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

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
