The information portal "Education worldwide" now contains more comprehensive, up-to-date contents and a more flexible, user-friendly browsing structure.
This progressive step is based on the integration of the portal - which is provided by the German Institute for International Educational Research (DIPF) - into the association of portals of the German Education Server as well as a relaunch of the portal's technology and design.
"The portal offers well-structured professional information regarding international developments in education at a glance, addressing research and practice", explains Gertrude Cseh, academic staff member at the DIPF, who is responsible for "Education worldwide".
As one of its new features, "Education worldwide" now collects selected international information from seven fields subsumed under the heading "Topics": General Information, Early Childhood Education and Care, School Education, Vocational Education and Training, Higher Education, Adult Education and Science/Research. Moreover, users can access diverse databases, including "Education Systems International", the renowned "German Education Index" and the documentation of newspaper articles on education.
These databases provide the framework for subsuming different information resources, including print media and online resources, under the umbrella of the information system. Topics are presented in depth in the dossiers supplementing the information service.
The site is transparently structured into three columns. The left-hand column provides access to the topics, databases and dossiers. In the column in the centre, users will find current information on the homepage of the portal while the space represents respective contents on subordinate pages.
In the right-hand column, "Education worldwide" presents links to numerous external services. Searches can now be conducted across the entire information service. Nevertheless, users can still limit their search queries to selected databases, topics or educational domains. The browsing structure and help texts are available in English, French and German.Further information
The DIPF is one of currently 86 research and research-service institutes as well as four associated members of the Leibniz Association. The Leibniz Institutes address the scope of natural, engineering and world sciences as well as economic, social and space sciences and human science. Leibniz Institutes operate strategically and thematically on questions relevant to society as a whole. Therefore, institutes belonging to the Leibniz Association are jointly funded by the federal government and the states. For further information see: www.leibniz-gemeinschaft.de.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
