16th ECR Workshop

"Science meets Industry"

The MAPEX Center for Materials and Processes hosted the "Science meets Industry" workshop on December 7, 2023. The workshop took place in the LION building on the campus of the University of Bremen and was open to MAPEX doctoral and postdoctoral researchers.

    Do I want to work in industry after my doctorate?

The workshop offered the opportunity to get in touch with alumni of the University of Bremen who transferred from research to industry after their doctorate. In presentations and moderated discussions, participants were able to get to know the individual career paths of the invited guests. Between the sessions, there was an opportunity to exchange ideas with the guests and other early career researchers.

Dr. Deepanjalee Dutta made the start. The biomaterials scientist presented her research and gave visitors an insight into her career. At the University of Bremen, she recently conducted research into an antibacterial alloy for potential bone implants and ceramic-based wound dressings. She will be moving into industry in the new year.

Dr. Diana Ebersberger then presented the services offered by the Bremen Early Career Reearcher Development (BYRD) at the University of Bremen. The invited alumni Dr.-Ing Heike Sonnenberg from ArianeGroup GmbH and Dr. Felipe Macul Perez from Bayer AG complimented the BYRD's offer and agreed that it had given them excellent impulses on their way from academia to industry.

    "If you want it, then try it"

This was followed by a discussion with Sonnenberg and Perez. Dr. Hanna Lührs, Science Manager at MAPEX, moderated the discussion and asked the two MAPEX alumni questions about their experiences. "If you want it, then try it," Sonnenberg summarized her answer to the question of whether it makes sense for researchers to enter the private sector.

After a presentation of the MAPEX qualification program, Dr. Enis Bicer, program coordinator at MAPEX, moderated another discussion with Dr. Laura Luhede and Dr. Marzellus große Holthaus. After completing her PhD with a focus on materials science, Luhede started as a product and marketing manager at Hitachi Zosen INOVA, whose core business is the recovery of valuable resources from waste. Since completing his doctorate, Holthaus has been working for the Bremen-based family business BEGO Implant Systems, where he has been Technical Managing Director for four years. Both presented their careers and answered questions from the workshop participants.

Finally, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Rainer Fechte-Heinen, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Leibniz Institute for Materials-Oriented Technologies (IWT) in Bremen, presented his professional path. It led him from research to working at thyssenkrupp Steel Europe AG and back into research at the IWT.

"Science meets Industry"

MAPEX and the MAPEX Doctoral Qualification Program organized the 14th ECR Workshop, which was held in February 2023 under the motto 'Science meets Industry'. The focus of the workshop was to provide Early Career Researchers an opportunity to come into contact with graduates who are now successful in their careers in industry and business. A particular highlight of the workshop was the focus on the aspect of spin-offs from the academic research.

In two interesting and impressive career talks two experienced scientists gave a very personal view on their professional development. Dr. Mar Fernández-Méndez introduced her innovative project and idea of ​​​​aquafarming the open ocean with the aim to reduce pressures on coastal natural ecosystems and their biodiversity and also contributing to reduce Carbon Dioxide at scale. As co-founder of "Seafields", she shared her personal challenges and necessities of being an academic researcher and a company founder at the same time.

Prof. Dr. Jan-Henning Dirks from Hochschule Bremen - City University of Applied Sciences gave an insightful talk about his personal career trajectory, highlighting his professional and personal experience in the private sector as well as in academic research. He explained why it was exactly the right decision for him to return to academia after a short time in industry, which eventually led to a professorship. He presented his scientific interesting work on the biomechanical properties of the cuticle exoskeleton.

Two panel sessions gave an opportunity for direct discussion and exchange with the invited panellists. In the panel discussion “moving from academia to industry”, Dr. Valentin Baric (ArcelorMittal Bremen) and Dr.-Ing. Mirko Christ (OHB System AG) gave insights into their individual career paths. They have successfully started a career in industry after being a scientist in the MAPEX community. The focus of the discussion was on important skills and competences necessary in their current professional work as well as on the differences in the daily work routine between the academic and the private sector.

“Starting a company from academia” was the second panel in which Dr. Marin Holi (TOPAS Industrial Mathematics) and Dr. Andreas Grund (GCP-Service International Ltd. & Co. KG) shared their unique perspectives and expertise on starting a business from academia. What does it take to turn ideas into a successful business model? How to deal with possible setbacks along the way? These were only some of the questions the participants discussed with our guests. In this context, Jeroen Langejan introduced BRIDGE's broad range of services as a central contact point for start-up support for members of Bremen's universities.

Finally, the workshop featured two presentations on scientific and applied work by Early Career Investigators at MAPEX. Dr. Tim Radel from BIAS gave an overview of different laser procedures for surface modification, including laser polishing and laser-induced periodic surface structures (LIPSS). Dr. Manuel Alonso-Orts from the Institute of Solid State Physics presented his scientific work on Gallium Oxide. His goal is to overcome technical challenges related to the UWBG system by developing and applying novel fabrication methods and designs for visible and near-UV optical cavities based on epitaxial Ga 2 O 3 .

Many stories discussed how the community here at the University of Bremen was their introduction to their current and previous positions. The more than 50 participants actively listened and asked many questions regarding research, employment, and life after leaving university. Please refer to the link below for the detailed programme as this details the list of presenters as their current affiliations.During the break time, detailed discussions with the presenters took place. Participants took great advantage of the time to ask further insight into professional and personal life beyond university life. Exchanges of business cards and ideas could be heard in all parts of the break room.In addition to the focus of this workshop, Charlotte Simmat and Wiltrud Hoffmann from the Bremen Business StartUp and Job Entry, presented the support services of the universities transfer unit such as BRIDGE and the job-oriented Mentoring-Programme “Fokus Berufseinstieg”. These paths detailed the possibilities of bringing current scientific research to industry via patenting and start-up possibilities (BRIDGE).

6th MAPEX Early Career Researchers Workshop

"Building bridges across the boarders defined by the faculties and institutes."

More than 40 young scientists from four faculties of the university met during the sixth edition of the MAPEX Early Career Researcher Workshop on 25 April 2018. The flashlight and keynote presentations provided a good basis for a lively interdisciplinary exchange between postdocs, PhD candidates, and master students during the poster sessions. Colleagues from the research services unit and the Bremen Early Career Researcher Development (BYRD) answered numerous questions regarding funding schemes for postdocs as well as the support of early-career researchers at the University of Bremen. With his plenary lecture on “Semiconductor nanostructures - smart probes for biological systems” Martin Eickhoff closed the official programme of the workshop. After a day full of scientific insights, some participants enjoyed a visit of the "Hafenrummel", testing their luck and skill on a course of fairground attractions of the 1950ies.

5th MAPEX Early Career Researchers Workshop

Science meets industry – spin-offs and cooperation projects

About 40 participants from the University of Bremen and Hochschule Bremen were highly impressed by the contributions presented at the 5th MAPEX Early Career Researcher Workshop on 16 November 2017. According to the motto “spin-offs and cooperation projects” Meike Goos from the Knowledge and Technology Transfer Unit of the University of Bremen introduced possibilities for scientists to set up a business originating from Bremen’s universities. In vivid contributions, three spin-offs of the University of Bremen shared their experience packed full with anecdotes and practical recommendations how to bring your ingenious idea into a ready-to-sell product. The key message to take home from all three founders, Cord Winkelmann (sensosurf), Stefan Frehse (SCiLS), and John Schlasche (Additive Works), is “Talk to your customer!”

In the afternoon, the audience was taken onto an intriguing trip on how academic research and industrial development can work hand in hand. In two tandem talks, Arne Kunze from the Stiftung Institut für Werkstofftechnik (IWT) and Sabine Wagner (Form Tech GmbH) as well as Michael Brink from the Institute for Integrated Product Development (BIK) and Lars Ischtschuk (SAERTEX GmbH & Co. KG) presented successful examples for the workshop motto “science meets industry”.

A lively exchange between the presenters and the participants took place during the lunch break and coffee breaks. As a final highlight, the MAPEX speaker Lucio Colombi Ciacchi (Hybrid Materials Interfaces) closed the imposing day with a presentation of his own research, showing that the understanding of processes on the atomistic scale can push forward industrial development.

Within the 4th Early Career Researcher Workshop (formerly named Young Scientist Workshop) on May the 11th, 50 young scientist met in the TAB building to present and discuss their work and contribution to MAPEX. Beside three keynote presentations from Gerrit Dumstorff (FB1, IMSAS), Nils Ellendt (IWT, SFB1232) and Andrea Kirsch (FB2, CKfS) 20 master students, PhD candidates, and postdocs gave a short view on their work in a lightning presentation followed up by poster sessions. “It is interesting and exciting to see, what people are dealing with in their daily scientific work and how they actually define scientific work”, said one of the participants. Another participant praised the relaxed atmosphere, where‚ Master students, PHDs and Postdocs get together. A highlight of the workshop was the last presentation “Processes at fluid interfaces” by Mark Avila. The new Head of the ZARM gave an exciting insight into the scientific work of his group. The workshop finally ended in the city with a slightly different presentation: A night watchman lead the participants through the old city of Bremen, telling stories about the city by walking from the marketplace over the Schlachte to the Schnoor Viertel. Alltogether the workshop was again a successful event which will be continued in autumn with the 5th workshop, where people from industry will meet the MAPEX Early Career Researchers.

3rd MAPEX Young Scientist Workshop

Science meets Industry - cooperation projects and career path in(to) the industry

Every seat was occupied for the 3rd MAPEX Young Scientist Workshop that took place with more than 60 participants on 27th September 2016. According to the motto “science meets industry” the programme was composed of career talks by representatives from BEGO Implant Systems GmbH & Co. KG, OHB System AG as well as tandem talks on cooperative projects held by a MAPEX member and a cooperation partner from industry (Daimler AG, ficonTec Service GmbH). The generous coffee breaks allowed for a lively exchange between the participants and the presenters from science and industry. A highlight was the plenary talk, which is traditionally given by a newly appointed professor in the MAPEX community: Anne Staubitz took the participants on a fascinating journey through her research “Synthesis as a Tool for Developing New Functional Materials”. The talk of MAPEX early career investigator Katharina Koschek from the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials IFAM on the “challenges and opportunities of fibre reinforced plastics” was a perfect introduction for the final excursion through the different departments of the IFAM. The day was rounded off by a dinner buffet and get together at the IFAM and later on in the Haus am Walde.

About 60 young scientists from the University of Bremen and Hochschule Bremen met on 11 April 2016 for the 2nd MAPEX Young Scientist Workshop in the science lounge of the TAB building. In 27 flash presentations master and PhD students advertised their research posters in front of the MAPEX early career investigators and their colleagues. The contributions were embedded in a frame work of key lectures from the MAPEX members Michael Fischer (FB5), Dirk Lehmhus (FB4) and Dorothea Brüggemann (FB1). Whereas Michael Fischer guided the audience into the world of “Atomistic Modelling of Porous Solids – From Fundamental Understanding to Applications”, Dirk Lehmhus discussed “Material- integrated intelligent systems: Challenges and Perspectives”. Dorothea Brüggemann started her talk “Materials science meets Biology: Synthetic cell systems” with the view of a physicist on biology: “What I cannot create, I do not understand!” (Richard Feynman).

As a high light, Prof. Fabio La Mantia, recently appointed at the faculty of Production Engineering (FB4) held the plenary lecture and introduced into “Novel aqueous zinc-ion battery on copper hexacyanoferrate for grid energy storage”.

Numerous enthusiastic discussions started during the poster sessions and were contunued during the blacklight minigolf match and the dinner. The young scientists summarized the workshop to be an excellent platform to get an overview on the research topics and techniques available at the University of Bremen and to get in contact with scientists from the other faculties.
