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

Optical quantum computers can revolutionize computer technology. A team of researchers led by scientists from Münster University and KIT now succeeded in putting a quantum optical experimental set-up onto a chip. In doing so, they have met one of the requirements for making it possible to use photonic circuits for optical quantum computers.
Optical quantum computers are what people are pinning their hopes on for tomorrow’s computer technology – whether for tap-proof data encryption, ultrafast...
The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP has been developing various applications for OLED microdisplays based on organic semiconductors. By integrating the capabilities of an image sensor directly into the microdisplay, eye movements can be recorded by the smart glasses and utilized for guidance and control functions, as one example. The new design will be debuted at Augmented World Expo Europe (AWE) in Berlin at Booth B25, October 18th – 19th.
“Augmented-reality” and “wearables” have become terms we encounter almost daily. Both can make daily life a little simpler and provide valuable assistance for...
With the help of artificial intelligence, chemists from the University of Basel in Switzerland have computed the characteristics of about two million crystals made up of four chemical elements. The researchers were able to identify 90 previously unknown thermodynamically stable crystals that can be regarded as new materials. They report on their findings in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters.

For the first time, Fraunhofer IKTS shows additively manufactured hardmetal tools at WorldPM 2016 in Hamburg. Mechanical, chemical as well as a high heat resistance and extreme hardness are required from tools that are used in mechanical and automotive engineering or in plastics and building materials industry. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS in Dresden managed the production of complex hardmetal tools via 3D printing in a quality that are in no way inferior to conventionally produced high-performance tools.
Fraunhofer IKTS counts decades of proven expertise in the development of hardmetals. To date, reliable cutting, drilling, pressing and stamping tools made of...
