Dr.-Ing. Stefan Manuel Schaut is one of nine young scientists from Baden-Württemberg who received the Advancement Award of the employers' association of the metal and electronic industry ("Südwestmetall-Förderpreis"). Schaut received the award for his dissertation at the University of Stuttgart on the subject of "Optimization-based strategies for thermal management in electric vehicles". In his dissertation, Schaut shows that one of the reasons for the overall still hesitant change to electric vehicles is the lower and less calculable range.
With this award, Südwestmetall has been honoring outstanding achievements by young academics at the nine state universities in Baden-Württemberg for over 30 years.
The European Research Council (ERC) awarded Dr. Tim Langen from the 5th Institute of Physics and Dr. Marcel Pfeiffer from the Institute of Space Systems (IRS) at the University of Stuttgart one of the coveted ERC starting grants. The grants, each valued at EUR 1.5 million, are designed to support outstanding early career researchers in groundbreaking and visionary research. With the ERC Proof of Concept grant, Prof. Majid Hassanizadeh, a long-standing cooperation partner of the Department of Hydromechanics and Modeling of Hydrosystems as well as of the Collaborative Research Center (SFB) 1313, received a funding that enables past winners to take first steps towards technology transfer.
From master's thesis to startup – this is how 26-year-old Paul Eichinger sees his next step after recently completing his master’s degree at the Institute for Control Engineering of Machine Tools and Manufacturing Units (ISW) at the University of Stuttgart. His idea is the same as the topic of his master's thesis: “Developing a process chain for the automated manufacturing of personalized computer mice”. Along with the economist Andreas Schulz and the software developer Christian Renninger, he is now applying for a startup grant to bring the process to market in a planned startup.
The new issue of “forschung leben” deliberates the topic of “responsibility” as a research maxim. The focus is on researchers from the University of Stuttgart, who work at the interface between natural and engineering sciences and humanities and social sciences. Their research activities and findings constantly reflect and consider the economic, social, and cultural implications of their work.
How can we ensure that unfair or discriminating decision-making is prevented when using artificial intelligence? How do the ‘gene scissors’ CRISPR-Cas9 accelerate medical research, and should we involve laymen and women in the debate about genome editing? The new issue of ‘forschung leben’ addresses these and many other issues relating to the topic of responsibility.
