EMBO awards Installation Grants to seven talented European researchers

05.12.2011
EMBO today announces the selection of seven scientists as recipients of the 2011 EMBO Installation Grants. The grants will assist the researchers to relocate and set up laboratories in the Czech Republic, Poland, Estonia and Turkey.

EMBO today announces the selection of seven scientists as recipients of the 2011 EMBO Installation Grants. The grants will assist the researchers to relocate and set up laboratories in the Czech Republic, Poland, Estonia and Turkey.

"The EMBO Installation Grants directly support young scientists in countries actively developing fundamental research capacity," said Gerlind Wallon, Installation Grants Programme Manager and EMBO Deputy Director. "The grants benefit not only the talented scientists who receive support but also the countries where they establish laboratories."

A committee of EMBO Members selects the successful candidates for the high standard of their research. "By helping these scientists set up their research laboratories in the participating countries, EMBO hopes to improve the competitiveness of these countries in European science," said Wallon.

The scientists receive 50,000 euros annually for three to five years from their host countries. This helps them to establish their research groups and themselves in the European scientific community.

Grantees are also integrated into the prestigious EMBO Young Investigator Programme, which provides networking opportunities with some of Europe's best young group leaders and a range of career development programmes.

With these newly elected grantees, the number of researchers funded by EMBO Installation Grants since the inception of the programme in 2006 increases to 48. Three of the new grantees will move from the USA to establish research groups in Turkey, one moves from Germany to Poland, one from the UK to the Czech Republic, one from the USA to Estonia and one from the USA to Poland. Three of the seven scientists are women.

The awardees are Tolga Emre (Turkey), Ebru Erbay (Turkey), Nurhan Özlü (Turkey), Kvido Støíšovský (Czech Republic), Tambet Teesalu (Estonia), Bartosz Wilczyñski (Poland) and Dorota Wloga (Poland).

The next application deadline for EMBO Installation Grants is 15 April 2012.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Klima-Satellit: Mit robuster Lasertechnik Methan auf der Spur

Hitzewellen in der Arktis, längere Vegetationsperioden in Europa, schwere Überschwemmungen in Westafrika – mit Hilfe des deutsch-französischen Satelliten MERLIN wollen Wissenschaftler ab 2021 die Emissionen des Treibhausgases Methan auf der Erde erforschen. Möglich macht das ein neues robustes Lasersystem des Fraunhofer-Instituts für Lasertechnologie ILT in Aachen, das eine bisher unerreichte Messgenauigkeit erzielt.

Methan entsteht unter anderem bei Fäulnisprozessen. Es ist 25-mal wirksamer als das klimaschädliche Kohlendioxid, kommt in der Erdatmosphäre aber lange nicht...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
