Dear reader,

in the current issue of hoch³ FORSCHEN – the science quarterly – you´ll find the following topics:

Narratives about Europe

Brexit, the refugee issue, conflicts with Poland and Hungary: the EU is never out of the headlines. But how do people in Europe talk about Europe? An international team at TU Darmstadt is exploring this now.

Quantum chemistry for the energy transition

TU Chemistry Professor Vera Krewald doesn’t need a laboratory but rather powerful computers. She uses the tools of quantum chemistry to describe chemical reactions – namely those that will play a key role in the transition to a sustainable economy.

An expert in cellular communication

Meike Saul, head of a research group in the Department of Biology at TU Darmstadt, has decoded the function of a short strand of RNA linked with lung cancer and arthritis. She is now using her findings to develop new diagnostic methods and therapies.

Scalable quantum processors in sight

A physics research group at TU Darmstadt, which has received funding of 3.3 million euros as part of the „Quantum Technologies“ program of the German federal government, is pursuing ambitious goals.
