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
All statements in this press release which are not of a historical character refer to the future in the sense of U.S. security law. 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.

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.
The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...
For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
