-class research infrastructures. Support will be provided for the implementation and operation of the research infrastructures listed on the ESFRI Roadmap. Support will cover the preparatory phase of new ESFRI projects, and the implementation and the operation phases of prioritised ESFRI projects. Further worldclass facilities will also be part of this action.
  2. The second set of activities aims at optimising the use of the national facilities by integrating them into networks and opening their doors to all European researchers. This is a continuity of the so-called Integrating Activities under FP7.
  3. The third action will support further deployment and development of ICT based e-infrastructures which are essential to enable access to distant resources, remote collaboration, and massive data processing in all scientific fields.
