Brev fra EMS-presidenten om kutt i Horizon 2020

E-post Skriv ut PDF

Dear Presidents of the EMS Member Societies,

as many of you have probably noticed, the new European Commission decided to start its term by the project called “Investment Plan for Europe”, injecting some 16 billion euro into the European economy with the idea to revive it and the hope for a huge multiplication effect. The goal is noble, of course, but the question is where the money will be taken from. Unfortunately, according to the Commission intentions, the Horizon 2020 program  should contribute 2.7 billion, and even two of its chapters considered as front drivers of excellent research in Europe, the European  Research Council and the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Program are supposed to be taxed by 221 and 100 million, respectively. Other chapters should contribute also with one exception - following a strange administrative logic the chapter called "Access to Risk Finance" is left untouched. Details of  the plan can be found at ec.europa.eu/priorities/jobs-growth-investment/plan/documents/index_en.htm

Even if those sums are a relatively small part of the whole package, the effect would be significant. For instance, the ERC would in this way lose some 150 grants which amounts to roughly one half of a full call; note that the money is taken for the seven-year budget but the cuts will be concentrated to a much short period so they will hurt indeed. Aware of the implications, various European organizations raise their voices in protest to this decision, among others Academia Europaea, League of European Research Universities (LERU), or EuroScience, to name just a few. Recently the Initiative for Science in Europe (ISE), of which the EMS is a member, suggested to European researchers to tell their opinion to their elected representatives. The plan cannot take effect without being approved by the European Parliament whose members are there to represent interests of their constituencies. The campaign is decribed at http://www.no-cuts-on-research.eu/emailcampaign/ and we think it is worth to bring it to attention of your society members.

«Foreningens formaal er at fremme studiet av de matematiske videnskaber 
ved at samle norske matematikinteresserte.»

 

 

Norsk matematisk forening er en organisasjon primært for norske matematikere og matematikkinteresserte.

Foreningen ble stiftet i 1918 av Poul Heegaard, Arnfinn Palmstrøm, Richard Birkeland og Carl Størmer. Sistnevnte var foreningens første formann. I dag teller foreningen mer enn 250 medlemmer. Norsk matematisk forening gir ut nyhetsbrevet INFOMAT. Har du tips, så send e-post til infomat at matematikkforeningen.no. Sammen med nordiske søsterorganisasjoner står NMF også bak utgivelsen av det populærvitenskapelige magasinet Normat (som du får rabatt på som NMF-medlem) og fagtidsskriftet Mathematica Scandinavica.

Baltic Way 2009, norsk lagVi ønsker alltid nye medlemmer velkommen; se denne lenken om hvordan du kan bli medlem av foreningen. Vi har samarbeid med andre matematiske foreninger, blant andre European Mathematical Society, London Mathematical Society og American Mathematical Society, der våre medlemmer kan få medlemskap til redusert kontingent.

Foreningen arrangerer hvert år Abelkonkurransen for studenter i videregående skole, vi administrerer Abelsymposiet og vi deler ut Abelstipendier til unge lovende norske matematikere.  I 2009 arrangerte foreningen Baltic Way, en matematikk-konkurranse for lag fra Norden, Baltikum og Nord-Tyskland.
Norge er et land med gode tradisjoner i matematikk, og matematikkforeningen er stolt av å kunne bidra til å holde tradisjonen i hevd. Blant de mest kjente norske matematikerne gjennom tidene er Niels Henrik Abel, Sophus Lie og Atle Selberg. En viktig bidragsyter til våre aktiviteter er Abelstyret.
Hver vinter arrangerer foreningen "Ski og matematikk", vanligvis på Rondablikk høyfjellshotell. Der hygger man seg med forelesninger i matematikk og skiturer i flott fjellterreng.  Vi støtter også andre arrangementer som Konferanse for matematikkstudenter i Norge (KoMiN).
