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

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: Neue Messung verschärft altes Problem

Seit Jahrzehnten rätseln Astrophysiker über zwei markante Röntgen-Emissionslinien von hochgeladenem Eisen: ihr gemessenes Helligkeitsverhältnis stimmt nicht mit dem berechneten überein. Das beeinträchtigt die Bestimmung der Temperatur und Dichte von Plasmen. Neue sorgfältige, hoch-präzise Messungen und Berechnungen mit modernsten Methoden schließen nun alle bisher vorgeschlagenen Erklärungen für diese Diskrepanz aus und verschärfen damit das Problem.

Heiße astrophysikalische Plasmen erfüllen den intergalaktischen Raum und leuchten hell in Sternatmosphären, aktiven Galaxienkernen und Supernova-Überresten....
