ESF presents 40 year archive to the Historical Archives of the European Union
The 40-year archive of the European Science Foundation (ESF) has been officially presented to the Historical Archives of the European Union (HAEU) in Florence, Italy. The HAEU will now make the ESF archive and resources available to the next generation of science researchers and policy makers. To coincide with the handover, a seminar was held in Florence to discuss the heritage of the ESF and the experience it can bring in meeting the future needs of European Research.
Dr. Jean-Claude Worms, ESF Chief Executive, said: “This transfer of the ESF’s archives will ensure that a corporate and scientific memory are preserved for the future and that the heritage of ESF itself, as a pioneer in building a common platform for science in Europe, can be understood. This is particularly significant as ESF refocuses its energies to meet the challenges and modern needs of the scientific research community today”.
The ESF promotes scientific developments through collaboration across the EU and aims at providing public and private clients with expert research support services derived from the organisation’s core technical and independent skill base.
