Winners of the 1st Collaborative European Freshwater Science Project for Young Researchers, (“FreshProject”)
The call for the 1st Collaborative European Freshwater Science Project for Young Researchers, (“FreshProject”) was quite successful and five proposals were submitted to evaluation. All the proposals but one had 2 Principal Investigators from different countries and this gives a good indication about the capacity of international cooperation of European young researchers. A Jury composed by five members among the National Representatives in the Board of the EFFS completed the hard work to assess the proposals. All these were of high scientific value and fulfilled the criteria set in the call. However, one project was unanimously scored as outstanding and selected.
We have thus the pleasure to announce that the competitive call for the 1st Collaborative European Freshwater Science Project for Young Researchers, (“FreshProject”) has now reached the end of the first stage and the winner are:
Katrin Attermeyer (member of DGL) and Pascal Bodmer (member of SGHL).
The title of the selected project is: Assessing CO2 Fluxes from European Running Waters – EuroRun
Katrin Attermeyer got her PhD at the Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries, Neuglobsow, Germany with a doctoral thesis in Aquatic Microbiology under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Hans-Peter Grossart. She has currently a postdoc position at the Uppsala University, Dept. of Ecology & Genetics, Limnology, in the group of Prof. Dr. Lars Tranvik (DFG research fellowship)
Pascal Bodmer is a PhD student at the Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB), Berlin, Germany with a doctoral thesis in Aquatic Biogeochemistry under the supervision of Dr. Katrin Premke (IGB Berlin, Germany), Prof. Alberto Bellin (University of Trento, Italy), PD Dr. Martin Pusch (IGB Berlin, Germany).

As requested in the call, the first results of the granted project will be presented at the next SEFS meeting, which will be held in 2017 in Olomouc (Czech Republic).
Last but not least, we wish to thank all the young researchers who entered the competition and submitted their proposals.
Congratulations to the winners of our call and best wishes for successfully completing their project.
