The 7th EIROforum School of Instrumentation 2021

ILL4-rdc-1 - Amphi Chadwick (ILL4)

ILL4-rdc-1 - Amphi Chadwick



The EIROforum School of Instrumentation (ESI) is a biennial event, jointly organized by the Instrumentation Working Group of the EIROforum organizations.

The objective of ESI is to teach the basic principles of instrumentation to young researchers (PhD students, postdocs) and engineers, mainly from the EIRO organizations. A fraction of the places are reserved for particularly talented (PhD) students from outside the EIRO organizations who work on instrumentation topics.

One day of the school is dedicated to our highlight topic : Handling crisis from pandemics to climate change with several guest-speakers to present their expertise and the contributions made by the scientific community in reaction to these crisis.

The sixth school (ESI 2019) was organized by the European Space Agency ESA and took place from 13-17 May 2019.

The scientific programme of ESI addresses all aspects of instrumentation related to the missions of the EIROforum organizations.

      ESA: Once explorers, always explorers Recent highlights from ESA's science and exploration programmes
      Convener: Mark McCaughrean (ESA)

        Once explorers, always explorers Recent highlights from ESA's science and exploration programmes 45m

        The European Space Agency's science and exploration missions have been much in the news in
        recent years, with exciting results from its Gaia Milky Way surveyor and other astronomical
        observatories, the decade-long adventure of the Rosetta comet-chasing spacecraft and its
        Philae lander, the ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter at the Red Planet, and the launch of the
        international BepiColombo and Solar Orbiter missions to Mercury and the Sun, respectively.
        In this talk, I'll give you some insight into these missions and others in ESA's fleet, their
        challenges and scientific discoveries, and tell you what's coming next as we continue our
        exploration of the solar system and the wider Universe beyond. These include a new mission
        to Jupiter and new space telescopes spanning the electromagnetic spectrum, as well as
        preparations for humans to return to the Moon and travel beyond.

        Professor Mark McCaughrean is the Senior Advisor for Science and Exploration at the European
        Space Agency. He is also responsible for communicating results from ESA’s astronomy, heliophysics,
        planetary, and exploration missions to the scientific community and wider public. After studying
        at the University of Edinburgh, he worked at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, astronomical
        institutes in Tucson, Heidelberg, Bonn, and Potsdam, and the University of Exeter before joining
        ESA in 2009. His scientific research focuses on the formation of stars and their planetary
        systems, and he is an Interdisciplinary Scientist for the NASA/ESA/CSA James Webb Space Telescope.
        He is the co-founder of Space Rocks, which celebrates space exploration and the art, music, and
        culture it inspires through public events and more.

        Environmentally Responsible Research at CERN 1h

        CERN has always taken environmental considerations into account when designing and implementing new infrastructures. However, environmental priorities have evolved significantly over the last two decades and CERN adapts its infrastructure and associated activities accordingly. Anticipating future environmental concerns, including the prevention of environmental incidents, is the motivation behind CERN’s vision for environmentally responsible research.

        This talk will present how CERN is organized to manage and predict environmental issues, in particular linked to energy, greenhouse gas emissions, water, biodiversity and waste. Furthermore, the talk will highlight the current and future projects aimed at limiting the impact of the Organization on the environment.

        Why people were on Facebook during your talk And other lessons in effective communication for scientists 25m

        Words can inspire, enlighten and motivate; but they can also confuse, frustrate and bore. In this short training, you’ll learn how to connect with your audience and explain ideas so that they’re not just understood, but have a meaningful impact. Skills covered are:

        • Adapting communication goals and strategy to your target audience
        • Talking with people who have no idea what you’re talking about
        • Techniques to keep your audience’s interest and attention
        • Structuring information into a compelling (and memorable) story
        • Staying sharp in high-stress situations

        Press, social media: how to deal with it. 25m

        Your research/project is finally out? Congratulations! But, let’s not forget that the research publication is not the end of the process, but the beginning of another one, also important: communication. Mastering communication, and all communications tools, especially media and digital tools, is now crucial to promote your research. This talk aims to give you some tips to optimise the promotion of your research/project in the press and on social media.
