In April 2020, the interdisciplinary joint project "TelMa" will start, in which a total of 9 working groups of the University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern will work together to develop new possibilities for regenerative medicine. In addition to the project management by Prof. Saumer, the other participants are the working groups of Professors Urschel, Raabe, Brigadski, Braun, Schäfer, Trautmann, Möbius and the WWHK Prof. Starke.
With regard to the start of the project, the University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern issued a press release describing the activities within the framework of the research project supported by the Carl-Zeiss Foundation.
The election for the teaching prize 2019 at the University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern has been completed and the students have decided. In a two-week voting they chose university lecturers who combine exciting events, high commitment and good didactic concepts in their teaching and thus contribute to the success of their studies.
The winners of this year's teaching prize are:
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Peter Starke, Faculty of Applied Engineering Sciences
Prof. Dr. Niels Eckstein, Faculty of Applied Logistics and Polymer Sciences
Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Brigitte Al Bosta, Faculty of Building and Design
Prof. Dr. Bert Forschelen, Faculty of Business Administration
Prof. Dr. Manh Tien Tran, Faculty of Computer Science and Microsystems Technology
The Galileo Award 2019 goes to the University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern.
The award is granted by the German Society for Material Science e.V. (DGM), the German Association for Materials Research and Testing (DVM) and the Steel Institute VDEh for outstanding achievements in the field of materials testing.
The WWHK is starting the year 2020 with 2 new research projects.
The DFG is funding the project "Use of µmagnetic test methods to evaluate damage development in cyclically loaded metallic materials" with a duration of 24 months.
The WWHK is also involved in the joint project "Tissue Engineering of tissues in complex hydrogels using three-dimensional electrical and magnetic stimulation" funded by the Carl-Zeiss Foundation.
Within the framework of an interdisciplinary research project, the cooperation between the AG Elektrotechnische Systeme der Mechatronik and the WWHK is to be expanded. For the successful implementation of this project, Mr. Thilo Schwamm has strengthened both working groups since 15.09.2019 and will in particular investigate the cross effects between magnetic and mechanical material parameters.
Prof. P. Starke and Prof. F. Walther (WPT, TU Dortmund) are guest editors for the special issue "Fatigue Life Calculation Approaches for Metallic Materials" for the journal Metals published by MPDI.
Deadline for submissions is 31.05.2020. Contributions can be submitted directly via the MDPI homepage.
