The joint project under the auspices of the University of Bonn and participation of the University of Cologne and the Bonn International Center for Conversion (BICC) investigates changes in land use in rural Africa. The regional research focus of the new Collaborative Research Center is on the Kenyan Rift Valley, the Agricultural Growth Corridor in southern Tanzania, and the transboundary Kavango Zambezi Park in southern Africa. The scientists are investigating how the seemingly contradictory processes of agricultural intensification on the one hand and the expansion of nature conservation areas on the other affect the future change in land use.

The Bronze Age Mycenean palaces in Greece were not destroyed by a catastrophic earthquake, as previously widely accepted. No one knows exactly why the Mycenaean palaces ended around 1200 BC; also a mega-earthquake or an "earthquake storm" at the end of the Bronze Age were accepted.
