The column appears monthly and gets accessed by thousands of readers. It typically includes a 1-2 interviews with professors and senior staff. Ph.D. students are interviewed only rarely.

Daniel Martens talked about his current research interests and activities, his favorite places and activities at the university, and a mobile application he is developing together with 6 universities and the Local Ministry of Science, Research and Equality (German: Behörde für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Gleichstellung, Short: BWFG).

Date the Science

maalej_NAT2015

Prof. Maalej participated this year in the initiative Date the Science in Hamburg. He “dated” about 80 young and curious high-school students and talked with them about “Social Informatics”.

15 scientists from 5 different Universities in Hamburg offered for high school students insights into their research topics and daily work. The research topics were diverse focusing on Natural Sciences, Technology, and Engineering. This date should motivate young students to study Science and Engineering and help them pick up the right major.

This year the 5th date with scientists was organized at the Helmut-Schmidt-Univeristy.  The event is part of a larger initiative of all universities and the city of Hamburg since 2007 to get young students enthusiastic about Science, Technology and Engineering and increase the number of university students in these fields. The online portal for this initiative is called MINTSTUDIUM.HAMBURG.
