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, firstname.lastname@example.org
Professor Sara Arber, University of Surrey, Dept of Sociology, Surrey, England, email@example.com
Professor Yvonne Benschop, Radboud University Nijmegen, Nijmegen School of Management, HK Nijmegen, The Netherlands, firstname.lastname@example.org

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...
