The BBVA Foundation announces its 2007 Awards for Biodiversity Conservation

01.06.2007
The BBVA Foundation has announced its 2007 International Awards for Biodiversity Conservation, whose goal is to recognize the efforts of the scientists, conservation organizations and professionals working to protect our planet’s natural heritage.

This third edition of the BBVA Foundation Awards for Biodiversity Conservation takes in four prize categories, for world-class scientific research in Ecology and Conservation Biology, innovative actions to preserve biodiversity in Spain and Latin America, and the dissemination of knowledge and social awareness on the importance of protecting nature. The combined amount of these awards, at over one million euros, is the highest of its kind internationally.

The present call will be open until July 12 this year, with the award decision made public before January 12, 2008.

BBVA FOUNDATION AWARD FOR SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH IN ECOLOGY AND CONSERVATION BIOLOGY

... more about:
»AWARD »Biodiversity »Biology »Conservation »Ecology

Recognizing contributions by scientists in any country that have significantly advanced the boundaries of knowledge in the fields of Ecology and Conservation Biology. A single prize of 500,000 euros will go to one or more scientists, up to a maximum of three, for a particularly significant contribution.

Nominations for this award must be presented by the authorities of universities or research institutions, national academies of science or scientific societies, or by scientists or experts of acknowledged repute in the fields of Ecology or Conservation Biology.

BBVA FOUNDATION AWARDS FOR BIODIVERSITY CONSERVATION PROJECTS IN LATIN AMERICA AND SPAIN

Recognizing the direct execution of one or more innovative projects for the conservation or restoration of species, habitats and ecosystems in Latin America and Spain, carried out by non-profit organizations. Two awards will be granted, of 250,000 euros each, one for the best conservation project undertaken in Latin America and the other for the best conservation project in Spain.

Nominations should be presented by representatives of national, international or supranational institutions with competences in the area of nature conservation; office holders of scientific societies; scientists or experts of acknowledged repute in the field of Ecology or Conservation Biology; and national or international conservationist organizations.

BBVA FOUNDATION AWARD FOR KNOWLEDGE DISSEMINATION AND COMMUNICATION IN BIODIVERSITY CONSERVATION

Recognizing the dissemination to society of knowledge and values concerning the natural environment and the importance of its conservation. A single, 80,000 euro prize will be granted to an individual of Spanish nationality or a public or private non-profit organization with its head offices in Spain.

Nominations should be presented by representatives of national or supranational institutions with competences in the area of nature conservation; office holders of scientific societies or associations of media professionals; scientists or experts of acknowledged repute in the field of Ecology or Conservation Biology; and national or international conservationist organizations.

Call conditions and application forms are available from the BBVA Foundation website (www.fbbva.es)

Im Focus: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
