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: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
