Dear Readers,

Since its creation, the European Physical Society [EPS] and its members have been at the forefront of physics research and international collaboration. Our reputation is built, first and foremost, on our credibility as physicists. While many EPS initiatives have spurred European, and international, activities and policy initiatives (such as WYP2005, EPL and EMSPS, to cite some examples) the EPS has remained an actor behind the scenes…

Dear Readers,
 

Good news for the EPS!

Note also that the 2011 additions have only been counted up to 24 June – thus, further recruitment in 2011 is, in principle, still possible. The total number of IMs today exceeds 3200…
