What is #SciencesDebout ? I guess most of the readers know what the French movement NuitDebout (Standing Night) is. If not, let’s just say that after a demonstration against a law draft about working conditions, a few tens of people decided to remain on the Republique place for the night. […]

#SciencesDebout, an other path for scientific outreach ?

After 42 years of doing atomic physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, and 16 years as an MIT administrator, Marc Kastner knows intimately both the value of basic research—and how to convince rich people to foster its growth at a […]

Paris 6- UPMC,  lucky to learn the concept of protein allostery from a great professor, Daniel Blangy. Years before, he was one of the PhD student of Jacques Monod at Institut Pasteur, […]

Few days ago, I watched this video in my Facebook where a collection of everyday people is shown walking in the street with a guide to direct them because they were in great danger, compulsively focused to the screen of their smartphones. It reminds me that during the same day, like every day, I was […]

    With Panama papers, we got a clear demonstration how the human societies are spoilt worldwide by the obsession of top-down spheres for compulsive self-enrichement and nepotism. The huge work developed by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists will undoubtedly mark our history and hopefully animate one for all the […]

Lessons from Panama Papers

Read EuroScientist’s last issue about Science and the Common Good! Towards new ways to use and to make Science closer to the needs of our tired world!

Today, we think that an ideal occasion has arisen to make our protest more visible – we propose to read it at the Bologna Ministerial Conference, which will be held in […]

Time to sign the Open Letter

Measure the impact of scientific research of a country is of great interest to policy makers in order to define both the amount of its spending and its priorities. To study in a systematic way the scientific impact of nations, using simple and relevant indicators,  data on the number of articles […]

Diversification of nations research systems

Last time I spoke with Mariano Gago, it was a few weeks after we published the open letter “They have chosen ignorance”. It ended up being a one-hour phone-call! He was horrified by the recent research cuts in Portugal. He was also very concerned about the fact that the human […]

Sad news: Mariano Gago is dead!
