People who know nothing of interest calculations & Co. rely on friendly advice in financial matters. But is that wise?
They are indispensable in proteins and rubber: bonds between two sulphur atoms that link the long molecules together. If one pulls on the sulphur bridges from outside, unexpectedly complicated processes occur.
Students enjoy it most when they get to make things pop and burn in their chemistry lessons. But do they take away from the experiments what they are supposed to understand?
Nanoparticles could become the key to sustainable energy technologies. Kristina Tschulik has been recently awarded for her research in the field.
In retrospective, it always seems as if gaining new knowledge had been a purposeful process. Christina Brandt can list many examples that prove that this is not true; one of them is the history of cloning.
Science historian Christina Brandt reconstructs the evolution of knowledge. For this purpose, she assumes the role of researchers from decades ago.
An invitation that is not for everyone. Three members of the Cluster of Excellence Resolv will participate.
In Germany, children are separated following four years in primary school. Gabriele Bellenberg criticises this approach. She says: too many children fall by the wayside.
For computers to be able to process the complex knowledge of the world, that knowledge has to be explicitly and logically structured and phrased. Philosophers help to achieve precisely that.
Together with medical informatics and bioinformatics experts, the philosopher is developing computer-based description of the knowledge of the world.
The Bochum-based engineer Alexander Hartmaier is not only involved in his research.
The solvent is far more than just the environment for a chemical reaction.
Nikolai Axmacher discloses the greatest challenges he faced when working with epilepsy patients and why his professional career was not entirely free of risks.
Many people have experienced it in person: a nap after studying helps memorising the new material better. But what kind of processes take place in the brain?
60,000 workers die on construction sites worldwide every year. This number could fall if a new idea by Bochum-based engineers proves to be of use.
Bacteria can transfer energy from one membrane to another. How the proteins responsible for the process are arranged has been a mystery for a long time.
In August, a ranking list was circulated by the media: It suggested that more than half of the fans of the German football team Hamburger SV held a university degree.
Big data could revolutionise the healthcare industry. Yet the collection of mass data also harbours dangers.
Much more happens when dissolving chemical substances than we currently think. What exactly will be discussed by the participants at the Symposium on Theoretical Chemistry. A special emeritus professor will be joining.
Storing power from renewable energy sources is a challenge. Nicolas Plumeré wants to meet that challenge with funding from the European Research Council.
