Researchers have solved a 30,000-year-old murder. Contrary to previous expectations, the earliest modern European fell victim to an act of violence.
09.07.2019 · Kiel Institute for the World Economy
If Europe wants to succeed with the Paris Climate Agreement, it has to extend the European Emissions Trading Scheme to all sectors and greenhouse gases.
09.07.2019 · Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research Dresden
Inspired by folding art: a new method uses external magnetic fields for the targeted production of three-dimensional micro devices with outstanding performance and high yield.
05.07.2019 · Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research
Leibniz scientists have investigated ice cores, which can provide insights on the type of cloud cover in the Arctic over the last 500 years and thus close large gaps in knowledge in climate research.
Academic Freedom in Hungary
Open letter from the Alliance of Science Organisations in Germany to Prime Minister Orbán
03.07.2019 · Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology
A new optical method helps surgeons to reliably identify tumors and remove them more precisely.
03.07.2019 · Innovations for High Performance Microelectronics
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.
27.06.2019 · Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research
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.
