13th Zsigmondy Colloquium of the German Colloid Society

A meeting for younger scientists from the fields of colloid, surface and interface research. It mainly aims at researchers at the pre- and post-doc level wishing to present their findings via lectures or poster contributions. The goal of the colloquium is to create a platform for the exchange between research institutes and industry

Opening ceremony of a new course of study: BachelorPlus MINT

The opening of the new course of study BachelorPlus MINT was celebrated in the University's Graduate Center. This new course of study offers a two-semester orientation phase providing an insight to all the science subjects for the students to facilitate their decision for one MINT Bachelor degree program. Our institute participated in designing the concept of this program honored by the "Studienstiftung" .
