Euromar is a subdivision of Groupement Ampere, that organizes annual meetings on the subject of Magnetic Resonance, usually in the first week of July. The meetings are held in different locations within Europe, and cover all aspects of Magnetic Resonance, including NMR, ESR and MRI. This page introduces Euromar, with links to more detailed information.
Prior to 2005, there had been three large European magnetic resonance meetings:
The European Experimental NMR Conference (EENC), a body loosely inspired by the very successful ENC held annually in the USA, which met every 2 years; the Ampere Congress, which held meetings every two years and focused more on physics oriented aspects of magnetic resonance; and the international meeting organized by the British NMR Discussion Group in alternation with EENC, which focused more on chemical aspects. It was agreed to merge the three meetings together and hold a major single annual congresses covering all aspects of magnetic resonance. This unified conferences were to be called Euromar, standing for EUROpean MAgnetic Resonance. Euromar is a subdivision of Groupement Ampere, which means that its finances are held in an Ampere account, and Euromar reports to Ampere. Each EUROMAR conference participant becomes a member of the Ampère society, with the Ampère membership fee included in the conference registration.
In the month of November 2001 the Grupo Especializado de Resonancia Magnética Nuclear (GERMN) of the Real Sociedad Española de Química (RSEQ) was created.
This group aims, within the RSEQ, to bring together specialists in this field in order to:
promote and enhance the development of research and teaching in any area of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance.
facilitate the dissemination of results at national and international level by holding scientific meetings, conferences, seminars, publications and other activities.
strengthen scientific relations among its members.
allow scientific relations with similar groups in other countries.
Following the directions of the Group and as it was exposed in the 1st General Assembly of October 2002, the GERMN celebrates its Biennial Meeting during even years, while odd years organizes other activities. These activities will focus primarily in holding a scientific conference on specific aspects of NMR application. Moreover, the GERMN is in charge of the organization of the Advanced NMR School “Manuel Rico” in Jaca (also in odd years), an NMR course with long tradition and prestige.
The purpose of these meetings is not only the presentation of some scientific results but also the sharing of ideas, projects, perspectives and be a forum for discussion of issues that affect our professional and research activity. It is our interest to accommodate all persons using MRI in all its aspects and applications from chemistry to biology through materials science, food and other areas of interest. We also want to get a better insight in the areas of basic research with more immediate application.
Therefore, the GERMN invites all interested persons related or MRI to join the group and to participate in its activities. (página de inscripción de la RSEQ).
Euskadi Nouvelle Aquitaine MAgnetic Resonance network
Magnetic Resonance is the only quantitative technique that characterizes complex matter at the level of nuclei, atoms, molecules and micrometre scales. It is both a multi-disciplinary technique and science that proposes applications for many academic and industrial domains such as health and nutrition, energy and materials for the future and environmental issues.
The ENA-MAR network was created on February 23th 2017. Magnetic resonance scientists of Euskadi and Nouvelle-Aquitaine decided to go beyond the current state of the art and propose to the Euroregion community an ambitious project that will push the limits of knowledge to unprecedented levels and transfer it to the industrial tissue of both regions. About 30 laboratories of major university cites such as Bergerac, Bilbao, Bordeaux, La Rochelle, Limoges, Pamplona, Pau, Poitiers, San Sebastian and Vitoria, will beneficial of the project, as well as large, medium and small enterprises (Laffort, SAFT, Unither, Sanofi, CIVB, Guerbet, etc…) of the Euroregion.
Different area of research are covered by the ENA-MAR network:
. Structural Biology
. Supramolecular chemistry
. NMR methodological developments
. Polymer chemistry
. Battery / material science
. Environment science and toxicology
The CIC bioGUNE Research Center, based in the Bizkaia Science and Technology Park, is a biomedical research organization that develops cutting-edge research at the interface between structural, molecular and cellular biology, with special attention in the study of the molecular basis of the disease, to be used in the development of new diagnostic methods and advanced therapies. CIC bioGUNE is recognized as “Severo Ochoa Center of Excellence”, the largest recognition of centers of excellence in Spain. The center is a member of the Basque Research and Technology Alliance (BRTA), a public consortium formed in collaboration between the Basque Government, the SPRI Group, the Provincial Councils and the Cooperative Research Centers and Technology Centers of the Basque Network of Science and Technology and Innovation. The BRTA aims to ensure a “dynamic of cooperation” that allows to meet the future technological and industrial challenges of Euskadi and improve its international positioning and impact.
