The European Physical Society [EPS] is a forum for physicists to exchange ideas and representing national, scientific, and topical interest. EPS publishes journals, organizes conferences and promotes Physics in Europe. Created in 1968, the EPS is a not for profit association of physicists for physics.
The EPS plays an important role in enhancing communication among physicists in Europe, and in bringing major issues in physics and science to the attention of the general public and policy makers. Over 3,000 individuals, 41 national physical societies, and 50 universities, research laboratories and companies active in physics research make up the EPS membership. Together, they elaborate the strategic vision for the EPS, and for the European physics community. Representing the European physics community from all points of view, from science to policy, is one of the main roles of the EPS.
The Executive Committee, comprised of 13 elected representatives is the main governing body of the EPS. Strategic priorites are established by EPS Council. The implantation of EPS activities is supported by the Secretariat, based in Mulhouse, France.
Involvement in PATHWAY
The EPS is mainly involved in the clustering and networking tasks including dissemination duties.
The EPS has a large network thanks to its membership, especially the 41 member national physical societies. Information about the Pathway project can be disseminated easily by mailing to its members or through the publications EPN (25000 copies per issue), or its newsletter e-EPS.
