When state authorities make a decision, one must know how it was reached. A legal scholar from Bochum investigates how international human rights set legally binding standards for administrative decision-making.
Technologies with low CO2 emissions are the focus of energy transition. However, some of them consume enormous freshwater resources – water that won’t be available in sufficient quantities in many regions in the future.
The chemical scientist has been awarded the Nobel Prize for his groundbreaking contribution to catalyst research. RUB and the RESOLV Cluster extend their heartfelt congratulations on this award!
The University has come up with a pragmatic solution to check the so-called 3G status of people attending seminars and lectures. Anyone who has been vaccinated or has recovered can now get a green vignette.
A single application on African farmland could boost soil quality and yields for years to come.
An economic system that is only designed for output without considering the environment is no longer appropriate today. RUB researchers are developing concepts for a sustainable circular economy.
Only a minority of the world's population has access to social protection systems. This urgently needs to change.
When less than two nanometers of space is available, there is a traffic jam in the proton transport network.
For the first time since 1985, RUB is setting up a new faculty. Computer science is thus given a new significance as a focus of study and research.
Our everyday lives are virtually inconceivable without plasmas. A special edition of Rubin provides insights into their numerous areas of application.
From 20 August 2021, a new Coronavirus Protection Ordinance will apply in NRW. This affects the upcoming exam period and work routines at RUB.
Martin Hoffmann explains why plasma processes are essential for microsystem technology and which opportunities they offer for eco-friendly manufacturing methods.
Martin Muhler from the Chair of Industrial Chemistry explains in what way plasmas are likely to affect chemical reactions in future.
Amir Moradi from the Horst Görtz Institute for IT Security has set a record in the history of the CHES conference.
A few nanometers of thin quartz-like coatings can multiply the shelf life of food, enable brilliant OLED TV pictures or separate gases from each other. When it comes to recycling, they can simply be neglected.
Nature-based solutions for flood protection require space, patience and courage. But it’s worth it.
Julia Bandow, Professor for Applied Microbiology, discusses the future use of plasmas in biological applications.
Researchers calculate in minute detail the processes in plasmas and at the interfaces between plasmas and surfaces. This is how they hope to understand the processes involved and make better use of them in the future.
Uwe Czarnetzki from the Chair of Experimental Physics explains what plasmas can already do and what they are likely to facilitate in the future.
In the University Forum, UFO for short, vaccinations without appointment are again possible on 26 and 27 August 2021.
