Young European Scientists learn Management Skills
In the week of May 5th to 9th, 60 young life science researchers from 13 European countries will join a workshop on Management Skills in Science in Erkner, close to Berlin, Germany.
The workshop is the key element of the EU funded programme TRAYSS PRIME and will augment the technical skills of the participants with management and leadership skills. Central topics are project management in research, handling intellectual property in biotechnology and preparing EU grant applications.
These topics will be supplemented by seminars on bioethics, conflict- and time management. During excursions to Bayer Schering Heath Care Berlin and to a meeting of the Commission for Education, Research and Technology Assessment of the German Parliament, participants will have the opportunity to discuss their questions and opinions with deciders from the fields of business, politics and science.
The seminar week is organized by ProSciencia Beratungs-GmbH from Lübeck in cooperation with the project partners Steinbeis-Forschungszentrum Technologie-Management Nordost from Rostock and the international biotechnology network ScanBalt.
During the runtime of the TRAYSS PRIME project, several one-day workshops covering individual topics in the area of scientific management were held in different European countries. The workshops were very well received by the scientific community. The final workshop will now combine and intensify all topics. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to form intensive professional contacts and to initiate future cooperations.

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
