Researcher of Maastricht University wins Von der Gablentz prize

19.04.2012
The Otto von der Gablentz Academic Prize went this year to Dr. Hylke Dijkstra of Maastricht University.

He received the award for his dissertation on “The Role of the Council Secretariat and the European Commission in EU Foreign Policy”, which he defended cum laude in 2011. In this study, he sheds a light on the institutional development and daily practice of foreign policy cooperation in the European Union.

Dr. Hylke Dijkstra received the award in The Hague on 18 April during a ceremony presided over by former Prime Minister Wim Kok. The award was presented to him by Europe Minister Ben Knapen. During the same ceremony, the President of the European Council, Herman van Rompuy, also received an award for his contribution to European politics.

The Otto von der Gablentz Academic Prize is a Dutch award. It is given biennially to a young scholar who has made a significant contribution to the field of European integration or Dutch-German relations. The prize is named after the late ambassador Von der Gablentz, who was the representative of the Federal Republic of Germany in The Netherlands during the 1980s. Von der Gablentz was also closely involved in the process of European integration as a diplomat and as the Rector of the College of Europe. The prize consists of a certificate and € 2.500.

Following the announcement of the award, Dr. Hylke Dijkstra stated that “it is a very great honour to receive this prestigious prize. Ambassador Von der Gablentz was a key figure in EU foreign policy during the 1970s and has been a supporter of European integration ever since”.

Im Focus: The geometry of an electron determined for the first time

Physicists at the University of Basel are able to show for the first time how a single electron looks in an artificial atom. A newly developed method enables them to show the probability of an electron being present in a space. This allows improved control of electron spins, which could serve as the smallest information unit in a future quantum computer. The experiments were published in Physical Review Letters and the related theory in Physical Review B.

The spin of an electron is a promising candidate for use as the smallest information unit (qubit) of a quantum computer. Controlling and switching this spin or...

Im Focus: Self-repairing batteries

UTokyo engineers develop a way to create high-capacity long-life batteries

Engineers at the University of Tokyo continually pioneer new ways to improve battery technology. Professor Atsuo Yamada and his team recently developed a...

Im Focus: Quantum Cloud Computing with Self-Check

With a quantum coprocessor in the cloud, physicists from Innsbruck, Austria, open the door to the simulation of previously unsolvable problems in chemistry, materials research or high-energy physics. The research groups led by Rainer Blatt and Peter Zoller report in the journal Nature how they simulated particle physics phenomena on 20 quantum bits and how the quantum simulator self-verified the result for the first time.

Many scientists are currently working on investigating how quantum advantage can be exploited on hardware already available today. Three years ago, physicists...

Im Focus: Accelerating quantum technologies with materials processing at the atomic scale

'Quantum technologies' utilise the unique phenomena of quantum superposition and entanglement to encode and process information, with potentially profound benefits to a wide range of information technologies from communications to sensing and computing.

However a major challenge in developing these technologies is that the quantum phenomena are very fragile, and only a handful of physical systems have been...

Im Focus: A step towards probabilistic computing

Working group led by physicist Professor Ulrich Nowak at the University of Konstanz, in collaboration with a team of physicists from Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, demonstrates how skyrmions can be used for the computer concepts of the future

When it comes to performing a calculation destined to arrive at an exact result, humans are hopelessly inferior to the computer. In other areas, humans are...
