Cross-disciplinary research is the solution to the most important social and scientific challenges of the future. In this collaborative project "ProLAB - Project Laboratory Across Borders" at the Technische Universität Braunschweig, young scientists with different scientific backgrounds work together at the interface of life sciences, natural sciences and engineering. One overarching goal here is to expand their own expertise with solid knowledge of the partner disciplines.
Since 2016 a close collaboration between the Institut für Hochfrequenztechnik, Department of Electrical Engineering, Information Technology, Physics, and the Institute of Microbiology, Department of Life Sciences, of Technische Universität Braunschweig started, which evolved first cross-disciplinary results. Since the beginning of 2021, both institutes have been working together in this project "ProLAB" funded by the Volkswagen Stiftung in the program "Kurswechsel".
