Germans do well in the third round of EURYI Awards

This press release is also available in German.

The 25 prizewinners of the third round of the European Young Investigator (EURYI) Award competition have been announced. The young researchers will each receive a maximum of 1.25 million euros to establish independent junior research groups to pursue their projects at research institutions of their choice in Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. Four of the prizewinners applied for the award through the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) to carry out research at German institutes over the next five years. Three German scientists will conduct research at institutions in France, the Netherlands and Switzerland, respectively. The EURYI Awards will be conferred on 13 October 2006 in Prague. The fourth call for proposals will be announced on 1 September of this year.

German award winners in Germany:

Dr. Klaus Hallatschek (35), Natural Sciences, Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics, Garching

Klaus Hallatschek studies turbulence. At first sight turbulence appears to involve the break-up of ordered fluid motion, but in fact many turbulence processes spontaneously reorganise themselves. They thereby behave macroscopically like the BoseEinstein condensate, which, in quantum mechanical systems, responds to extremely low temperatures by suddenly becoming organised. Scientists suspect that such processes are behind the coloured belts of Jupiter, certain ocean currents and plasma in fusion reactors. By understanding the dynamic properties of these flows, Hallatschek hopes to develop the ability to predict their long term behaviour, which might be used for applications in weather forecasting and relating to ocean currents.

Dr. Dieter Chichung Lie (34), Biomedicine, National Research
