19–23 April 2010 European Energy Conference
The European Science Foundation, the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences, the European Materials Research Society and the European Physical Society share the conviction that fundamental scientific aspects of energy research and development will be substantially more efficient, with faster progress and a promotion of understanding through an interaction of their specialist disciplines; chemistry, material sciences and physics. The European scientific community has the potential to optimise interdisciplinary cooperation and communication in energy research. Therefore this newly launched European Energy Conference series will promote, consolidate and communicate this vitally necessary synergy. Although focused on energy research and technology, this conference series fully recognises the political,economic, social and environmental aspects of energy supply and consumption. Sustainable development is ultimately a social and community imperative, which can only be accomplished within this larger context.
