Published 31. August 2017
Bielefeld University and the Bertelsmann Foundation offer the first ever programme of its kind in NRW

Twenty-five trained teachers who had to flee from their home countries have started the ‘Lehrkräfte Plus’ programme at Bielefeld University. Over the coming 12 months, 8 women and 17 men from Afghanistan, Armenia, Guinea, Iraq, Pakistan, and Syria will be gaining further qualifications that will potentially qualify them to work in schools in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW). ‘Lehrkräfte Plus’ is a joint training programme at Bielefeld University in cooperation with the NRW Ministry of Education and Training and the State Coordination Office for Local Integration Centres in NRW. A further partner in the first ever programme of its kind in the federal state is the Bertelsmann Foundation.[Weiterlesen]

New funding for project run by Bielefeld University and the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga
    
Prof. Dr. Heinz Streib

With new funding, the psychology of religion teams at Bielefeld University (Germany) and University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (USA) are able to expand and deepen their research on religious development over the life-span. The researchers working with Heinz Streib at Bielefeld University and Ralph W. Hood at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga will therefore be able to expand their sample and extend their longitudinal investigation. The John Templeton Foundation  is providing 1.25 million Euro in funding for the new project phase as of 2018.[Weiterlesen]

Towards environmentally friendly production of active pharmaceutical ingredients with a flow reactor

Published 7. August 2017
Chemists at Bielefeld University working on new production methods

Prof. Dr. Harald Gröger arbeitet in „ONE-FLOW“ an einem Herstellungsverfahren für chemische Substanzen durch Kombination von Bio- und Chemokatalyse in Flow-Reaktoren. Die chemi-schen Reaktionen werden zum Beispiel in Kassetten mit Strömungsrohren (Bild) durchgeführt.

Mostly, the chemical industry still follows very extensive procedures when producing active pharmaceutical ingredients and other complex substances. Often, each intermediate has to be produced in a separate fashion within large reactor vessels. Chemists at Bielefeld University are working on an alternative together with international project partners: the flow method. This combines the production stages and proceeds in microreactors in which the desired substance can be produced without intermediate isolations. The European Union’s research programme is funding the project ‘ONE-FLOW’ with a total of four million Euros. Bielefeld University has now succeeded in gaining a scientist from the renowned Keio University (Japan) for the project. Dr. Yasunobu Yamashita has started his work on the project at the beginning of August.[Weiterlesen]
