Invitation to the STI 2013 Berlin

10.07.2013
The Institute for Research Information and Quality Assurance (iFQ) cordially invites you today to the STI 2013---the 18th Science and Technology Indicators Conference! iFQ as a member of the European Network of Indicator Designers is proud to organize this international conference in the field of science and technology studies this year.

Under the heading "Translational twists and turns: Science as a socio-economic endeavor" the STI 2013 addresses questions of measuring scientific performance and its societal and economic impact. Which techniques, indicators, and benchmarks are appropriate for performance measurement and assessment, what is important when designing and applying them, and how do they affect rewarding and sanctioning in the science system?

80 international scholars selected by peer review are going to present their answers to these questions from September 4 to 6 in Berlin, Germany.

The key topics of the STI 2013 are:

-- University assessment, in particular, with regard to competitions for funding, rankings and ratings, benchmarking, performance-based funding systems, and evaluations;

-- Individual assessment, in particular, with regard to single scholars, the adequacy and the challenges of indicators and techniques taking into account special disciplinary standards;

-- Determining and measuring translation benefits of science.

The complete program is online now! Please visit: http://www.2013.sticonference.org.

Im Focus: A Challenging European Research Project to Develop New Tiny Microscopes

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.

To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
