EDCTP offers € 5 M for research integration

27.03.2008
EDCTP launches a call for proposals worth € 5 M, which will serve to integrate and complement research carried out by EDCTP Member States and their African partners on HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis in sub-Saharan Africa.

With this call, EDCTP invites member states to link their national research activities on the three poverty-related diseases (PRDs) and offers a financial contribution to top up available funds. EDCTP believes that such collaboration between EDCTP member states and African partners increases the efficiency of research into the three PRDs and that it will be a powerful tool for avoiding duplication.

The € 5 M grant aims at funding projects within the scope of the EDCTP programme, namely the acceleration of clinical trials on HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis interventions in sub-Saharan Africa through:

• Integration of member states’ national programmes
• Strengthening of north-south partnership
• Coordination and networking of African researchers
• Creation of sustainable capacity building in Africa
The grant aims to enhance activities of researchers investigating the same topic or disease, reduce duplication of effort and improve collaborations within or between African institutions and research centres.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
