Stimulators of vitality are aimed to reinforce plant resistance against biotic and abiotic stresses and to optimize their growth and development. They include plant resistance inducers (PRIs) and bios
(New) Political Representative Claims: A Global View (France, Germany, Brazil, China, India) – CLAIM
This project addresses the present (and pressing) problem of how (new) “representative claims” (Saward 2010) can be conceptualized and comprehended within political systems based on electoral or party representation, from a global perspective. Most citizens no longer believe that elections and parties guarantee their ‘being represented’. A multitude of representative claims have emerged, that require to be analyzed within a renewed conceptual framework.
2D UV spectroscopy: A new tool for the investigation of ultrafast processes in biomolecules – Femto-2DNA
Femtosecond two-dimensional electronic spectroscopy (2DES) is a novel nonlinear optics technique holding promises to track the interactions in a multichromophoric systems with unprecedented time and s
The 948 has produced many exciting and valuable results so far. One of the main obstacles for real uptake in the industry however is the lack of scalable processes for making large area, high quality
In the context of the energetic transition, eco-friendly industrial strategy, sustainable growth and renewable energies, new catalysts are required in order to accelerate or guide reactions allowing m
Neurological disorders represent a significant portion of the global disease burden as well as a large cost to society. Most, if not all, neurological disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease (AD) are
3D-numerical Simulation of the Laser Sintering processing of thermoplastic powders for the prediction of microstructural features and part warpage – 3D-SLS
This project deals with the selective laser sintering (SLS) process, in which plastic parts are manufactured layer by layer by melting thermoplastic polymer powder with a laser beam. Like the other ad
A 3D study of the plasticity in deformed polycrystals based on diffraction experiments and crystal-plasticity simulations – 3DPLASTICITY
Strain localization in deformed polycrystalline materials is of major importance for a large number of physical phenomena occurring during the lifetime of a material, such as fatigue, rupture or corrosion cracking. The early state of plastic deformation of a material is of strong interest on the one hand because it is encountered during severe loading conditions, and on the other hand because particularly strong strain heterogeneities occur, as only some grains deform plastically.
In living organisms, the ability of cells to move across surfaces (cell motility) is a universal feature of multicellularity. In eukaryots, cell motility is essential a different stages of embryogenes
