ESMT European School of Management and Technology is offering several additional merit-based scholarships for applicants to the Full-time MBA program beginning January 2010 in Berlin. These scholarships have been made possible by ESMT's partner companies, who have donated to the scholarship pool.
Outstanding female candidates may also apply for a limited number of full-tuition scholarships. ESMT's partners are a group of 25 global companies, such as Allianz, BMW, Daimler, Deutsche Bank, MAN, Siemens, The Boston Consulting Group, and ThyssenKrupp.
ESMT is also expanding its Corporate Fellowship Program, which offers students an alternative means of financing their MBA program, while at the same time guaranteeing an attractive career opportunity after graduation at one of ESMT's founding companies. ESMT matches the applicant's profile to the recruitment needs of the corporate partner, such as insurance giant Allianz and Europe's leading utility company E.ON.
The partner company supports the fellow throughout their studies in the MBA program and during a 6-month traineeship period in the company upon graduation. "The support of my sponsor allows me to really concentrate on my performance in class," said Natalia Nazarova, Allianz Corporate Fellow, MBA Class of 2009, who will be completing her traineeship at the corporate headquarters in Munich. "Not having to worry about placement upon graduation is also important to me, as it takes away one of the main worries of any MBA student."
Zoltán Antal-Mokos, Associate Dean of Degree Programs at ESMT as of November 1, 2009, is proud that ESMT can provide some of its MBA students further financial backing. He said, "With these scholarships, ESMT's founders and benefactors show their dedication to supporting premier education for international talent. With their support the school is able to offer students an attractive career boost."
All accepted applicants to the ESMT Full-time MBA program are screened for scholarship selection. Applications will be accepted until early December 2009.

New Master’s programme: University of Kaiserslautern educates experts in quantum technology

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.
The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!
When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...
For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.
Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
