2020 // Interview for www.bioökonomie.de: „Building houses from fungi“

In June 2020, Vera Meyer was happy to answer the questions of the editors of www.bioökonomie.de. The interview is about fungi, art, citizen science and of course bioeconomy – in short: absolutely worth reading. Click here to read.

2020 // Interview for Radio France

Radio France visited our department and asked Vera Meyer, Bertram Schmidt and Kushtrim Cerimi, how fungi can contribute to biobased circular economy. The interview resulted in two podcasts, which were broadcasted in June 2020. French-loving people are invited to listen to podcast 1 and podcast 2. Nous vous souhaitons beaucoup de plaisir!

2020 // Interview for the radio station Bayerischer Rundfunk

The radio station Bayerischer Rundfunk took notice of the joint press release of the TU Berlin and the TU Munich concerning the 2020 white paper of the think tank Eurofung (speaker Vera Meyer). Philipp Benz (TU Munich) and Charlotte Steiniger from our department told the host Renate Ell for the magazine "IQ - Science and Research" on June 17, what we can and might do with fungi today and in future.

2020 // Interview for RadioEins: Our contribution to the virtual long night of science

Lupe

Our holistic research concept at the department – to understand fungi as friends and foes and to use that as a driving force for biotechnologial applications – was presented on June 6 at the virtual long night of science on RadioEins. Our postdocs Charlotte Steiniger and Bertram Schmidt met the challenge and answered the  questions of the host Julia Vismann. Click here to listen (sorry, only in German).

2020 // Joint press release of TU Berlin and the Technical University of Munich: How Fungi Are Becoming the Future

From the press release: "How will we be able to feed 10 billion people in the not too distant future without causing widespread environmental damage? How can we meet the rising demand for leather and textiles among a growing population while significantly reducing water consumption and avoiding animal suffering? How can we stop using petroleum and still be able to manufacture chemical industry products? How can we construct climate-neutral buildings without using environmentally harmful concrete? These are just some of the questions which humankind is facing today. Potential answers to all these questions can be found in the latest developments in fungal biotechnology, which can now be read in a white paper entitled „Growing a circular economy with fungal biotechnology“."

2020 // DECHEMA newsletter: Fungi as basis for bioeconomy

Lupe

Just as the DECHEMA wrote in their newsletter about the recently published white paper:

"A white paper of the think tank EUROFUNG shows how filamentous fungi might become a central basis for bioeconomy." Enjoy reading!

2020 // Mind the Fungi! short information movie on German television (ZDF moma:future)

These days, we welcomed some visitors from the German television channel ZDF in our department, who informed themselves about our project "Mind the Fungi!". Based on this, they created a nice little information movie about fungi as construction materials of the future, which was broadcasted in ZDF moma:future. Whoever understands German should absolutely watch it!
