“Next Generation of Science Journalists” Award 2013

12.07.2013
To analyze and communicate complex scientific topics is an art. Medical science journalism is no exception. To help recognize emerging medical science journalists, Deutsches Ärzteblatt, the European Union of Science Journalists’ Associations (EUSJA), and the World Health Summit (WHS) will grant the “Next Generation of Science Journalists” Award for the second time.

The top selected five young professionals will be invited to participate in the WHS 2013 and experience a unique international networking and learning opportunity. This provides a career head-start as the annual World Health Summit attracts some 1000 high-ranking participants from all health-related sectors – from Nobel Prize laureates to CEOs and future leaders. Additionally, each winner will receive 500 Euro to recompense travel expenses.

Terms of Application:

- Submission of one article on the main topic of “Global Health”, which must have been published after January 1, 2012. The article must be informed by an appropriate scientific background.
- The article may be published in any form: print, digital, acoustic or visual. Audio and video content is to be made available via web-link.
- Submissions will be accepted from every country, however, English is required. Translations will be accepted if the original article is attached.
- The applicants are to be at the beginning of their career as science journalists with a maximum of 5 years’ experience.
- A short CV (one page), and a scan of a current passport must accompany the submission.
- Please send applications to: science-journalist-award@worldhealthsummit.org
- The submission deadline is September 15, 2013.
An expert panel will rate all submissions and communicate the decision shortly after the deadline. Winning submissions will receive reimbursement for travel expenses (500 Euro each) at the World Health Summit. Please note however: transport and accommodation will need to be organized and paid for individually.

World Health Summit 2013

Each year, the World Health Summit brings together about 1000 high-ranking participants from academia, politics, the private sector, and civil society. It is being held under the high patronage of Angela Merkel, François Hollande, and José Manuel Barroso.

Im Focus: Elucidating the Atomic Mechanism of Superlubricity

The phenomenon of so-called superlubricity is known, but so far the explanation at the atomic level has been missing: for example, how does extremely low friction occur in bearings? Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institutes IWM and IWS jointly deciphered a universal mechanism of superlubricity for certain diamond-like carbon layers in combination with organic lubricants. Based on this knowledge, it is now possible to formulate design rules for supra lubricating layer-lubricant combinations. The results are presented in an article in Nature Communications, volume 10.

One of the most important prerequisites for sustainable and environmentally friendly mobility is minimizing friction. Research and industry have been dedicated...
