Das Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg (HWK), die Universität Oldenburg und NEXT ENERGY, EWE-Forschungszentrum für Energietechnologie e.V. veranstalten gemeinsam eine Konferenz vom 04. bis 05. Juni 2015, bei der es um die Frage nach der tatsächlichen Effizienz von Elektromobilität geht.
Erwartet werden internationale Forscher aus den unterschiedlichsten Bereichen von Wissenschaft und Industrie. Sie werden sich mit dem Einsatz von kritischen Materialien und deren Rückgewinnung auseinandersetzen.
An der Organisation beteiligt sind auch Wissenschaftler von der Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China und der University of Waterloo (Kanada).
Im Folgenden die englische Ankündigung der Tagung:
What do we really know about the efficiency of electro mobility? Automobiles for example are becoming lighter, smarter, safer and steadily more electric. Each of these trends will demand new types and new combinations of materials – materials and systems that will be increasingly complex.
The Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg (Institute for Advanced Study, HWK) in Delmenhorst together with the Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg, the EWE Research Centre NEXT ENERGY, and international partners in the P.R. China and Canada organizes an international conference “How Efficient is Electro Mobility”. The conference will be held on June 4 and 5 at the HWK; preceding the conference an excursion to two industrial sites in Bremen will take place (June 3).
This conference explores the future of electro mobility and searches for answers to the “efficiency question”. The future challenges for developers and manufacturers of vehicles may no longer be issues of energy efficiency and fuels.
Instead, new questions will arise regarding the use of new, sometimes scarce and environmentally problematic materials and their role in new drive trains as well as questions about systems integration, especially with the increasing importance of renewable energy and decentralized energy systems. These questions will result in new challenges for the life cycle management of vehicles, materials and systems.
The conference will bring together international researchers from academia and industry in different domains. They shall discuss across disciplinary borders crucial questions related to the energy and material shift in vehicles caused by new drive trains and power sources, such as batteries and fuel cells.
The envisioned integration of vehicles and their batteries into the electricity system further contributes to the mentioned shift as use phases overlap and are becoming indistinct.

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.
Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....
Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.
The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....
An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
