Applications for the fourth international Young Science Journalists Award of the World Health Summit now open “Next Generation of Science Journalists” Award 2015
In cooperation with Deutsches Ärzteblatt, the European Union of Science Journalists’ Associations (EUSJA), and the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, the World Health Summit presents again the “Next Generation of Science Journalists” Award.
The five winners will be invited to the World Health Summit in October, receive prize money and a certificate, presented by the WHS Presidents Prof. Dr. Detlev Ganten (Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin) and Prof. Dr. Shunichi Fukuhara (Kyoto University).
The Summit offers a unique international networking and learning opportunity as the young journalists meet Nobel Prize laureates, Ministers, CEOs, and internationally leading researchers of Global Health.
Terms of Application:
• Submission of one print, digital, audio, or video feature with a focus on “Health”, which must have been published after January 1, 2014.
• Submissions will be accepted from all countries; however the content should be in English. Translations will be accepted if the original article is attached.
• Applicants should be at the beginning of their journalistic career with a maximum of 5 years’ experience.
• Please apply via email@example.com
• Deadline for applications will be September 01, 2015
Further information on the Award:
The seventh World Health Summit will be held from October 11-13, 2015, at the Federal Foreign Office in Berlin, attracting more than 1,200 participants from more than 80 countries.

Dead and alive at the same time? Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics have implemented Erwin Schrödinger’s paradoxical gedanken experiment employing an entangled atom-light state.
In 1935 Erwin Schrödinger formulated a thought experiment designed to capture the paradoxical nature of quantum physics. The crucial element of this gedanken...
Cellulose obtained from wood has amazing material properties. Empa researchers are now equipping the biodegradable material with additional functionalities to produce implants for cartilage diseases using 3D printing.
It all starts with an ear. Empa researcher Michael Hausmann removes the object shaped like a human ear from the 3D printer and explains:
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...
