Which problem are you solving?

Born in Erlangen, in 1904 Emmy Noether was one of the first female students to be enrolled at the Friedrich-Erlangen-Universität in Erlangen, studied mathematics and was the first fully matriculated woman to earn her doctorate there in 1907. She is considered a co-founder of modern algebra.

What are you conducting research on?

On 8 November 1895, the 50-year old physician Conrad Röntgen (meaning X-ray in German and soon became its namesake), discovered X-rays in his laboratory at the University of Würzburg. This earned him the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1901. His discovery revolutionised medical diagnostics among others and led to discoveries such as radioactivity. Röntgen died on 10 February 1923 in Munich.

Collaboration in Digital Teaching

Dear faculty and everybody involved in teaching at our universities! In times of corona, we will support you in drawing up a joint digital curriculum with specialist colleagues across Bavaria, so as to reduce your preparation time and to better achieve common goals. If we have awakened your interest in sharing digital teaching materials with colleagues: Use the platform of the Virtuelle Hochschule Bayern (Virtual University Bavaria)(this enables students to view these offers too).

If you do not want to publish your materials for all students throughout Bavaria, but prefer to only share them with colleagues or even to co-develop lectures, then please use our input mask for sharing.  #strongertogether
