Following the ESRS conference in Bologna, the Scientific Committee reviewed comments and suggestions provided by participants to members of the Scientific Committee. A number of points relevant to the organisation of the Basel congress were also discussed (e.g., programme overview; guidelines for abstract submission) and suggestions will be submitted for consideration to the ESRS Board in the upcoming months.

The Scientific Committee also reviewed applications for the ESRS short-term research fellowships, ESRS meetings and courses fellowships, and ESRS two-week training grant, and made recommendations to the Board.
