Materials of the future – Nanotechnology

Areas of research in the field of nanotechnology are defined as those that deal with particles and structures with sizes ranging from individual atoms up to 100 nanometres. Within that range, it is possible to create a principled distinction between the manipulation of a nanoscale material structure (nanostructures), or whether the research deals with complete objects with overall sizes that remain within nanoscale boundaries (nano-objects).

Candidate Experience – when every application is an experience

Candidate Experience – when every application is an experience

Employer Branding and Candidate Experience are closely related. If there is a weakness in one, there will be consequences for the other. The current state of the labour market means that a powerful employer brand is essential to set yourself apart from the competition and to attract skilled workers in sufficient numbers. However, if the candidate journey through the hiring process leaves behind a negative impression, the Employer Brand will be affected. As such, what can businesses do to ensure that employees and candidates are both at the heart of their operations?

Digital implementation – Heaven or Hell?

Digital implementation – Heaven or Hell?

Buzzwords like Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Industry 4.0 are everywhere, but are often used imprecisely and in a way that lacks substance. As part of the “Digital Implementation” event organised by ARTS in late June, a specialist audience was able to see for themselves, with specific examples from the worlds of space and aviation and best practice demonstrations, what digitalisation can mean in concrete terms. Experts from ARTS and manaTec provided an insight into some of their current projects and were also available for questions and discussions after their presentations.

Carbon fibre in the fast lane

A single fibre is just a fraction of the thickness of a human hair. When combined, however, carbon fibre is an extremely light yet strong material that is now an essential part of aircraft and automotive construction, offering almost limitless possibilities, particularly when combined with other materials.

Nanosatellites – little boxes with a big impact

Nanosatellites – little boxes with a big impact

Nanosatellites are in the process of fundamentally changing communications in space. By positioning hundreds of small satellites in space, it will be possible to create a broad network of information systems around the earth to revolutionise data gathering. Even journeys to distant solar systems now seem to be more than a distant pipe dream in light of the highly promising characteristics of these miniature satellites.
