Participants of the 6th German-Russian Travelling Seminars together with the organizer of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Universities Regensburg and Erlangen-Nürnberg as well as the Vice Director of the Institute of Materials Physics in Space.
The German Aerospace Center in Cologne was the final stage of 6th German-Russian Travelling Seminar 2015 focusing on physics and chemistry of nanomaterials on October 9th. The seminar is funded on the German side by the BMBF. The travel included besides DLR in Cologne also visits to research centers in Berlin, Lund (Sweden) and Hamburg. The Seminar is orgranized by the Institute of Biophysics of the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, by the Institute of Inorganic Chemistry of the University of Regensburg, the Institute of Solid State Chemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Ural Federal University. A total of 24 students split equally between russian and german universities participated in the visit. After their welcome at the Institute of Materials Physics in Space, the participants had the opportunity to learn about recent research activities at the Institute following two scientific talks. The talks were followed by a lab-tour with a focus on recent development in the area of research under microgravity conditions. Subsequently the participants visited the MUSC where they learned about currently running experiments in the Columbus module aboard the ISS and obtained a first-hand insight into the Rosetta mission. The visit was concluded by a lunch.
