EURYI award 2005

The European Young Investigator (EURYI) Award, which is worth up to 1.25 million, has this year once again been awarded to outstanding young researchers. The 25 prizewinners will establish independent junior research groups to conduct research on their selected topics at research institutions of their choice in Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Hungary, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and Germany. Three of the recipients applied for the prize through the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) to carry out research at German institutes over the next five years.

Irish chemist Angelos Michaelides will go to the Fritz Haber Institute in Berlin, where he will be able to use the latest quantum chemical simulations at the atomic level to find out how water interacts with fixed surfaces. These insights are important for subjects as varied and fundamental as the way fuel cells work, the chemistry of the troposphere, global warming, corrosion and catalysis and the operation of so-called nanomachines.

The project "Quantum transport in nanostructures" by Russian theoretical physicist Igor Gornyi focuses on one of the most difficult problems in solid state physics . Its aim is to develop a coherent picture of electronic transport in lower-dimension structures. This is important for the rapidly growing field of nanotechnology, in particular in semiconductor nanoelectronics and in molecular electronics, which is based on nano test tubes. Gornyi will set up his independent junior research group at the Institute for Theory of Condensed Matter at the University of Karlsruhe.

Lucas L. Pelkmans, a Dutch cell biologist, studies the underlying mechanisms of endocytosis, the processes by which cells internalise substances and larger structures. Originally, he wanted to establish his independent junior research group at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Dresden, where he cu
