Young European Scientists learn Management Skills

28.04.2008
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.

Im Focus: Physicists Design Ultrafocused Pulses

Physicists working with researcher Oriol Romero-Isart devised a new simple scheme to theoretically generate arbitrarily short and focused electromagnetic fields. This new tool could be used for precise sensing and in microscopy.

Microwaves, heat radiation, light and X-radiation are examples for electromagnetic waves. Many applications require to focus the electromagnetic fields to...

Im Focus: Carbon Nanotubes Turn Electrical Current into Light-emitting Quasi-particles

Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers

Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...

Im Focus: Flexible proximity sensor creates smart surfaces

Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.

At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...

Im Focus: 3-D scanning with water

3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects

A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
