Grant Supports Young Researchers in Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland
Heidelberg, Germany - The European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) announces that the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) has joined the organization in supporting young scientists from Central Europe, namely the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland. The HHMI provides $ 2 Mio for the next four years to the EMBO Young Investigator Programme. Each year six scientists can be supported with Euro 30 000 per year for a duration of three years from this additional fund.
"We are delighted that the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) will help EMBO to support young scientists from these countries. We are positive that this will boost the status of up-and-coming scientists in Central Europe," said Frank Gannon, Executive Director of EMBO.
The EMBO Young Investigator Programme promotes Europes most promising young researchers in the life sciences. The programme offers a three year membership, providing a number of benefits, such as mentorship, opportunities for networking and an award of Euro 15 000 annually. Additional funds can be obtained from a pool of Euro 500 000. The distinction as EMBO Young Investigator is a leverage for obtaining funds nationally and internationally.
Gerlind Wallon, Manager of the EMBO Young Investigator Programme, noted "the scientists selected to date have quickly established a useful new network. The programmes activities are very helpful for scientists at the beginning of their careers. We are happy to be able to offer more financial support to Central European scientists through the collaboration with the HHMI."
Interested scientists should apply to the EMBO Young Investigator Programme. For more information visit our web site at: http://www.embo.org/projects/yip/index.html

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.
Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
