Joerg Wrachtrup Jörg Wrachtrup receives the Max Planck Research Award

Very special rules apply in the nanoworld – the laws of quantum physics. And because Robert J. Schoelkopf and Jörg Wrachtrup have been exploiting them in a very ingenious way, for example to make headway with quantum information technology, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft have decided to honour them this year with the Max Planck Research Award.

Schienenfahrzeug Energy transmission for railroad vehicles without overhead wires

Anyone who frequently uses trains knows this to be true: overhead lines are prone to faults, increasingly leading to delays and cancellations. An alternative to this is energy transmission without overhead lines. In the framework of the Allianz DLR@Uni-Stuttgart, scientists from two institutes at the University of Stuttgart as well as the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) are researching inductive (contact-free) systems that are to replace the overhead lines one day. For this purpose the State of Baden-Württemberg has set aside 860,000 Euros. Mehr...

First independent combined university course with a university abroad

The University of Stuttgart has paired up with one of the most significant technical universities in the world, the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta (USA) to create a joint master’s degree in Maschinenbau/ Mechanical Engineering. From the fall semester 2014/15 masters students from the University of Stuttgart and Georgia Tech will have the opportunity to study two semesters at their ‘home’ university and two semesters at the partner university. This will give them the possibility of gaining a joint degree from two of the most renowned universities. Mehr...

Arena 2036 Start of the research campus ARENA2036

The launch event of the flexible research factory ARENA2036 for the automobile of the future on 3 rd June 2014 on the university campus Vaihingen was attended by 150 distinguished guests from academia, business and politics with the State President Winfried Kretschmann. Partners from academia and business will work together in the research building being built there with financial and political support from the German state and the State of Baden-Württemberg in order to achieve the goal of realising new, resourceful and competitive production models by 2036, which is also the 150 th anniversary of the automobile. Through the research factory for the car of the future with an investment volume of 30 million Euros, 160 new jobs for highly qualified academics will be created, where they will work on versatile production and functionally integrated fibre composite lightweight constructions in the series production of automobiles.
