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:
Professor Marian Simms, Political Studies Department, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand, email@example.com
Professor Sara Arber, University of Surrey, Dept of Sociology, Surrey, England, firstname.lastname@example.org
Professor Yvonne Benschop, Radboud University Nijmegen, Nijmegen School of Management, HK Nijmegen, The Netherlands, email@example.com

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
So-called quantum many-body scars allow quantum systems to stay out of equilibrium much longer, explaining experiment | Study published in Nature Physics
Recently, researchers from Harvard and MIT succeeded in trapping a record 53 atoms and individually controlling their quantum state, realizing what is called a...
The historic first detection of gravitational waves from colliding black holes far outside our galaxy opened a new window to understanding the universe. A...
A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.
The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...
