International Students can get detailed information about study and research opportunities in Germany on a new website now: recently the DAAD expanded its Internet services with the launch of http://www.study-in.de.
Designed as a modern and user-friendly website, it has a large selection of offers in German and English. It features an arsenal of Web 2.0 tools, such as an interactive map of Germany in which users can virtually "travel" to Berlin, a search engine for finding the right master's degree programme and the DAADblog where foreign students can post their impressions and experiences in Germany.Users can also find answers to the most commonly asked questions about life and university study in Germany in ten video clips titled "Student Life", created in cooperation with the University of Mittweida and posted on the DAAD YouTube-channel. For those looking for a more personal contact, the DAAD Fair Ticker informs users about upcoming educational fairs in Germany and abroad. Study-in.de features a clearly-structured, straightforward design.
In addition to basic information about study-related issues, the website strongly focuses on life in Germany in general and gives deeper insights into German day-to-day life. In order to facilitate the start for international students, the DAAD set up a profile on Germany's largest social network "StudiVZ", where they can establish contacts to German students at their hosting university before arriving in Germany.
Study-in.de is financed by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and is closely linked with the "Information for Foreigners" section on http://www.daad.de, which registers more than three million page views per month. Furthermore, study-in.de cooperates with the German Rector's Conference (HRK) for its degree programme search tool. Study-in.de is the website of the "Study in Germany - Land of Ideas" campaign, whose goal is to raise public awareness of Germany as a country of academic excellence and attract more highly qualified foreign students to German universities.Contact:

DNA molecules that follow specific instructions could offer more precise molecular control of synthetic chemical systems, a discovery that opens the door for engineers to create molecular machines with new and complex behaviors.
Researchers have created chemical amplifiers and a chemical oscillator using a systematic method that has the potential to embed sophisticated circuit...
MPQ scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.
Concerning the development of quantum memories for the realization of global quantum networks, scientists of the Quantum Dynamics Division led by Professor...
Researchers have developed a water cloaking concept based on electromagnetic forces that could eliminate an object's wake, greatly reducing its drag while...
Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
