Sebastian Teichert and his colleagues have monitored the growth of rhodoliths very closely. In the process, they discovered which impact climate change has on their development.

Although the two huge icefields in the Andes in South America cover approximately 16,000 square kilometers, not much is known about the Patagonian icefields.

Johannes Bartl is a doctoral candidate of physics at FAU.  He is part of a team of researchers examining emperor penguins and their behavior with high-resolution cameras.

Seven years ago, the Green Factory Bavaria project was launched with the aim of minimising resource consumption in production. Project coordinator Prof. Dr. Jörg Franke of the Institute for Factory Automation and Production Systems explains the most important results of the Green Factory Bavaria.

The Bavarian state government has presented the Bavarian Hydrogen Strategy in Nuremberg. An important part of this strategy is promoting mobility research. FAU and TUM have joined forces to further explore and implement hydrogen mobility technology together with partners from industry and the economy.

How can fossils predict the consequences of climate change? A German research team from FAU, the Museum of Natural History Berlin and the Alfred Wegener Institute compared data from fossil and marine organisms living today to predict which groups of animals are most at risk from climate change.

The 21st century poses considerable challenges to mankind, and science has a major role to play in mastering them. Researchers at FAU also have a valuable contribution to make. The University has now launched two Maps focussing on its expertise in two areas which are particularly important for society: the AI Map and the Energy and Climate Map.
