Cooperation with ILU e.V.

We are pleased to announce our cooperation with Institut für Lebensmittel- und Umweltforschung e.V. (ILU). With the help of a 115 photobioreactor, we are now able to focus on the targeted optimisation of biomass production. In this context, online sensor technology will be implemented to characterise the light distribution in the photobioreactor and to monitor growth processes.

Successful 4th innoFSPEC team workshop

From Oct 1st to Oct 2nd, the entire innoFSPEC team came together for the fourth team workshop in Bad Belzig.

On the first day, the team enjoyed a key note talk on galactic archaeology given by Prof. Matthias Steinmetz, director of the Leibniz Institute of Astrophysics in Potsdam. Besides, in separate sessions the innoFSPEC team discussed current research projects and topics such as 3D modeling and printing, on how to design experiments or on static light scattering. And in plenary sessions all participants learned more about cultural diversity and communication in science and expanded their knowledge in proposal writing and funding opportunities.

Exciting topics were discussed, new questions raised and ideas for cooperative projects developed. We are looking forward to the next workshop in order to push this further!

Congratulations to our colleague Stephanie Schlappa! She was accepted as one of 18 participants to present at the event FALLING WALLS LAB on September 28th in Berlin-Adlershof. The Lab is the North German qualification round for the FALLING WALLS CONFERENCE - The International Conference on Future Breakthroughs in Science and Society on November 8th & 9th in Berlin. As part of our innoFSPEC tech transfer activities she will present our Joint Labs project in only 3 minutes and provide thereby an answer to the question WHICH ARE THE NEXT WALLS TO FALL? Our fingers are tightly crossed.
