Julius Springer Prize for Applied Physics 2018 awarded to Dutch physicist for his contributions in the field of interface engineering
- 24 Apr 2018

The 2018 Julius Springer Prize for Applied Physics will be awarded to Guus Rijnders of the University of Twente in the Netherlands for his research on pulsed laser deposition (PLD). The award, which includes a prize of US$5,000, will be presented at the Magnus-Haus in Berlin, Germany on October 5, 2018, and will be accompanied by a public lecture given by the winner.

The Julius Springer Prize for Applied Physics recognises researchers who have made an outstanding and innovative contribution to the field of applied physics. It has been awarded annually since 1998 by the editors-in-chief of the Springer journals Applied Physics A - Materials Science&Processing and Applied Physics B - Lasers and Optics. Winners in previous years have included Roland Wiesendanger, Xiang Zhang and Viktor Malka.

Guus Rijnders investigates complex materials, particularly those used in electronic devices, such as brain-inspired electronics and sensors. He focuses on the structure-property relation of atomically engineered complex (nano) materials, especially thin-film ceramic oxides, which include ferromagnetic, ferroelectric as well as piezoelectric materials. Atomic control of such materials enables new functionalities, such as interface conductivity at oxide interfaces and multistate ferroelectrics. As one of the leaders in the field of PLD, and a driving force of interface engineering, Rijnders is one of the few major researchers who openly addresses controversial topics in the field. He has also successfully brought PLD from the laboratory to industry as the co-founder of two companies.

IET announces its annual search for the most pioneering new innovations in engineering and technology
- 11 Apr 2018

The Institution of Engineering and Technology has announced its annual search for the most pioneering new innovations in engineering and technology. The Innovation Awards are free to enter and open to any individual, academic team, company or organisation anywhere in the world with an innovative idea or product.

They provide a unique platform for both budding and established engineering inventors to gain increased and invaluable exposure for their work on a global stage. All shortlisted and winning entries are promoted to the IET's 168,000 members across the globe.

Two new awards are available in 2018: Young Innovators, open to innovators aged 18-35 and focusing on solving a real-world issue; and the E&T Innovation of the Year category, which will be awarded to one of the category winners as an overall winner.

Each category of the Innovation Awards is independently judged by a panel of experts in that field, with the shortlist announced in late September. The winners will be revealed at a black tie dinner and ceremony on Wednesday 14 November 2018 at the Brewery in London.

The deadline for entries is July 6, 2018.

Nature Research and The Estée Lauder Companies launch global awards to celebrate inspirations for women in science
- 10 Apr 2018

With women making up less than a third of the world's researchers and facing barriers to pursuing long-term careers that lead to senior positions in science, Nature Research and The Estée Lauder Companies have launched two global awards that seek to put a spotlight on both exceptional achievements of female scientists and those working to promote greater inclusiveness.

The inaugural Nature Research Awards for Inspiring Science and for Innovating Science, in partnership with The Estée Lauder Companies, will recognise inspirational early-career female researchers and those who have worked to champion women and girls' participation in science. The Inspiring Science Award honours female scientists who have excelled in scientific discovery and have completed their PhD within the last ten years. The Innovating Science Award recognises an individual or an organisation that has led a grassroots initiative to support increased access to, or interest in, STEM subjects for girls and women around the globe.

The winners of the awards will be announced in October. Both winners will receive up to $10,000 to spend on initiatives linked to the award and free training from Nature Masterclasses. The Inspiring Science Award winner will also receive grants of up to $5,200 to support open access publication of their research in a Springer Nature journal, and the Innovating Science Award winner will receive up to $5,200 to support events related to their initiative.

Nominations for the awards opened on April 9 and will close on June 11 2018. A longlist of ten nominees for each award will be announced on July 24, and a shortlist of five will be announced on September 4. Full details of the awards' criteria and nomination processes are available at nature.com/researchawards.

Emerald Publishing and The Beyster Foundation for Enterprise Development launch annual award programme
- 26 Mar 2018

Academic publisher Emerald Publishing, along with The Beyster Foundation for Enterprise Development (BFED) - a development to support research, education and services that advance innovation, entrepreneurship and broad-based ownership, has announced the launch of an annual award programme for excellence in research published in the new Journal of Participation and Employee Ownership (JPEO).

Editors of the JPEO will review all papers published within the journal at the end of every year, selecting one paper to receive the Best Paper Prize for that year. The winning paper and author(s) will be announced the following year and will receive: a plaque, $1,500 award from The Beyster Foundation for Enterprise Development, and recognition at the Beyster Symposium, in June 2019 in La Jolla, California.

The Beyster Symposium is administered by the Program on Employee Ownership and Profit Sharing at Rutgers University's School of Management and Labor Relations, which convenes the largest academic symposium of scholars involved in the interdisciplinary study of employee stock ownership and participation.

This award programme has been designed to identify innovative research in the broad area of employee participation and shared capitalism by emerging scholars in the field, including all early career researchers as well as late career scholars who are new entrants to the field.
