EMBO announces the selection of eight scientists as recipients of the 2014 Installation Grants. The grants will help the scientists to relocate and set up laboratories in the Czech Republic, Poland, Portugal and Turkey.
“Our grants directly support young scientists going to participating member states to establish their own research groups. The awards help talented researchers to contribute to the strengthening of science in these countries and to build a successful research programme that can help to promote further collaborations,” said Gerlind Wallon, Installation Grants Programme Manager and EMBO Deputy Director.
Of the grantees three will move to Turkey, two to the Czech Republic, two to Portugal and one to Poland. They will relocate to these countries from institutes and universities in Canada, Germany and the United States.
EMBO Installation Grants are awarded annually to strengthen science in selected Member States. The scheme is supported by these countries and a committee of EMBO Members selects the awardees.
The scientists receive 50,000 Euros annually for three to five years from their host countries. The eight grantees will also enter the network of EMBO Young Investigators, which helps them to integrate into the European scientific community.
71 group leaders have received support through EMBO Installation Grants since the start of the programme in 2006.
The next application deadline for EMBO Installation Grants is 15 April 2015.

EMBO is an organization of more than 1700 leading researchers that promotes excellence in the life sciences. The major goals of the organization are to support talented researchers at all stages of their careers, stimulate the exchange of scientific information, and help build a European research environment where scientists can achieve their best work.
EMBO helps young scientists to advance their research, promote their international reputations and ensure their mobility. Courses, workshops, conferences and scientific journals disseminate the latest research and offer training in techniques to maintain high standards of excellence in research practice. EMBO helps to shape science and research policy by seeking input and feedback from our community and by following closely the trends in science in Europe.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).
Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...
