"Practical Polymer Rheology” is the topic of the Geesthacht Polymer Days, held on the 18th and 19th of November 2014, at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (HZG). Rheology refers to the study of flow and deformation of materials. Read the interview here with the organiser and HZG Department Head Dr. Ulrich Handge. He discusses his research, the connection to rheology and the topics of the two-day workshop. more
Innovative ideas "made in Schleswig-Holstein" were awarded on Thursday, 1st of November in the German National Library of Economics (ZBW) in Kiel. The 1000 Euro special award "nanotechnology" was received to the Geesthacht polymer researcher Prof. Dr.-Ing. Mady Elbahri. more
Transparent foils which are conductive and thus use sunlight for generation of energy. Hulls of ships, which no longer rust due to a nano-coating (nano-technology offers numerous surprising solutions for a variety of applications). The new Helmholtz-Group of Academic Talents ‘Nanochemistry and Nanoengineering’ deals intensively with the design and the development of new materials for industrial applications and, as part of the Geesthacht Institute for Polymer Research, the new group thus expands the research programme of the GKSS. more
Mit rund fünf Millionen Euro fördert die Exzellenzinitiative von Bund und Ländern die Berlin-Brandenburg School for Regenerative Therapies (BSRT) bis zum Jahr 2012. Dies gab der gemeinsame Bewilligungsausschuss der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft und des Wissenschaftsrats heute bekannt. Die Graduiertenschule ist eine gemeinsame Initiative von Medizinern, Biologen und Ingenieuren unter Führung der Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin und der Humboldt-Universität. Ebenfalls beteiligen sich das GKSS-Institut für Polymerforschung in Teltow sowie die Universitäten Potsdam, die Freie und die Technische Universität Berlin. more
