Science and research policy

The European Physical Society [EPS] defends the position that long-term investments in research funding and scientific infrastructure are essential for Europe's economic, social and cultural development.

EPS Advisory Board on Science Policies

The EPS wants to become more efficient in interacting with Brussels and for this purpose has opened an Office in Brussels with a consultant for EU affairs. In addition the EPS Executive Committee has agreed to create an Advisory Board on Science Policies (ABSP) whose members will be consulted to provide scientific advice on specific policy issues. This board will enhance the links between EPS and the EU Commission by building a dialog between the EPS and EU policy makers, and interacting with the members of the High Level Group of scientists of the EC’s Scientific Advice Mechanism (SAM).  

The below is the list of confirmed members of the ABSP:

  • Prof. Sydney Gales (Paris, FR)
  • Prof. Muhsin Harakeh (KVI, NL)
  • Prof. Claudine Hermann (Paris, FR)
  • Prof. Sir Peter Knight (London, UK)
  • Prof. Carlo Rizzuto, (Trieste, IT)
  • Prof. Karl Friedrich Ziegahn (KIT Karlsruhe, DE)
