KfW IPEX-Bank supports exports to Russia
EUR 500 million framework agreement signed

16.07.2009
On the occasion of the German-Russian intergovernmental consultations and in the presence of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev KfW IPEX-Bank today signed a framework loan agreement with the Russian Vnesheconombank (VEB) for EUR 500 million.

The funds will go towards financing German and European exports to Russia over the next two years. Under the agreement export financings to Russia that are backed by export credit insurance (Hermes cover) can be financed via VEB, which can in turn refinance with KfW IPEX-Bank under the credit framework.

The aim is to facilitate financing for deliveries of investment goods to the Russian Federation which are experiencing financing difficulties owing to the current financial crisis. The funds will help to safeguard jobs in Germany's and Europe's export industry while also contributing to broadening the economic relations between Germany and Russia.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
