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: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...

Im Focus: On the way to a biological alternative

A bacterial enzyme enables reactions that open up alternatives to key industrial chemical processes

The research team of Prof. Dr. Oliver Einsle at the University of Freiburg's Institute of Biochemistry has long been exploring the functioning of nitrogenase....

Larsen C Ice Shelf rift finally breaks through

A one trillion tonne iceberg - one of the biggest ever recorded -- has calved away from the Larsen C Ice Shelf in Antarctica, after a rift in the ice,...

Im Focus: Laser-cooled ions contribute to better understanding of friction

Physics supports biology: Researchers from PTB have developed a model system to investigate friction phenomena with atomic precision

Friction: what you want from car brakes, otherwise rather a nuisance. In any case, it is useful to know as precisely as possible how friction phenomena arise –...
