The Film is Rolling for Jülich Vlogs

New series on structural change projects on the Internet as of next Wednesday

Jülich, 16 October 2020 – Forschungszentrum Jülich is launching a new series of video blogs (vlogs) on its YouTube channel: on Wednesday, 21 October 2020 and each Wednesday after that for five weeks at 17:00, it will broadcast short films on Jülich projects that promote and support structural change in the Rhineland region. In the exciting and entertaining films, reporter Johannes Döbbelt will take his viewers on a tour of Jülich’s laboratories, clean rooms, production halls, and supercomputers. On site, (early-career) scientists introduce the respective projects to him. Immediately after the video, you will have the opportunity to put your questions to the scientists involved in the project via a live chat function. The series is being streamed in the run-up to Jülich’s end-of-year lecture evening that will be broadcast on the Internet for all those interested for the first time on Tuesday, 1 December 2020 at 18:30.

Scientific innovations from Forschungszentrum Jülich will help to create new value chains in the Rhineland region in the three future fields of information, energy, and bioeconomy. Starting next Wednesday, the first episode of the series will focus on the “iNEW” project that aims to find out how the climate-damaging CO2 can be used industrially as a raw material. The episode on the “NEUROTEC” project is entitled “Smart Model: Our Brain and the Computers of the Future” (28 October). It focuses on the role our brain will play in developing the IT of the future. Children's toys made of potato peelings, clothes made of wood, and paper made of grass? These are just three fascinating examples from the “BioökonomieREVIER” initiative that will be presented on 4 November.

How can supercomputers help us live and work in the future? And how can Jülich's research in turn help companies to put this into practice? The “Agency for Cognitive Computing” (ACC) project aims to find answers to these questions (11 November). At the Jülich Ernst Ruska-Centre for Microscopy and Spectroscopy with Electrons (ER-C), electrons are used to investigate new materials for batteries, computers, and medications. The episode on 18 November will reveal what methods and instruments scientists use to achieve this. The last vlog of the series on 25 November will deal with research on green hydrogen.
