The Funding Agencies for Large Colliders met in the Shonan Village Center in Kanagawa, Japan on 17 April. FALC is an informal group of agency representatives who discuss large international projects in particle physics, both projects that are under way and those in the planning stages. FALC has given special attention to the ILC since it is a totally global initiative and has no home laboratory to oversee its development. The meeting in Japan discussed the future of ILC R&D beyond the Global Design Effort mandate to produce a Technical Design Report next year.

What do huge sailing ships, science and India have in common? They were all present at this year's celebrations for the birthday of Hamburg's harbour. This year's special guest country was India, and as DESY has strong links with India especially in the field of photon science, DESY put up a tent in the harbour and presented itself, its science and its Indian scientists to the more than one million visitors.
