The German Research Foundation (DFG) has approved a new Collaborative Research Centre (CRC): in CRC 1128 “Relativistic geodesy and gravimetry with quantum sensors (geo-Q)”, scientists will undertake interdisciplinary basic research on trend-setting procedures to measure the earth and its constant alterations, including climate change.
German Research Foundation provides 3.9 million Euros in funding for Research Training Group at Leibniz Universität Hannover
The German Research Foundation (DFG) has approved around 3.9 million Euros for the new Research Training Group “Quantum-mechanical noise in complex systems”. The objective is to explore intrinsic quantum-mechanical noise in basic physical systems. The interdisciplinary research training group will be launched on 1 October 2014, and will initially run until 31 March 2019.
A team of researchers at the Institute of Multiphase Processes is working on new ways to permanently store biomaterial in a dry state in biobanks. Instead of storing biomaterial at low temperatures with the use of liquid nitrogen, scientists are working on a method for dry storing biomaterial at room temperature.
