Presentation Transcript

  1. Annual Progress Conference 29-30 April 2014, Malta COST Domain - Biomedicine and Molecular Biosciences (BMBS) European network on applications of Atomic Force Microscopy to NanoMedicine and Life Sciences TD-1002

  2. Once more, everythingishere!

  3. The main objective of the COST Action is to further develop and transfer the biophysical achievements of Atomic Force Microscopy to NanoMedicine and clinical research. Is AFM useful in a clinical environment? If yes, when, where, and how?

  4. Evolution: In Krakow, on September 2012, MC decided to favor organizing specific Workshops under WG control.

  5. Imagerie High Resolution Imaging of Single Molecules Cellular Mechanics Dynamic Force Spectroscopy (DFS)

  13. During Year 3 we had a very good collaboration with the company NanoAndMore. They help us a lot providing free AFM tips allowing standardization experiments in several team involved in the Action.

  17. Leading a COST Action: an APORIA COST Action: Just burning EU money! {from COST office} The tangible outputs are preferred. Please, notice that correct use of COST tools (e.g. well organized meetings) per se is NOT a tangible output, but indeed a tool to achieve your results. COST aims at supportingCooperation in Science and Technology Cooperation: Joint operation or action COST does not fund research itself, but provides support for networking activities carried out within COST.

  18. LABORATORY In this room Please endeavour to emulate the first five letters and not the last seven. Thank you Clearly, we can not spend 4 years talking. Even in the best places in Europe.

  19. How is it possible to solve this issue? -1- Convincing people that Unitedwestand, dividedwefall. (in French: L’union fait la force). Most of the teams involved in a COST Action are not rich. Despite their interest in COST Action, most people are not willing to invest their own money in a collective and anonymous project. No personal credit. In science if you rare not the first you are nobody! Most of the team expect they will not spend their own funds but at the contrary are hoping to receive money for the join project. During my talk at the kickoff meeting, I explained that…..100 000 € : 40 = 2500 €

  20. -2- Giving the minimum for ACTING! Most of the participants are experimenters NOT theorists. For instance to perform experiments decided during a WG meeting, at least they need samples or chemicals, especially when they want to improve standardization by performing the same experiment in different laboratories. We strongly suggest to dedicate 10 - 15% of the total annual budget to allow this kind of expenses. This should be consider not as funding research (NO SALARIES, NO INVESTMENT which represent more than 80% of research activity) but helping people involved in a COST Action to do something else than just burning EU money and obtain relevant results.
