Corinna Barnstedt I grew up in the USA and Switzerland before moving to Germany.  After obtaining a honour’s degree in geography from the University of Hamburg, I took a journalism traineeship at JahresZeiten Verlag .
Efficient, Cheap and Green
Efficient, Cheap and Green Only when they are accepted, or better even embraced by the people, they can be implemented swiftly without any  major delays.
New erosion protection for offshore wind turbines
New erosion protection for offshore wind turbines The harsh offshore environment with heavy rain causes the  blades to erode , leading to a significant reduction in efficiency and energy production.
Climate change and extreme weather events: is Europe ready?
Climate change and extreme weather events: is Europe ready? In 2005 the centre of the Finnish capital Helsinki was nearly flooded because of the raising of the sea level. After that event, the municipality has been building special pedestrian ways, which are about 1.
Efficient Buildings Key to Reduce Climate Change
Efficient Buildings Key to Reduce Climate Change “The building sector is responsible for more than 30% of global energy demand and round about 20% of greenhouse gas emissions”, says Peter Graham from the Global Buildings Performance Network in Paris.
Decoding the oceans
Decoding the oceans The Oceans are filled with a diversity of life forms. This means that getting a complete picture of marine biodiversity is challenging.
Most Sustainable Office in the World
Most Sustainable Office in the World Much effort has been put into its planning and construction to reach this high-level of sustainability, which makes it the most sustainable newly erected office building worldwide , according to LEEDS standards.
Gluten doppelgänger in the baking
Gluten doppelgänger in the baking All their life, people with coeliac disease relinquish eating food containing wheat, rye or barley. These cereals contain a protein called gluten that is not well tolerated by their body.
Transparent Electronics
Transparent Electronics In the MULTIFLEXIOXIDES project scientist have developed new cost-efficient, long lasting, light, flexible and transparent devices which can display information directly on the windscreen.
Nano Eco Dye
Nano Eco Dye Researchers working for the EU-funded research project SOPHIED have discovered that a fungus from the Solomon Islands produces special enzymes that act as nano-bio-catalysts.
Wooden Bones
Wooden Bones Rebuilding bones out of wood, or cartilage out of algae and chitosan is the most spectacular aspect of this particular bioinspiration field.
The Nano Laboratory
The Nano Laboratory Within the European Research Project Fiblys, they have therefore redesigned their microscope to a fully functional nano-laboratory.
Nano Foil Brightens Screen
Nano Foil Brightens Screen Engineers of the European research project NaPanil have modified the glass surfaces on the micrometric and nanometric scale in order to control the path of the light.A unique innovation that could soon become part of our daily lives.
Nano Non-Stick Paint For Efficient Shipping
Nano Non-Stick Paint For Efficient Shipping These molecules have a curious relationship with water. One part of the molecule is hydrophilic, so it attracts water molecules. The other part is hydrophobic, so it pushes them away.
Regenerating the Ear and the Eye
Regenerating the Ear and the Eye Finnish researchers have designed tiny nano-particles which can deliver a specific drug to cells of the inner ear. Once brought into position, this drug helps to repair damaged cells .
Nano Powered Cars
Nano Powered Cars In the last five years 25 European research institutions have joint forces to develop a rechargeable battery which uses lithium nano-particles.
Nano-tuned Solar Cells
Nano-tuned Solar Cells The sun has enough power to supply the whole earth with energy. But as long as renewable energy is more expensive than energy produced by coal or nuclear plants, solar energy won’t be first choice.
Mobile Detection System for Contaminated Water
Mobile Detection System for Contaminated Water The technology uses several nano-biological sensors to monitor the presence of several bioterrorism agents in drinking water.
Boosting Memory Chips
Boosting Memory Chips In each generation cycle memory chips get smaller and less expensive, but can hold more data. They are used in USB memory sticks, personal computers, video consoles and many other electronic devices.
Tune Up Your Electric Car!
Tune Up Your Electric Car! The research team has redesigned the batteries which are now also able to store energy during braking and releasing it quickly during acceleration.
