DECHEMA Gesellschaft für Chemische Technik und Biotechnologie is pleased to invite entries for the tenth award of the Hellmuth Fischer Medal.
Preference is given to scientists, who must have obtained their Ph.D. not earlier than 12 years before the deadline for applications for work that has contributed towards extending or deepening the fundamentals of electrochemistry, corrosion or corrosion protection, or towards their industrial application.
Nominations for candidates should be accompanied by a curriculum vitae, reprints of important publications, a list of publications and a brief statement for the reasons for the nomination (approx. 1 typewritten page).
It is not possible for candidates to nominate themselves.
Nominations should be submitted by February 27, 2015 to:
Prof. Dr. K. Wagemann
P.O.Box 15 01 04
D-60061 Frankfurt am Main
The final decision on the award of the 2015 Hellmuth Fischer Medal lies with the
Selection Committee which is composed of six distinguished scientists. The medal will be presented on the occasion of the 13th International Fischer Symposium which will take place in Lübeck/Germany from 7 – 11 June 2015.
Previous medallists were Prof. Dr. Ulrich Stimming, New York, in 1989,
Prof. Dr. Klaus-Michael Jüttner, Frankfurt am Main, in 1991, Prof. Dr. Roger Charles
Newman, Manchester, in 1994, Dr. Philippe Allongue, Paris, in 1997,
Prof. Dr. R. M. Penner, Irvine USA, in 2000, Prof. Dr. Nongjian Tao, Tempe USA, in 2003, Dr. Anthony Kucernak, London, in 2006, Prof. Dr. Kaspar Andreas Friedrich, Stuttgart, in 2009 and Prof. Dr. Marc T. M. Koper, Leiden, in 2012.

Planet Earth experienced a global climate shift in the late 1980s on an unprecedented scale, fuelled by anthropogenic warming and a volcanic eruption, according to new research published this week.
Scientists say that a major step change, or ‘regime shift’, in the Earth’s biophysical systems, from the upper atmosphere to the depths of the ocean and from...
The Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE has installed 70 photovoltaic modules on the outer façade of one of its lab buildings. The modules were...
Nerve cells cover their high energy demand with glucose and lactate. Scientists of the University of Zurich now provide new support for this. They show for the first time in the intact mouse brain evidence for an exchange of lactate between different brain cells. With this study they were able to confirm a 20-year old hypothesis.
In comparison to other organs, the human brain has the highest energy requirements. The supply of energy for nerve cells and the particular role of lactic acid...
In laser material processing, the simulation of processes has made great strides over the past few years. Today, the software can predict relatively well what will happen on the workpiece. Unfortunately, it is also highly complex and requires a lot of computing time. Thanks to clever simplification, experts from Fraunhofer ILT are now able to offer the first-ever simulation software that calculates processes in real time and also runs on tablet computers and smartphones. The fast software enables users to do without expensive experiments and to find optimum process parameters even more effectively.
Before now, the reliable simulation of laser processes was a job for experts. Armed with sophisticated software packages and after many hours on computer...
