Professor Barbara Hammer and three European colleagues receive ERC Synergy Grant
Due to the pandemic, digital teaching at German universities has developed rapidly in recent months. Bielefeld University can now make particular use of this upswing for its partnership with higher education institutions in the Canadian region of Alberta, thereby pushing ahead withinternational virtual academic cooperation. The ‘We CAN Virtu-OWL’ project between Eastern Westphalian universities and partner universities in the Alberta region (Canada), which has been approved by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and is led by Bielefeld University, is being funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) with 210,000 euros.
Innovative research and teaching in a network of six young European universities away from the big metropolises: With this vision, the university, together with five partner universities, is applying to become a "European university". What does Europe mean for research, studying and working at university? The question is answered by a researcher, a staff member and a student at the university.
Social media is changing communication just as much as the dissemination of news. Radical positions that used to be voiced in the private sphere can now reach a worldwide audience. The research group "Multimodal Rhetoric in Online Media Communications" at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research (ZiF) at Bielefeld University will investigate how sub-communities and other interested parties create, manage and disseminate information across media platforms. The researchers will focus specifically on the role of language, images and videos in this process. The group starts on May 18, with a virtual opening conference. The aim is to develop analysis tools that will allow us track the development and flow of different kinds of information, particularly false information, across media platforms.[Weiterlesen]
International project to help determine genetic abnormalities
Further funding for the project based in Bielefeld five years after its start
It should be possible for researchers in the life sciences to draw on powerful technological services throughout Germany when they need to analyse large data sets. This is why the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) invested about 80 million euros in a major large-scale project: the German Network for Bioinformatics Infrastructure (de.NBI). Bielefeld University is coordinating the project. On Thursday 13 February, scientists and politicians celebrated the fifth anniversary and the previous successes of the network with a symposium in Berlin. These successes include a distributed cloud infrastructure, eight service centres throughout the nation, and 40 participating bioinformatics groups. The BMBF has now announced continued funding for the de.NBI. Until the end of 2021, Bielefeld University alone will have up to 5.3 million euros at its disposal to continue the project.[Weiterlesen]
Closing conference for joint project on radicalization online
For the next few years, Bielefeld University can continue its work to integrate students and study applicants with a refugee background. The Ministry of Culture and Science (MKW) in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) is making more than 1.2 million euro available to fund the work of the university from now until the end of 2022. The money comes from the programme ‘NRWege ins Studium – Integration von Flüchtlingen an Hochschulen in Nordrhein-Westfalen’ [Ways to study in NRW – Integration of refugees in universities in North Rhine-Westphalia] that is being coordinated by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).[Weiterlesen]
