Season’s greetings

I would like to take this opportunity of wishing all the readers of e-EPS a very happy holiday season, and extend my best wishes for the New Year 2014. I would also like to reflect a bit on 2013, and how the European Physical Society [EPS] has evolved over the past year.

It is no secret to scientists that the European Commission and the European Parliament have and will continue to shape science policy in Europe. This sets scientists a bit apart from other citizens in Europe, who see Europe as another bureaucratic layer. The EPS has fully embraced the challenge of constructively interacting with European policy makers, organising many point to point meetings with senior EC officials, and providing input into European science policy.
