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: Computational high-throughput screening finds hard magnets containing less rare earth elements

Permanent magnets are very important for technologies of the future like electromobility and renewable energy, and rare earth elements (REE) are necessary for their manufacture. The Fraunhofer Institute for Mechanics of Materials IWM in Freiburg, Germany, has now succeeded in identifying promising approaches and materials for new permanent magnets through use of an in-house simulation process based on high-throughput screening (HTS). The team was able to improve magnetic properties this way and at the same time replaced REE with elements that are less expensive and readily available. The results were published in the online technical journal “Scientific Reports”.

The starting point for IWM researchers Wolfgang Körner, Georg Krugel, and Christian Elsässer was a neodymium-iron-nitrogen compound based on a type of...

Im Focus: Atomic precision: technologies for the next-but-one generation of microchips

In the Beyond EUV project, the Fraunhofer Institutes for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen and for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF in Jena are developing key technologies for the manufacture of a new generation of microchips using EUV radiation at a wavelength of 6.7 nm. The resulting structures are barely thicker than single atoms, and they make it possible to produce extremely integrated circuits for such items as wearables or mind-controlled prosthetic limbs.

In 1965 Gordon Moore formulated the law that came to be named after him, which states that the complexity of integrated circuits doubles every one to two...

Im Focus: Researchers demonstrate size quantization of Dirac fermions in graphene

Characterization of high-quality material reveals important details relevant to next generation nanoelectronic devices

Quantum mechanics is the field of physics governing the behavior of things on atomic scales, where things work very differently from our everyday world.

Im Focus: Graphene: A quantum of current

When current comes in discrete packages: Viennese scientists unravel the quantum properties of the carbon material graphene

In 2010 the Nobel Prize in physics was awarded for the discovery of the exceptional material graphene, which consists of a single layer of carbon atoms...

Im Focus: Transparent - Flexible - Printable: Key technologies for tomorrow’s displays

The trend-forward world of display technology relies on innovative materials and novel approaches to steadily advance the visual experience, for example through higher pixel densities, better contrast, larger formats or user-friendler design. Fraunhofer ISC’s newly developed materials for optics and electronics now broaden the application potential of next generation displays. Learn about lower cost-effective wet-chemical printing procedures and the new materials at the Fraunhofer ISC booth # 1021 in North Hall D during the SID International Symposium on Information Display held from 22 to 27 May 2016 at San Francisco’s Moscone Center.
