01.07.2020 Oliver Bäumchen nimmt Ruf an die Universität Bayreuth an

07-01-2020 Oliver Bäumchen accepts a call to the University of Bayreuth

Our group leader Oliver Bäumchen has accepted a call to the University of Bayreuth for a W3 professorship in experimental physics and has been appointed university professor as of October 1, 2020. With his group "Dynamics of fluid and biological interfaces" (https://www.ds.mpg.de/en/dcf/baeumchen) he has investigated the physical properties of motile cells in detail in recent years and has discovered novel, previously unknown effects especially in the microalgae Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. We congratulate Oliver on his new position!

31.05.2020 Ich bin die Haltestelle! - Bericht über den EcoBus von Stephan Herminghaus in den Jahrbuch-Highlights der MPG veröffentlicht
Imagine a bus picking you up right where you are and taking you to your desired destination. What sounds elaborate and uneconomical is achieved by the EcoBus ride-pooling system, which we developed in theory. In the meantime, it has also proven itself in initial practical tests and could thus help to solve our mobility problems (article in German). more

13.04.2020 "Flexa für Helden" startet in Leipzig

20-04-13 "Flexa for Heroes" starts in Leipzig

Flexa in Leipzig, the intermodal ride-pooling service with four minibuses, is currently a problematic concept due to contact restrictions. Since April, Flexa has therefore only been operating for hospital staff, but with a greatly expanded fleet (up to 19 vehicles) and throughout the entire Leipzig city area. This transport service, which was set up for the Corona period and mainly serves the night hours when no other public transport is operating, is appropriately named "Flexa for Heroes".
