Verovaccines: Vaccine developers on track for success

Animal diseases are posing ever greater challenges for the agriculture industry and the demand for effective vaccines is extremely high. This is where the spin-off company from Halle called Verovaccines comes in with its innovative yeast-based vaccines. A further obstacle has now been overcome. The company will again receive funding amounting to 3.1 million euros over the next three years as part of the GO-Bio programme of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Read more

“Flexibility is our advantage”

The Weinberg Campus is a high-tech location. In the last 25 years around one billion euros has been invested in a site that is also the heart of the university’s scientific campus. The density of research institutes is high on the nearly 134-hectare site. This is accompanied by numerous successful companies that have often emerged from start-ups. Important drivers of the process are technology and founders’ centres. The first one opened in 1993 and the technology park was born. Professor Reinhard Neubert - a scientist, Prorector and entrepreneur - is one of the pioneers of this development. He talks with Ines Godazgar in an interview. Read more

Halle’s Physicists on a Pathway to Success

Knowledge transfer is only successful when it is coupled with excellent basic research. The staff at the Institute of Physics are doing just that. The institute is not only home to three collaborative research centres (CRC) of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) and one Alexander von Humboldt professorship. Its researchers have excellent international ties and have regularly attracted notice through articles published in renowned journals. Read more

Cutting-Edge Research Where Vineyards Once Grew

The area between the Heide district in Halle and the river Saale was used in the past for very different things. The land-use demarcation “vineyard” (Weinberg in German) was based on the fact that vineyards had been officially documented multiple times on this land since the 13th century. The fruit played such an important role in Mediaeval wine culture that in 1750 the chronicler Dreyhaupt compared the good wine to that of the Rhine Valley. Read more

Everyone in Germany should be given the same educational opportunities. This means that teachers have to take into account very different needs in the classroom. Pupils with various special education requirements learn together. In order to better prepare student teachers for inclusive instruction, the University of Halle has developed the project “Casuistic Teacher Training for Inclusive Education”, in short KALEI. Today educational inequality can begin as early as kindergarten, because parents always want the best for their child. The magnitude of these developments has been investigated at the University of Halle by Research Group 1619 “Mechanisms of Elite Formation”, which is financed by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation).
