Making science more visible

A science stele on the forecourt of the central station symbolically shows the diversity of Braunschweig´s research landscape. Over the next two months, “Sciencons” will be presenting top local research to all arriving visitors. Of course, TU Braunschweig will be there.

► Europe’s quantum conference comes to Lower Saxony

The Quantum Valley Lower Saxony is hosting the European Quantum Technologies Conference (EQTC). From 16 to 20 October, the leading heads of the quantum community will come together at the Hannover Convention Center – and will also pay a visit to the laboratories of our core research area metrology.

► Regeneration tissue

Developing an implant that uses therapeutic proteins to enable regeneration of the tendon-bone junction, for example from shoulder injuries, is the goal of a collaborative project. Leonie Berten-Schunk from the Department of Pharmaceutics gives insight into her work.

► Congratulations

… to Professor Ute Daniel! The researcher from the Institute of Historical Studies has been awarded the City of Münster’s Historian’s Prize, which is endowed with 15,000 euros. She is the first woman to receive the prize, which has been awarded eight times since 1981.

► The electric power systems of the future

The Junior Research Group “Wiring Technologies” focuses on research questions concerning the design of on-board networks, wiring harnesses and new wiring concepts for power systems. In the current newsletter of the Junior Research Groups, the team presents itself and its research.

► Software and hardware architecture for future vehicle

The AUTOtech.agil network, funded by the BMBF with 25 million euros, has set itself the goal of developing intelligent and networked vehicles. The nine participating universities and other automotive developers also include TU Institutes of Control Engineering and of Computer and Network Engineering.

► A home for new ideas

“Besser Smart”, the innovation portal of the City of Braunschweig, reports on the Project House in its latest article. Julius Othmer, Head of the Project House, presents the work of the three teams, among other things.

► QuantumFrontiers MasterClass in Istanbul

One month before the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria, three TU researchers inspired 58 school students in Istanbul with an insight into the topics of the Cluster of Excellence QuantumFrontiers and answered questions about studying in Germany.

► Promoting digital international teaching together

The final event of the ProDiGI funding rounds will take place on 20 February at 10:30 am, open to the public. The funded teaching projects will present a variety of ideas for the (further) development of international digital teaching.

► With OpenData to more safety in cycling

The team of students and employees of the Sandkasten project OpenBikeSensor Braunschweig has completed more sensors that measure the distance of bicycles to motorized traffic. Cyclists can borrow the devices and help improve the cycling infrastructure.

► Neural Art Contest

In the “Advanced Practice Course Data Science” of the Institute of Analysis and Algebra, students created exciting images using AI methods. Which one do you like best? You can vote on the 21 pictures until the end of February.

► Congratulations

… to Professor Dietmar Brandes! For his services in science and teaching in the field of botany and for the Association of Friends of the Braunschweig Botanical Garden, he was appointed the first honorary member of the association.

► PhD Finishing Grant for Women

Professors and the female doctoral candidates they supervise can apply to the Equal Opportunity Office by 1 March for a PhD Finishing Grant. The prerequisite is that the completion of the doctorate is delayed for family reasons, among other things, and the previous funding has expired.

► Founding of an LGBTQ+ employee network

All employees who consider themselves part of the LGBTQ+ community or ally are invited to the founding on March 21 at 4 p.m. in the Equal Opportunity Office, Bültenweg 17.

► A weekly market on our campus?

In order to bring this idea to life, the project is still looking for participants who would like to contribute their ideas and realise the market. Anyone who would like to join in can contact the Campus Market team via the Sandkasten platform.

► Darling of the week

Whether you’re a carnival fan or not, this year you should be at the Braunschweig Schoduvel. On 19 February, the Institute for Architecture-related Art and the Braunschweig University of Art (HBK) will be among the jesters with their joint project “Carnival*Diversity”. They are participating with two floats and a 60-person foot group. Well then: Brunswiek Helau!
