Workshops, 1972-1981

MS. Eng. c. 2487

  • How to
There were small gatherings of specialists, meeting informally and by invitation to discuss a specific existing or proposed research topic. They were sometimes suggested by the PSAC or SAC as a means of clarifying the state of research and the appropriate level of involvement of EMBL; some were timed to coincide with meetings of the committee, whose members were in any case invited. They had an important function, in the early days in determining the EMBL research programme and subsequently in monitoring and diffusing information about its progress, and are therefore included here as an aspect of its committees and working groups.

Folder H.141. Membrane Workshop 18-22 October 1973.

Correspondence, invitations, arrangements, lists of those invited, programmes, Kendrew's notes of papers and discussions, November 1972 - November 1973.

Folder H.142. Detector Workshop "Optics and detectors for diffraction studies of biological systems", 17 October 1973.

Folder H.147. Proposed meeting on role of EMBL and responsibilities of the Director-General in the 1980s, referred to as "Konstanz III" on the model of earlier discussion meetings on the subject in 1969 and 1971. The proposal, put forward by D.L.D. Caspar and H. Buc, was discussed at the SAC meeting of April 1981.
