Forum for Excellent Young Scientist: Internet if Things
scientists – 6 pitches – 6 prizes (3x 10,000 EUR / 3x 2,000 EUR)

The annual „Forum for excellent young scientists“, organised by Stiftung Industrieforschung in cooperation with Humboldt-Innovation GmbH, offers an opportunity to young researchers to present their original research results as well as solutions relevant to practical problems.

Six scientists present their research (10 min presentation / 10 min Q&A). In the end, the expert jury decides which of the presentations are most convincing and suitable for (prospective) entrepreneurial practice. The three top presenters will receive 10,000 EUR each to fund their research project. The three remaining participants will each receive 2,000 EUR funding.

All researchers interested in participating in the event can apply by sending in a short summary of their research field, as well as a short CV. The most promising six applications will be chosen among all applicants. Please send your application (a summary of your research and a short CV, ideally as a PDF document) until 2 November 2015 to:

“Science meets business” – Advanced Materials “Science meets business” – Advanced Materials

On 8 December 2015 Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, HUMBOLDT-INNOVATION and Berlin Partner will jointly present the 4th knowledge and technology transfer event of the series Wissenschaft trifft Wirtschaft (WtW, “Science meets business“). This year’s event focusses on Advanced Materials.
Main areas of research:

  • (elementary) particle physics
  • solid state physics
  • macromolecules/complex systems
  • optics/photonics
  • chemical biology
  • functionally structured materials and catalysis

The new event format aims at bringing together research and application. We invite companies to present their research questions in the field of Advanced Materials as a short pitch to an audience of scientists and other (local) businesses. At the event, researchers will have the chance to learn about current and future challenges companies face working with new materials. At the same time, HU scientists from the Integrative Research Institute for the Sciences IRIS Adlershof and the Physics and Chemistry Departments are going to showcase their successful application-oriented research cooperations with third parties. Scientists and companies will have ample opportunity to network and to discuss their research subjects in more detail in the course of the day.

The event will be held in English and participation is free of charge. Space, however, is limited. If you would like to attend, please e-mail Ms Wei (tianni.wei with the following information: name, surname, company/institution, position and e-mail address.
