Quo Vadis Biogenic Phosphors?

Quo Vadis Biogenic Phosphors?

White light-emitting diodes (WLEDs) consist of a blue-light emitting chip that is covered with yellow-emitting inorganic phosphors based on rare-earth or toxic materials that are regulated by a few countries. Indeed, they are one of the most critical bottlenecks when trying to ensure the sustainable development of WLEDs.

New Study Shows how to Improve Public’s COVID19 Health-Preserving Attitudes

New Study Shows how to Improve Public’s COVID19 Health-Preserving Attitudes

The outbreak of COVID-19 caused governments and researchers around the globe to follow two main routes in order to address the crisis and reduce effective reproduction numbers of the virus: (1) impose restrictions, closures and emergency regulations, and (2) search for a vaccine and effective medication.A new study, in which Prof. Dr. Sebastian Goerg, Professor for Economics at the Straubing Campus for Biotechnology and Sustainability and a researcher at the Technical University of Munich was involved, follows a third route that focuses on individuals’ attitudes and the development of health promoting motivations of the public.

Wind energy analysis has new implications for manufacturing, supply chain, and industrial policy

Wind energy analysis has new implications for manufacturing, supply chain, and industrial policy

A new study published today in Nature Energy, Effects of technology complexity on the emergence and evolution of wind industry manufacturing locations along global value chains, examines the relationship between characteristics of wind turbine technology and the manufacturing location for various components of the turbine—from high-complexity components, such as blades and gearboxes, to low-complexity components, such as towers and generators.

A Digital Summer Semester 2020 – New Formats and Innovative Tools

A Digital Summer Semester 2020 – New Formats and Innovative Tools

Students at the TUM School of Management have coped quite well with the switch to digital learning formats for this past summer semester. How about our professors? How have they adapted to online teaching? What particular challenges came with the transition to online tools, and how did their lectures differ from their regular lectures on-site? We asked some of our professors at TUM School of Management.

Following the UN model: United Sustainability Council meets in Straubing

Following the UN model: United Sustainability Council meets in Straubing

How can we succeed in realising a global sustainability strategy that will protect life on our planet? Anyone dealing with this topic must develop an understanding for the situation of other people and cultures and their respective problems. Young people and young scientists can learn this empathy, for example, in simulations that deal with the work of the United Nations (UN).
