Extracted from the “Opening lecture” given at the 10th Multinational Congress on Microscopy (Urbino, 4-7 September 2011)
by Giuseppe Arancia,
Department of Technology and Health, Italian National Institute of Health Past President and Honorary Member of the Italian Society of Microscopical Sciences.
"In 1990, some representatives of the Italian, Hungarian, Austrian, Yugoslavian and Czechoslovak Societies for Electron Microscopy began to have contacts in order to evaluate the possibility of organizing jointly a multinational congress on electron microscopy. The inspirer reasons of this idea were, mainly, the substitution of a number of small congresses in neighboring countries with a single multinational meeting with the aim of increasing the scientific level and reducing the organizing costs, and to favor interactions and exchange of information and experiences among researchers operating in different countries."


The aim of MCM conferences is to become a worldwide forum for discussion on different application of various microscopical techniques for both experts and young researchers. MCM conferences have always been a good instrument for establishment of new liaisons between laboratories interested in similar projects. Trade exhibitions also helped to gain insight into the newest development of microscopy.
