International competition offers head start for Science Journalists

09.08.2012
To help recognize emerging Science Journalists, Germany’s most read medical journal Deutsches Ärzteblatt, the World Federation of Science Journalists (WFSJ), and the World Health Summit designed the “Next Generation of Science Journalists” competition.
To analyze and communicate complex scientific topics is more than just a profession – it is an art. Accordingly, launching a career as Science Journalist proves to be an arduous endeavor. Medical Science Journalism is no exception.

Each winner of the “Next Generation of Science Journalists” competition will participate in the World Health Summit 2012; take part in special workshops and meetings; enjoy unique, international networking opportunities. The submitted articles may be published via http://www.aerzteblatt.de and support for travel expenses is being offered.

The Young Professional Applicants are to be at the beginning of their career as Science Journalists, and must submit one article on the main topic of “Global Health”, which must have been published after January 1st, 2011. The submission deadline is Sept. 1st 2012, applications may be sent to:
science-journalist-award@worldhealthsummit.org

Further details and terms of application are available online:

The internationally renowned World Health Summit has the patronage of Angela Merkel, Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, and François Hollande, President of the French Republic. It annually attracts high-ranking participants from Academia, Politics, Private Sector, Civil Society, NGOs, Media, and more. The “Next Generation of Science Journalists” competition opens the door to this elaborate meeting.

World Health Summit 2012
Oct. 21st – 24th, 2012
Langenbeck-Virchow-Haus, Luisenstr. 58, 10117 Berlin, Germany

Im Focus: Surfing a wake of light

Researchers observe and control light wakes for the first time

When a duck paddles across a pond or a supersonic plane flies through the sky, it leaves a wake in its path. Wakes occur whenever something is traveling...

Im Focus: Light-induced Magnetic Waves in Materials Engineered at the Atomic Scale

Researchers explore ultrafast control of magnetism across interfaces: A new study discovers how the sudden excitation of lattice vibrations in a crystal can trigger a change of the magnetic properties of an atomically-thin layer that lies on its surface.

A research team, led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter at CFEL in Hamburg, the University of Oxford, and the...

Im Focus: Viaducts with wind turbines, the new renewable energy source

Wind turbines could be installed under some of the biggest bridges on the road network to produce electricity. So it is confirmed by calculations carried out by a European researchers team, that have taken a viaduct in the Canary Islands as a reference. This concept could be applied in heavily built-up territories or natural areas with new constructions limitations.

The Juncal Viaduct, in Gran Canaria, has served as a reference for Spanish and British researchers to verify that the wind blowing between the pillars on this...

Im Focus: X-rays and electrons join forces to map catalytic reactions in real-time

New technique combines electron microscopy and synchrotron X-rays to track chemical reactions under real operating conditions

A new technique pioneered at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory reveals atomic-scale changes during catalytic reactions in real...

Im Focus: Iron: A biological element?

Think of an object made of iron: An I-beam, a car frame, a nail. Now imagine that half of the iron in that object owes its existence to bacteria living two and a half billion years ago.
