  • [01] Stopping mass emigration of young people a key goal, Dep. Minister Haritsis says

    ANA-MPA -- Stopping the mass migration of young people abroad was one of the main goals of the government, Deputy Economy, Development and Tourism Minister Alexis Haritsis told the newspaper 'Avghi' in an interview published on Sunday. He said the ministry intends to direct the "economic results" from the new National Strategic Reference Framework (NSRF) "toward the social majority, with special provision for those hardest hit by the crisis." Haritsis said that a payment of 4.5 billion euros was planned by the end of the year in order to smoothly wrap up the programmes of the current period and successfully begin those of the next, for which 26 billion euros in funds are available. The government's intention was to place emphasis on research and innovation, young entrepreneurship, development of new skills, environmental protection projects and social exclusion, he said. Among sectors likely to benefit, the minister listed the farming and foods sector, pharmaceuticals, new technology, logistics, industrial materials, environmental industry and tourism. He said an invitation for actions to upgrade the quality of services provided by tourist enterprises, will be sent out in the coming weeks.

    [02] Science does not need a God-Creator to explain the universe, Russian cosmologist Starobinski tells ANA-MPA

    ANA/MPA---The particles of dark matter and the primordial gravitational waves will be the two most important discoveries of the next decade, the top Russian astrophysicist and cosmologist Alexei Starobinski said in an exclusive interview with ANA-MPA.

    Starobinski has been a chief scientist (Principal Research Scientist) in Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow since 1997.

    In an exclusive interview ahead of his visit in Athens, he said that the goal of a unified "Theory of Everything" seems a distant dream. He did not rule out the existence of many universes parallel to ours, but he categorically rejected the need for a God-Creator of the universe. He also noted that political problems are not unresolved, but the solutions have been inadequate, if not foolish. He also called on the new Greek government to broaden its international partnerships in science.

    Starobinski was born in 1948 and obtained a master's degree from Moscow's State University in 1972 and a doctorate from Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics in 1975. From 1990 to 1997 he headed the Department of Gravitation Physics and Cosmology of the Institute and he was an assistant director from 1999 to 2003.

    In 1970s, he developed important theories on the creation of particles in the early universe and the creation of radiation from black holes (1973), which was a forerunner of the theory of Hawking radiation. In 1979 he became widely known for his contributions to the theory of cosmic inflation, which explains the dramatic expansion of the universe immediately after the initial "Big Bang."

    He is a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the German National Academy of Sciences "Leopolntina", the New York Academy of Sciences and the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters.

    He has, among others, been honored with the awards "Friedman" of the Russian Academy of Sciences (1996), "Tomalla" (2009), "Oscar Klein" of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences (2010), "Amaldi "(2012), "Cosmology Gruber" (2013) and "Kavli Astrophysics" of the Norwegian Academy of Sciences (2014).

    Starobinski will be one of the speakers at the "Symposium of the Seven Wise Men of Cosmology," to be held at the Athens Concert Hall, on Friday, October 2. In the evening he will be awarded - along with other eminent colleagues - by the President of the Republic Prokopis Pavlopoulos.
