In many cases, the fields of work available to young scientists and engineers in industry are as attractive for entry-level employees as they are unfathomable. The demands made of entry-level employees are growing; the technical processes and apparatus are ever more complex.
Industrial companies complain that, in spite of their high-level qualifications from school, study and at technical college, applicants often have an incorrect grasp, or no idea at all, about the positions on offer and the research and production processes that take place.
Together with the industry, FIZ CHEMIE wants to close this gap. The non-profit-making scientific infrastructure facility of the Leibniz Community offers companies the opportunity to present, at a scientific level of quality, their working processes and the resources, technical equipment and procedures used in them within a framework of "Industrial Learning Units" (ILUs) on ChemgaPedia. With an average of 350,000 users each month, ChemgaPedia is the most-visited scientific and technical training platform in the German-speaking area.
The companies INMATEC, KNAUER, ORGENTEC and Heraeus are making the first move. The first five ILUs created with these industrial partners will be activated for public access in ChemgaPedia at the end of August, at the 3rd EuCheMS chemistry conference in Nuremberg (29.08. to 02.09.2010). http://www.chemgapedia.de/vsengine/cpindustry/de/index.htmlIn its ILU, INMATEC GaseTechnologie GmbH Co. KG, a manufacturer of nitrogen and oxygen generators, as well as a supplier of technical and medical gases, is presenting methods and procedures for nitrogen generation for inertisation in industrial production procedures, as carried out by companies in their own production.
The training content is created by specialists at the company. The CHEMGAROO specialist editors provide technical and didactic support. In their design, the learning units integrate seamlessly into the existing learning material in ChemgaPedia, which presents specialist content clearly, interactively and comprehensibly through the combination of text, animation, videos and graphics. Thanks to free, online access, the content is available at any time from any place. Dr. Kirsten Hantelmann, Product Manager of e-learning at FIZ CHEMIE, sees great potential for recruiting staff through this new way of presenting fields of work. "Through ChemgaPedia, companies in the chemical-pharmaceutical industry and associated areas can reach exactly the target group from which they may obtain their future specialist employees. ChemgaPedia is used by students, pupils and educators in almost all scientific and technical places of training in Germany. Conversely, those looking for work can anonymously gain a practical picture at any time of the research and production processes taking place in companies to which they may want to apply."More information

The predictive statements are assumptions which are based on the current state of information and consequently are subject to particular uncertainty factors. Events which actually occur can deviate considerably from those predicted due to many factors, for example as a result of changes in technology, product development or production, market acceptance, costs or prices for products of FIZ CHEMIE and dependence on alliances and partners, approval processes, competition, intellectual property or patent protection and copyrights.

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event
On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...
Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.
Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....
Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).
When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.
How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...
Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.
It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
