With an innovative concept for international, strategically-oriented excellence scouting, TU Dresden has now been accepted in the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation's new Henriette Herz Scouting Program. The "SCAFFOLDING" pilot project supports the "Friedrich List” Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences in attracting and recruiting highly qualified, international, early-career researchers. It is carried out in cooperation with the Chair of Network Dynamics at the Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden (cfaed) and is endowed with a total of 125,000 EUR. The two-year project will start in January 2021 and will be jointly led by Prof. Regine Gerike from the Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences and Prof. Marc Timme (cfaed and Institute for Theoretical Physics).

Great joy at the Dresden Center for Nanoanalysis (DCN): In a competition run by Protochips, Inc. (U.S.), the analytics user facility of the TU Dresden had submitted an application - and was successful! Besides the international recognition and reputation that go along with the prize, the DCN will be awarded a state-of-the-art and world-wide unrivalled Axon synchronization tool. The Axon system will perfectly complement and further enhance the center's capabilities of in-situ electron microscopy, a field in which the DCN is already now excellently positioned. The hardware and software components will soon be delivered and installed on the DCN’s high-resolution transmission electron microscope JEOL F200.

Apps such as Uber are an important mobility feature in many big cities. Driving others from A to B in their own car has become a job for many people. However, many drivers complain that their income is too low. In May 2019, the US television station ABC reported how Uber drivers at Washington airport artificially inflated the price of the service by all going offline at the same time. Within a few minutes, the price of the service had risen by 13 dollars, which almost doubled the amount. How exactly does this strategy work and when is it used? This is what Dr. Malte Schröder and Professor Marc Timme from the Chair for Network Dynamics at the Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden (cfaed) and the Institute for Theoretical Physics at TU Dresden have been investigating alongside PhD students David-Maximilian Storch and Philip Marszal.
