Fraunhofer Medal awarded to Prof. Jarke

26.06.2012
Prof. Dr. Matthias Jarke, director of the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology FIT and Information Systems chair at RWTH Aachen University, was awarded the Fraunhofer Medal on the occasion of his 60th birthday.

During the recent meeting of Fraunhofer FIT's Board of Curators, Dr. Alexander Kurz, Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft Senior Vice President Personnel and Legal Affairs, presented Prof. Jarke with the medal in recognition of his outstanding services to Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft.

In 2000, Prof. Dr. Matthias Jarke became the director of the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology FIT, whose headquarters are located on the Fraunhofer Schloss Birlinghoven Campus in Sankt Augustin. In his position as Speaker of the Institute Center Schloss Birlinghoven he initiated and coordinated the restructuring of the former administrative units into a service organization for the campus and Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft as a whole.

While president of the Gesellschaft für Informatik (German Informatics Society), Prof. Jarke organized the Jahr der Informatik (Year of Informatics) in Germany. This nationwide series of events fostered public awareness of the achievements of the Fraunhofer Information and Communication Technology Group (ICT). In 2010, Prof. Jarke was elected chairman of the ICT Group, Europe's largest information and communication technology research organization with a staff of more than 4,000 people and an annual budget of over 220 million €.

Prof. Jarke is an internationally renowned researcher and among the German computer scientists with the highest number of international citations. He managed the turnaround of Fraunhofer FIT from an institute of GMD – Forschungszentrum Informationstechnik, which focused on basic research, to an application-oriented Fraunhofer institute with solid economic success.

As founding director of the Bonn-Aachen International Center for Information Technology (B-IT), Prof. Jarke laid the foundation for the cooperation of the three institutes on the Fraunhofer Schloss Birlinghoven Campus with RWTH Aachen University, Bonn University and Bonn-Rhine-Sieg University of Applied Sciences in coordinating and conducting B-IT's international Master's programs. The international orientation of the programs has become a model for other universities. The alumni of the programs are a valuable source of talents for the local Fraunhofer institutes.

Furthermore, Prof. Jarke helped to establish Business Informatics as a research field for Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft by integrating Prof. Dr. Hans Ulrich Buhl's Finance Information Management group at Augsburg University as a Fraunhofer FIT project group.

Im Focus: LaserTAB: Effizientere und präzisere Kontakte dank Roboter-Kollaboration

Auf der diesjährigen productronica in München stellt das Fraunhofer-Institut für Lasertechnik ILT das Laser-Based Tape-Automated Bonding, kurz LaserTAB, vor: Die Aachener Experten zeigen, wie sich dank neuer Optik und Roboter-Unterstützung Batteriezellen und Leistungselektronik effizienter und präziser als bisher lasermikroschweißen lassen.

Auf eine geschickte Kombination von Roboter-Einsatz, Laserscanner mit selbstentwickelter neuer Optik und Prozessüberwachung setzt das Fraunhofer ILT aus Aachen.

Im Focus: LaserTAB: More efficient and precise contacts thanks to human-robot collaboration

At the productronica trade fair in Munich this November, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be presenting Laser-Based Tape-Automated Bonding, LaserTAB for short. The experts from Aachen will be demonstrating how new battery cells and power electronics can be micro-welded more efficiently and precisely than ever before thanks to new optics and robot support.

Fraunhofer ILT from Aachen relies on a clever combination of robotics and a laser scanner with new optics as well as process monitoring, which it has developed...

Im Focus: The pyrenoid is a carbon-fixing liquid droplet

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Im Focus: Hochpräzise Verschaltung in der Hirnrinde

Es ist noch immer weitgehend unbekannt, wie die komplexen neuronalen Netzwerke im Gehirn aufgebaut sind. Insbesondere in der Hirnrinde der Säugetiere, wo Sehen, Denken und Orientierung berechnet werden, sind die Regeln, nach denen die Nervenzellen miteinander verschaltet sind, nur unzureichend erforscht. Wissenschaftler um Moritz Helmstaedter vom Max-Planck-Institut für Hirnforschung in Frankfurt am Main und Helene Schmidt vom Bernstein-Zentrum der Humboldt-Universität in Berlin haben nun in dem Teil der Großhirnrinde, der für die räumliche Orientierung zuständig ist, ein überraschend präzises Verschaltungsmuster der Nervenzellen entdeckt.

Wie die Forscher in Nature berichten (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005), haben die...

Im Focus: Highly precise wiring in the Cerebral Cortex

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.

The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...
