Helmholtz awards research prizes and flexible research stays

28.06.2013
The Helmholtz Association has awarded the Helmholtz International Fellow Award to 13 outstanding researchers. In addition to receiving funding of €20,000 each, the researchers are also invited to conduct research at one or more Helmholtz Centres. The timing of their research is flexible. The Helmholtz International Fellow Award honours excellent research and helps to establish new cooperation structures with international research institutions.

“We award the Helmholtz International Fellow Awards to researchers who have made an outstanding contribution to our research fields,” says Jürgen Mlynek, President of the Helmholtz Association.

“We also aim to work with the best minds in science in order to pool our expertise and thus accelerate the search for solutions to the major challenges of our day.” Through their work, the Helmholtz Fellows also act as ambassadors for the Helmholtz Association.

The award is not aimed only at researchers – it is also awarded to science managers based outside Germany who have excelled in fields relevant to the Helmholtz Association. Candidates must be nominated for the award by a Helmholtz Centre working in the same research field as the respective candidates. The quality of the candidates’ research is the most important criterion for the award. Nominations may be made at any time. The Helmholtz Executive Committee selects the award winners.
The following researchers have received a Helmholtz International Fellow Award:

Prof. Chen Hesheng, Director of the Beijing Electron Positron Collider National Laboratory, Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP), Chinese Academy of Sciences (China), nominated by Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron DESY

Prof. Yu Yuehui, Vice Director of the Shanghai Institute of Microsystem and Information Technology at the Chinese Academy of Sciences (China), nominated by Forschungszentrum Jülich

Prof. Craig Manning, Professor at the Department of Earth and Space Sciences at the University of California (USA), nominated by the Helmholtz Centre Potsdam ‒ German Research Centre for Geosciences – GFZ

Prof. Valerie Mizrahi, Director of the Institute of Infectious Disease and Molecular Medicine at the University of Cape Town (South Africa), nominated by the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research

Prof. Pascale Cossart, Professeur Classe Exceptionnelle at the Institut Pasteur (France), nominated by the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research

Dr Emmanuelle Tsitrone, scientific advisor for fusion to the High Commissioner of CEA (France), nominated by the Max-Planck-Institut für Plasmaphysik

Prof. Zev Levin, Professor Emeritus at Tel Aviv University (Israel) and Professor at the Cyprus Institute (Cyprus), nominated by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)

Prof. Yehudit Bergman, Professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem Medical School (Israel), nominated by the Max Delbruck Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) Berlin-Buch

Prof. Yoram Rubin, Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of California (USA), nominated by the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research – UFZ
The Helmholtz Association contributes to solving major challenges facing society, science and the economy with top scientific achievements in six research fields: Energy; Earth and Environment; Health; Key Technologies; Structure of Matter; and Aeronautics, Space and Transport. With just under 34,000 employees in 18 research centres and an annual budget of approximately €3.4 billion, the Helmholtz Association is Germany’s largest scientific organisation. Its work follows in the tradition of the great natural scientist Hermann von Helmholtz (1821-1894).

Im Focus: Löschbare Tinte für den 3-D-Druck

Im 3-D-Druckverfahren durch Direktes Laserschreiben können Mikrometer-große Strukturen mit genau definierten Eigenschaften geschrieben werden. Forscher des Karlsruher Institus für Technologie (KIT) haben ein Verfahren entwickelt, durch das sich die 3-D-Tinte für die Drucker wieder ‚wegwischen‘ lässt. Die bis zu hundert Nanometer kleinen Strukturen lassen sich dadurch wiederholt auflösen und neu schreiben - ein Nanometer entspricht einem millionstel Millimeter. Die Entwicklung eröffnet der 3-D-Fertigungstechnik vielfältige neue Anwendungen, zum Beispiel in der Biologie oder Materialentwicklung.

Beim Direkten Laserschreiben erzeugt ein computergesteuerter, fokussierter Laserstrahl in einem Fotolack wie ein Stift die Struktur. „Eine Tinte zu entwickeln,...

Im Focus: Leichtbau serientauglich machen

Immer mehr Autobauer setzen auf Karosserieteile aus kohlenstofffaserverstärktem Kunststoff (CFK). Dennoch müssen Fertigungs- und Reparaturkosten weiter gesenkt werden, um CFK kostengünstig nutzbar zu machen. Das Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) hat daher zusammen mit der Volkswagen AG und fünf weiteren Partnern im Projekt HolQueSt 3D Laserprozesse zum automatisierten Besäumen, Bohren und Reparieren von dreidimensionalen Bauteilen entwickelt.

Automatisiert ablaufende Bearbeitungsprozesse sind die Grundlage, um CFK-Bauteile endgültig in die Serienproduktion zu bringen. Ausgerichtet an einem...

Im Focus: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
