DHL seeks innovative scientists and entrepreneurs

13.12.2012
- DHL grants award for creative innovations in logistics
- Applications can be sent in by January 31, 2013

DHL, the world's leading logistics group, is looking for the most innovative scientist/entrepreneur in the field of logistics to honor them with the 2013 DHL Innovation Award and 10,000 Euro.

Contestants can hand in their applications until January 31, 2013 at
www.dhl-event.com/Innovation-Award.

“We will honor an external, creative mind who has made a great contribution to the logistics industry”, explains Petra Kiwitt, Executive Vice President, Solutions & Innovation, DHL. “The cooperation with science and young entrepreneurs is vital for us and has brought great benefit in the past. With the help of this award, we aim to motivate scientists and young entrepreneurs to go even further to find innovative and sustainable solutions for the logistics industry.”

The award is open to students, graduates and research associates and requires a practice-orientated scientific contribution to a logistics-related problem. For the first time in the award’s history, the jury will also consider young entrepreneurs who have tackled a logistics problem and laid out its solution in a business plan – or even implemented it already.

All suggestions will be evaluated by a high-profile jury consisting of widely recognized experts from science and economy. The jury will focus on the criteria innovation, global relevance, long-term focus and realization. The award ceremony will take place on April 24, 2013, the evening before the DHL Innovation Day 2013 at the DHL Innovation Center in Germany. The DHL Innovation Day is the event on innovation within the logistics industry and will be held for the fifth time. In 2013 the panel discussions and speeches will be around the motto “Reaching for the sky”.

Besides the award for the most innovative scientist/entrepreneur, DHL also honors the most innovative employee and customer solution, and presents an award for innovation journalism.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
