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:

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...
