Call for Nominations: George Brown Award for International Scientific Cooperation

29.01.2008
The George Brown Award for International Scientific Cooperation, sponsored by U.S. Civilian Research & Development Foundation (CRDF), is the foundation’s most prestigious award.

Since 2005, this award has recognized and honored individuals for their work to promote cross-border science collaboration in the interests of international peace, security and prosperity—in the spirit of the late U.S. Congressman George E. Brown, Jr. CRDF is accepting nominations for the 2008 George Brown Award until April 5, 2008. Applications are available online at http://www.crdf.org/georgebrown. The 4th annual award presentation will be held in September 2008.

The George Brown Award is open to any individual in the policy, business, science, research, or technology community who has contributed substantially to advancing international science and technology cooperation. The award is open to living individuals irrespective of nationality or country of citizenship. Past recipients include Dr. Brian Tucker, GeoHazards International; Dr. Zafra Lerman, Columbia College of Chicago; Dr. King K. Holmes, University of Washington; Dr. John “Jack” Gibbons, former Presidential Science and Technology Advisor; and Dr. Yuri Ossipyan, Russian Academy of Sciences.

The late U.S. Congressman George Brown, the award’s namesake, was Chairman of the House Science Committee during the 102nd and 103rd Congresses and was a recognized leader in forming the institutional framework for science and technology in the Federal government. Brown brought a visionary perspective to Congressional dialogue by talking about conservation and renewable energy sources, technology transfer, sustainable development, environmental degradation, and the need for an agency devoted to civilian technology. His vision for international collaboration helped lead to the creation of CRDF.

Im Focus: Powerful IT security for the car of the future – research alliance develops new approaches

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.

Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...

Im Focus: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
