“Next Generation of Science Journalists” Award 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:
- 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: ILA 2018: Laser alternative to hexavalent chromium coating

At the 2018 ILA Berlin Air Show from April 25–29, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is showcasing extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA): A video documents how for metal components that are highly loaded, EHLA has already proved itself as an alternative to hard chrome plating, which is now allowed only under special conditions.

When the EU restricted the use of hexavalent chromium compounds to special applications requiring authorization, the move prompted a rethink in the surface...

Im Focus: Radar for navigation support from autonomous flying drones

At the ILA Berlin, hall 4, booth 202, Fraunhofer FHR will present two radar sensors for navigation support of drones. The sensors are valuable components in the implementation of autonomous flying drones: they function as obstacle detectors to prevent collisions. Radar sensors also operate reliably in restricted visibility, e.g. in foggy or dusty conditions. Due to their ability to measure distances with high precision, the radar sensors can also be used as altimeters when other sources of information such as barometers or GPS are not available or cannot operate optimally.

Drones play an increasingly important role in the area of logistics and services. Well-known logistic companies place great hope in these compact, aerial...
