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

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.
When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...
Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.
Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....
Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.
Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...
Scientists have discovered that the electrical resistance of a copper-oxide compound depends on the magnetic field in a very unusual way -- a finding that could help direct the search for materials that can perfectly conduct electricity at room temperatur
What happens when really powerful magnets--capable of producing magnetic fields nearly two million times stronger than Earth's--are applied to materials that...
The quality of materials often depends on the manufacturing process. In casting and welding, for example, the rate at which melts solidify and the resulting microstructure of the alloy is important. With metallic foams as well, it depends on exactly how the foaming process takes place. To understand these processes fully requires fast sensing capability. The fastest 3D tomographic images to date have now been achieved at the BESSY II X-ray source operated by the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin.
Dr. Francisco Garcia-Moreno and his team have designed a turntable that rotates ultra-stably about its axis at a constant rotational speed. This really depends...
