The biennial award, which will be presented at the 8th European Congress of Chemical Engineering (ECCE) in Berlin, Germany next year, promotes and rewards international mobility amongst European students by rewarding the best international chemical engineering students. Three prizes will be presented during the congress and each consists of a commemorative certificate, cash prize of up to € 2,000, free admission to ECCE and reimbursement of travel expenses.
The award is open to all students who are citizens of an EFCE represented EU country who have studied in another country to their native one for at least one semester in their first or second cycle study programmes in chemical engineering.
Andrew Furlong, Director of Policy and Communications at IChemE (Institution of Chemical Engineers) commended the awards saying:
“The student mobility award is an excellent opportunity to showcase the emerging chemical engineering talent in Europe. I would urge all eligible students and graduates to submit an application for this highly respected award.”
Applications should include the application form, available from the EFCE website: www.efce.info and the following attachments: curriculum vitae, transcript of records or similar documents of all places of study, other proof of academic performance and a one-page essay about the experience of studying in different countries.
All documents should be submitted in English, no later than 2 years after graduation and the deadline for submission of applications is 28 February 2011.

Physicists have developed a technique based on optical microscopy that can be used to create images of atoms on the nanoscale. In particular, the new method allows the imaging of quantum dots in a semiconductor chip. Together with colleagues from the University of Bochum, scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute reported the findings in the journal Nature Photonics.
Microscopes allow us to see structures that are otherwise invisible to the human eye. However, conventional optical microscopes cannot be used to image...
On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.
We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
