Prof. Herbert Obinger

The DFG awarded a Reinhart-Kosselleck-Projekt to Prof. Herbert Obinger worth almost one million Euro. Did army and universal conscription contribute to the development of a social welfare state? If so, in which aspects? Herbert Obinger wants to answer these questions within the project "Universal Conscription, the Military, and Welfare State Development in Europe". Herbert Obinger is Professorial Member of the Board of Directors at the Research Center on Inequality and Social Policy (SOCIUM) at the University of Bremen.

The DFG awarded 1.25 Million Euro to a Koselleck project led by geoscientist Wolfgang Bach for a period of five years starting in 2012. In a novel experimental approach, fractured rocks are subjected to hot aqueous solutions, while reactions and associated changes in permeability are being monitored. Particular focus is on elucidating the couplings and feedbacks between reaction and permeability in water-rock systems. The results will help improve the modeling of processes critical in Earth's geochemical cycles as well as in assessing and using resources, such as mineral deposits and geothermal energy.
