International research team has, for the first time, detected traces of Freon-40 in a young stellar system and comets with Cologne participation / publication in "Nature Astronomy"

 

A research team with scientists from among others from Cambridge / Massachusetts, Copenhagen and Cologne has for the first time demonstrated a significant concentration of Freon-40 in a young star system about 400 years ago. The high-resolution images of the ALMA radiotelescopes in the Chilean Atacama desert as well as data from the ROSINA mass spectrometer from the Rosetta space mission served as a data basis.

 

The € 25,000 prize for university communication 2017 goes to the University of Cologne. 
This year, the prize was issued on the subject of "Knowledge for the Society: Presenting Higher Education Research". Universities pursue research on diverse, socially discussed topics. This is connected with the task of communicating with the various concerned and interested groups, feeding the results into the ongoing discussions by suitable means, and enabling people to participate in the social discourse in a qualified way. Faced with an increasing shift away from differentiated, fact-based disputes, the universities face growing challenges.

Climate change, urbanization, industry advancement and associated pollution, and growing world population are constantly raising the demand for water resources. Water scarcity has increasingly received attention as being a severe threat to human well-being and to the safety of the planet.In India and in Germany, scholars and practitioners stress the need for a new paradigm in water management and governance, the overarching goal in the water domain being water security.The DWIH flagship annual symposium ‘WaterScapes’ aims at bringing together eminent scholars, leading experts and practitioners from Germany and India. In a knowledge transfer environment that bridges science, policy and practice, the participants will present their work, initiatives and ideas, exchange their views and approaches, and jointly seek for commonalities and innovative solutions (e.g., transforming hazards into opportunities) to secure a sustainable and efficient water resource management.
