Bauhaus.SOLAR Award

The Bauhaus.SOLAR Award is being awarded for the first time at the 3rd International Congress Bauhaus.SOLAR in Erfurt (Germany).

This award for young talent is being advertised Europe-wide by SolarInput e.V. and Solarvalley Mitteldeutschland e.V. and is aimed at students and young graduates. It honours superb architecture and design projects which demonstrate the innovative use of renewable energy.

Entry terms and conditions

Students from all European design and architecture courses as well as young designers and architects who graduated up to two years ago are invited to enter the Bauhaus.SOLAR Award competition.

The submitted projects (designs and realised projects) may not be more than two years old and must have been produced during the course of study or at the most two years after studying. Official languages of the competition: German and English


The Bauhaus.SOLAR Award is endowed with
Euro 15,000.00 in total and offers young talented designers and architects the chance to present designs, projects and innovation to the public and businesses.

Dates/Competition process

The competition is planned as a 2 stage process.
In the first round written explanations and graphic representations of the design idea are to be submitted in A4 format.
The jury will select 11 works from the submitted entries for the 2nd stage of the competition, which will be nominated for the Bauhaus.SOLAR Award.
For the 2nd stage of the competition the draft is to be present on two display boards in detail.
It is to be submitted by data media.
1st round submission date: 30.06.2010
2nd round submission date: 15.10.2010
The international jury consists of architects, designers and representatives from solar industry and research.

Award ceremony/exhibition

The prize and the 10 runners up prizes will be awarded at the Bauhaus.SOLAR Award Ceremony on 10th November 2010 in Erfurt at the 3rd international Bauhaus.SOLAR Conference.

On this occasion the award winning designs as well as the 2nd round projects will be displayed in a special exhibition.

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
