The European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) opens its scientific laboratories and facilities to people working in academia and research organisations, industry, small and medium enterprises (SMEs), and more in general to the public and private sector.
Similarly to the NFFA project in which we participate, the calls are for researchers who would like to use research infrastructures that are not available in their own centre, and are aimed to enhance the mobility and the collaboration within researchers and industries.
Marie Skłodowska Curie was born one 7 November 1867, 150 years ago. She is, probably, the most known woman in science. She is the only one that many people can identify and remember, the only one who won two Noble prizes: one in Physics (in 1903, for the discoveries on radioactivity) and one in Chemistry (in 1911, for the discovery of radium), and the first and only woman (for many years) who participated at the Solvay Conferences (the most famous one in1927, in the picture).
