Th, 01. February 2024 As Aalen University of Applied Sciences, we are increasingly concerned about the growing anti-democratic sentiment and the rise of racist ideas in some parts of our society. As a university, we are an educational and research institution: our teaching and research thrive on the coming together of different international perspectives and cultural backgrounds. Our multicultural community contributes significantly to the success of our work.

Paths to a Doctorate The Research Academy offers further education opportunities for young scientists at Aalen University of Applied Sciences.

Mo, 29. January 2024 As one of the strongest research universities in Germany, Aalen University has a large number of scientific staff – of which many are striving for a doctorate. They come from very different fields such as battery research, business psychology, bioanalytical chemistry or machine learning. In order to meet the needs of such diverse researchers, the Research Academy was founded in 2021 as part of the „WINPROFSHIP“ project in the federal-state program „FH-Personal“. Their duties: to establish a central contact point for the promotion of early career researchers. But how do you build a broad-based offering – and how does such a program look like?

Tu, 31. October 2023 Dust is quite a nuisance. But on the moon it poses very special problems for the astronauts. Because the moon dust doesn't have much in common with the earth's fluff or dust: it is sharp-edged, fine and sticks like glue. Therefore, it can damage machines, devices and equipment. With the help of powerful laser beams, a research team including Prof. Dr. Miranda Fateri from Aalen University wants to turn dust into stone on the moon.
