“Next Generation of Science Journalists” Award 2013

12.07.2013
To analyze and communicate complex scientific topics is an art. Medical science journalism is no exception. To help recognize emerging medical science journalists, Deutsches Ärzteblatt, the European Union of Science Journalists’ Associations (EUSJA), and the World Health Summit (WHS) will grant the “Next Generation of Science Journalists” Award for the second time.

The top selected five young professionals will be invited to participate in the WHS 2013 and experience a unique international networking and learning opportunity. This provides a career head-start as the annual World Health Summit attracts some 1000 high-ranking participants from all health-related sectors – from Nobel Prize laureates to CEOs and future leaders. Additionally, each winner will receive 500 Euro to recompense travel expenses.

Terms of Application:

- Submission of one article on the main topic of “Global Health”, which must have been published after January 1, 2012. The article must be informed by an appropriate scientific background.
- The article may be published in any form: print, digital, acoustic or visual. Audio and video content is to be made available via web-link.
- Submissions will be accepted from every country, however, English is required. Translations will be accepted if the original article is attached.
- The applicants are to be at the beginning of their career as science journalists with a maximum of 5 years’ experience.
- A short CV (one page), and a scan of a current passport must accompany the submission.
- Please send applications to: science-journalist-award@worldhealthsummit.org
- The submission deadline is September 15, 2013.
An expert panel will rate all submissions and communicate the decision shortly after the deadline. Winning submissions will receive reimbursement for travel expenses (500 Euro each) at the World Health Summit. Please note however: transport and accommodation will need to be organized and paid for individually.

World Health Summit 2013

Each year, the World Health Summit brings together about 1000 high-ranking participants from academia, politics, the private sector, and civil society. It is being held under the high patronage of Angela Merkel, François Hollande, and José Manuel Barroso.

Im Focus: Abrupt motion sharpens x-ray pulses

Spectrally narrow x-ray pulses may be “sharpened” by purely mechanical means. This sounds surprisingly, but a team of theoretical and experimental physicists developed and realized such a method. It is based on fast motions, precisely synchronized with the pulses, of a target interacting with the x-ray light. Thereby, photons are redistributed within the x-ray pulse to the desired spectral region.

A team of theoretical physicists from the MPI for Nuclear Physics (MPIK) in Heidelberg has developed a novel method to intensify the spectrally broad x-ray...

Im Focus: Physicists Design Ultrafocused Pulses

Physicists working with researcher Oriol Romero-Isart devised a new simple scheme to theoretically generate arbitrarily short and focused electromagnetic fields. This new tool could be used for precise sensing and in microscopy.

Microwaves, heat radiation, light and X-radiation are examples for electromagnetic waves. Many applications require to focus the electromagnetic fields to...

Im Focus: Carbon Nanotubes Turn Electrical Current into Light-emitting Quasi-particles

Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers

Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...

Im Focus: Flexible proximity sensor creates smart surfaces

Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.

At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...

Im Focus: 3-D scanning with water

3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects

A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...
