Since 2012, the association, together with the CAS, has been supporting German-Chinese research projects that are of key importance to society. This year, five projects have been selected from the research areas Energy, Earth and Environment, Health, Key Technologies and Structure of Matter.
The Helmholtz Association and the CAS are jointly financing the projects with up to €155,000 per year over a three-year period.Strengthening the German-Chinese partnership
The projects that have been selected for funding as “Helmholtz-CAS Joint Research Groups” will receive up to €120,000 per year from the Helmholtz Association’s Initiative and Networking Fund, which it established to enable the swift implementation of strategic plans. The CAS is financing the projects with up to €35,000 per year.
“With this funding we are also helping to support talented young researchers of both nationalities and providing them with the conditions that they need to carry out their excellent research, without luring them away from their home countries,” Mlynek says. In this way, he adds, the Helmholtz Association is helping to curb the migration of young researchers out of China as well as to strengthen German research through acquiring excellent research partners. A similar programme with Russia has been running since 2006 – with great success, as Mlynek stresses.Next round of applications

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
