“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: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
