The international panel of judges was impressed by Swedish research. The most important criterion was the groups’ potential to become leaders in the international field.
New thinking and tangible plans on how to become leaders in the international field were the most important selection criteria when an international panel of judges chose Centers of Excellence within gender research for the first time.
One of the most important objectives of the call for proposals is to increase internationalisation of Swedish gender research. The international panel of judges was impressed by the quality of the applications and unanimous on the environments that should be financed.
The three chosen environments are:- Nature/Culture Boundaries and Transgressive Encounters,
A total of 60 million SEK will be distributed to these Centers of Gender Excellence. They will each receive 20 million SEK over a five-year period.
The activity will be followed up at the chosen environments at the turn of the year 07/08. There were ten applications in total from six universities. A report describing the preparatory work will be published at www.vr.se frome december 5th.
The international panel was composed of:

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:...
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,...
