EFCE launches 2011 student award

21.12.2010
The European Federation of Chemical Engineering is pleased to announce the launch of its 2011 student mobility award.

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.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
