Hype about the new 5 Euro coin

The new 5 Euro coin 'Planet Earth' is now commercially available. DWI was part of the team that developed it. Numerous print and online media, such as Die Welt, Spiegel Online, Frankfurter Neue Presse and N24, featured the new coin and its blue polymer ring. You can learn more about the coin in the radio science program 'WDR Leonardo' (April 14, at 47 min, German).

Two ERC Advanced Grants for Scientists at DWI

Martin Möller and Matthias Wessling both receive an Advanced Grant from the European Research Council (ERC). The ERC uses its Advanced Grants to financially support outstanding, well-established scientists with up to 2.5 Million Euro and thereby allows them to pursue groundbreaking high-risk research in Europe.
