Europe is in a growth phase--growing in size as several countries are negotiating to join the European Union (EU) and growing in maturity as its institutions evolve to meet better the needs of its citizens. One aspect of this maturation is the realization that the EU structures to support science have failed in many respects and need a drastic overhaul. The European Life Scientists Organization (ELSO) was created last year to pull together molecular life scientists into a coherent body that can work toward improving conditions for research in Europe.
