    EU funds four research infrastructure projects with strong GSI/FAIR participation

    Several GSI/FAIR research areas receive EU funding in the millions. Four planned infrastructure projects in the fields of tumor therapy with heavy ions, innovative methods for industrial radiation testing and new technology developments for accelerator facilities were successful in current EU tenders and have received funding commitments. FAIR and GSI play a decisive role in each of these projects, which are carried out in international collaborations.

    Vitamin D supplementation: possible gain in life years plus cost savings

    In recent years, three meta-analyses of clinical studies have come to the conclusion that vitamin D supplementation was associated with a reduction in the mortality rate from cancer of around 13 percent. Scientists at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) have now transferred these results to the situation in Germany and calculated: If all Germans over the age of 50 were to take vitamin D supplements, up to 30,000 cancer deaths per year could possibly be avoided and more than 300,000 years of life could be gained - in addition, health care costs could be saved.

    More women in science – BIH and MDC host film screening, lecture and discussion

    February 11 marks the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. The Berlin Institute of Health (BIH) and the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in the Helmholtz Association (MDC) are hosting a joint virtual event that will feature a film screening, a keynote lecture and a panel discussion. We want to examine and discuss what changes are needed to make science more diverse, equitable and inclusive.

    Shorter but more intense

    Drought periods in Europe are shorter but more intense since the beginning of the 20th century. Moreover high temperatures, often accompanying these droughts, cause greater water loss from the soil. This has a significant negative effect on agriculture and vegetation in general. This is the result made by an international team of scientists with the participation of the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) in a study released in Science Advances.
