The DZLM goes into the second round

The Deutsche Zentrum für Lehrerbildung Mathematik (DZLM), which was initiated by the Deutsche Telekom Stiftung, has been very successful as the first federal interstate contact point to go for further education in mathematics since October 2011. The German Telekom Foundation will be supporting the DZLM for another three years with 4.5 million euros by the end of 2019. The director of DZLM, Professor Jürg Kramer (a member of IRIS Adlershof) is very pleased about the further funding and associated recognition of the previous work of the DZLM, in which the Humboldt University played a large part as the coordinating university for the program.
The DZLM has been developing research-based and applied further education programs that are continually being researched and constantly improved in cooperation with the federal states and academic institutions. Kramer projects that they will be more strongly focused on long-term further education programs for teachers who in turn will educate and accompany others as multiplicators. The existing net works and cooperation will be built up with the educational administration. IRIS Adlershof congratulates the successful project applicants and, of course, its member Jürg Kramer heartily.



Construction work on IRIS Research Building started

After the federal and state Gemeinsame Wissenschaftskonference (GWK) (Joint Science Conference) decided in June 2013 to finance a research building for IRIS Adlershof’s project, “Hybrid systems for electronics, optoelectronics, and phototonics,” and after completion of comprehensive planning and work and a subsequent call for proposals, construction has now begun on the building site of “Zum Großen Windkanal 6.”
