Giles Gardam receives Emmy Noether funding

The German Research Foundation (DFG) is providing funding from the Emmy Noether Programme of just over one million euros for Dr. Giles Gardam. This means that Gardam, a mathematician who has been working at Münster as a postdoc since 2019, can build up his own research group in the coming six years.

Dossier: Sustainability at the University of Münster

Fridays for Future, plastic waste in the oceans, renewable energies – sustainability is a much-discussed issue. We should treat natural resources with care and not live at the expense of future generations. Research undertaken at the University of Münster can make its contribution. In a six-month dossier, we illuminate sustainability in its many facets.
