MPI-BGC_Vegetation and climate researcher receives Beutenberg Campus award
Matthias Forkel, former doctoral student at Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry, is this year’s winner of the Beutenberg Campus science award in the category „outstanding dissertation”. He will be honored for his investigations on the influence of the Northern biosphere on the rise of the seasonal fluctuations in atmospheric carbon dioxide. His work could confirm the linkage between climate and vegetation dynamics.  more...

MPI-BGC_Record growth in atmospheric CO2, in spite of stable anthropogenic emissions, due to weaker sinks
In spite of almost no growth in emissions, the growth in atmospheric CO2 concentration was at a record-high in 2015 and could be a record high again in 2016, at 23 and 25 Gt CO2 per year, respectively, compared to an average of 16 Gt CO2 per year in the previous decade. Atmospheric CO2 levels have exceeded 400 parts per million (ppm) in 2015, 44% above pre-industrial levels [data NOAA/ESRL]. This is the highest level in at least the last 800,000 years. more...
 
 
 
 
BEUTENBERG CAMPUS JENA e.V.
The Beutenberg Campus Jena e.V. is a registered association. It reflects the respective interests of the institutions assembled on the Beutenberg, a hill near Jena which boasts major research establishments, a couple of start-up centres, and an operating unit providing services. This setup is to ensure that the scientific and technological synergy that has been developed can be utilised by all members of this conglomerate.

Board meeting of the Campus Association, Beutenberg Campus Jena e.V.
The next board meeting is planned for March, 2017 in the Abbe Center Building at the Beutenberg Campus.

Forsche Schüler Tag
Every year the Beutenberg Campus invites schoolchildren to a research day where they can get to know the scientists’ working world. The invitation is parallel to Girls’ Day.
With the 'Forsche Schüler' project, 'School Scientists' from the 8th year onwards can look behind the scenes of research and ‘try out’ science. Schoolchildren can choose from a multitude of offers in the physical and life sciences, exactly in keeping with the campus motto ‘Life Science meets Physics’. Beutenberg’s many institutes offer taster workshops allowing schoolchildren to do experiments and discover science for themselves.
