5G mobile networks are taking shape and will soon be available to everyone. Leibniz Scientists coordinate a project on large scale testing in different sites across Europe.
Reducing food waste
27.06.2019 · ZEW – Leibniz Centre for European Economic Research
To further reduce food waste by facilitating a needs-based distribution of food donations to food banks is the goal of a new project.
Recognizing movement patterns
27.06.2019 · German Primate Center - Leibniz Institute für Primate Research
The research project "Deep Movement Diagnostics" receives around 1.2 million euros for the development of three-dimensional reconstructions of movement patterns.

B chromosomes are often preferentially inherited. Researchers have now been able to decipher the mechanisms behind this phenomenon.
21.06.2019 · ifo Institute - Leibniz Institute for Economic Research
A new study shows that the population of Eastern Germany has fallen back to a level last seen in 1905 and that the impact of the German division is thoroughly underestimated.
21.06.2019 · Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research
The West Antarctic ice sheet instability might trigger a global sea-level rise of more than 3 meters.
11.06.2019 · INM - Leibniz Institute for New Materials
To stay invisible to prey animals the deep-sea dragonfish has evolved transparent teeth that reduce light scattering. The predator turns out to be a natural model for materials research.
11.06.2019 · Leibniz Institute for Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research
Plants respond to nutrient deficiencies by adapting the growth of their roots. Low levels of nitrogen stimulate a foraging strategy by which the roots can exploit nutrients from a larger soil volume.
07.06.2019 · Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research
It cannot be taken for granted that Germany’s plan to phase out coal will decrease CO2 emissions - to the contrary.
06.06.2019 · Leibniz Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries
Microplastics may represent a significant habitat and transport medium for microorganisms including toxic species. On plastic items, they exhibit much higher densities than in the surrounding water.
29.05.2019 · Leibniz Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries
Inland and coastal waters are among the most threatened ecosystems. However, the loss of biodiversity often remains unnoticed. A new research agenda aims to raise awareness.
29.05.2019 · Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research
The chemical composition of the limestone skeleton of tropical corals reflects ocean acidification - a consequence of the increase in CO2 in the atmosphere.
Evolution of language
28.05.2019 · German Primate Center - Leibniz Institute for Primate Research
West African green monkeys warn their conspecifics against predators with special alarm calls. Their structure allows conclusion about how language developed in the course of evolution.
23.05.2019 · German Institute for Economic Research Berlin
A refugee´s personality is one of the factors which decides how successful integration is. Refugees who are more willing to take risks and who tend to reciprocate friendliness integrate faster.
Original kilogram replaced
22.05.2019 · Leibniz-Institut für Kristallzüchtung
The kilogram also is now defined by a natural constant: the Planck constant. It replaces the original kilogram which has been the measure of all things for almost 130 years.
20.05.2019 · ZEW - Leibniz-Centre for European Economic Research Mannheim
They combine innovative technology with tailor-made solutions for their customers: 'Hidden Champions' are among the most successful small and medium-sized enterprises in Germany.
Stressed farm animals
16.05.2019 · Leibniz Institute for Farm Animal Biology
Climate change may become a major problem for livestock farming. Researchers have found that the increasing heat stress leads directly to health consequences in the intestines of dairy cows.
16.05.2019 · Leibniz Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries
A research team at the Leibniz Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries received the Ralf Dahrendorf Prize for a resource-saving breeding method.
