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).

Optical quantum computers can revolutionize computer technology. A team of researchers led by scientists from Münster University and KIT now succeeded in putting a quantum optical experimental set-up onto a chip. In doing so, they have met one of the requirements for making it possible to use photonic circuits for optical quantum computers.
Optical quantum computers are what people are pinning their hopes on for tomorrow’s computer technology – whether for tap-proof data encryption, ultrafast...
The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP has been developing various applications for OLED microdisplays based on organic semiconductors. By integrating the capabilities of an image sensor directly into the microdisplay, eye movements can be recorded by the smart glasses and utilized for guidance and control functions, as one example. The new design will be debuted at Augmented World Expo Europe (AWE) in Berlin at Booth B25, October 18th – 19th.

With the help of artificial intelligence, chemists from the University of Basel in Switzerland have computed the characteristics of about two million crystals made up of four chemical elements. The researchers were able to identify 90 previously unknown thermodynamically stable crystals that can be regarded as new materials. They report on their findings in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters.

For the first time, Fraunhofer IKTS shows additively manufactured hardmetal tools at WorldPM 2016 in Hamburg. Mechanical, chemical as well as a high heat resistance and extreme hardness are required from tools that are used in mechanical and automotive engineering or in plastics and building materials industry. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS in Dresden managed the production of complex hardmetal tools via 3D printing in a quality that are in no way inferior to conventionally produced high-performance tools.
Fraunhofer IKTS counts decades of proven expertise in the development of hardmetals. To date, reliable cutting, drilling, pressing and stamping tools made of...
