University of Greifswald re-opens application for Rudolf-Stundl-Award for Textile Art

17.04.2014

The Rudolf-Stundl-Foundation at the University of Greifswald has opened the competition for the 2014 Rudolf-Stundl-Award for Textile Arts. The prize is awarded for outstanding academic and artistic work related to textiles or neighbouring fields of material culture. The foundation board extended the applica-tion deadline for the award of 700 Euro until 31st December 2014. The contest will be held every four years and accepts submissions from all members of the University of Greifswald as well as the 26 international partner universities.

Rudolf Stundl (1897 – 1990), the initiator of artisan rug making in the Region of Western Pomerania, founded the award in 1985. The competition seeks to advance the academic discourse on the topic of textiles.

The spectrum of possible contributions ranges from works of art using textiles to research on historical, art historical, technical or economic aspects of textiles and their production.

Contributions may also address artefacts of material culture and items from university collections, where these relate to textiles and their production. Work on the connections between textiles and overarching issues such as marketing, communication, ecology and digital media may also be submitted.

The contest for the Rudolf-Stundl-Award is held for the first time in nineteen years. In 2013 the charter of the Stundl-Foundation was revised and a new foundation board was elected. Keeping in mind the original intention of the founder (Rudolf Stundl), the new board updated the focus and framework of the prize. For the first time, not only members of the University of Greifswald are able to enter the competition.

In order to strengthen international partnerships, submissions will be accepted from members of all 26 partner universities in North and South America, Australia, South-East-Asia, Japan as well as Northern and Eastern Europe.

The artwork has to be submitted to the head of the Academic Art Collection, Dr. Birgit Dahlenburg, until 31st December 2014. All applicants must provide proof of intellectual property over the submitted item(s).

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...

Im Focus: Water is not the same as water

Water molecules exist in two different forms with almost identical physical properties. For the first time, researchers have succeeded in separating the two forms to show that they can exhibit different chemical reactivities. These results were reported by researchers from the University of Basel and their colleagues in Hamburg in the scientific journal Nature Communications.

From a chemical perspective, water is a molecule in which a single oxygen atom is linked to two hydrogen atoms. It is less well known that water exists in two...
