Prize: The first microelectronics Blog at Fraunhofer

Science Communication as a Catalyst for Innovation in Microelectronics

Wanted: Your Opinion about the RealIZM Blog!

RealIZM is Fraunhofer’s first blog on microelectronics and more: a knowledge communication platform. For three years now, we have been using our science blog to give the broader expert public a glimpse behind the scenes at the Fraunhofer Institute for Reliability and Microintegration IZM.

At the same time, we offer researchers, experts, and other interested contributors a platform to enter into a digital dialog with each other that can power innovation in microelectronics. This unique approach has been met with a great reception in the field and has won a German Research Foundation award in the “International Research Marketing Ideas Competition”, right on time to mark our third anniversary.

Our winning bid for the “Ideas Competition International Research Marketing” of the German Research Foundation (DFG) was originally for the year 2019, but due to the pandemic, the award ceremony was rescheduled to take place in Berlin on September 21, 2022. On behalf of the editorial team, I accepted the award from Dr. Harald von Kalm, Head of Department of International Affairs and Integrative Activities, at the BMBF forum “Research-in-Germany”.

Speaking for the editorial team, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, our readers and authors: A science blog only works if it offers high-quality content, content that is also read and sparks a digital debate and more collaboration with researchers and experts from all over the world. With 58 experts, we have now published more than 60 articles. So far, we have been able to inspire 400 newsletter subscribers with our contributions. Thank you for your participation and support!

I encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity that our blog continues to offer you. Reach out to other scientists, innovators, and visionaries from across the globe. Start a conversation and share your experiences.

Our editorial team is interested in your opinions

We always want to become even better, which is why I would like to ask you to participate in our survey. With your vote, you have the opportunity to help shape RealIZM. I would be pleased if you took a moment and sent us your feedback by October 7, 2022.

Thank you, and here’s to an exciting fourth year!

Professor Martin Schneider-Ramelow
