Develop your visions

With the relocation of the Leipzig Messe north of the city, new opportunities for science and research arose in the south-eastern section of Leipzig. Thus the Old Trade Fair Grounds (“Alte Messe Leipzig”) with centuries of history now offer generous spaces and exhibition hall areas for diverse applications and for almost every kind of commercial activity.

On the basis of these diverse realities, the project BioCity Campus was initiated, which was dedicated primarily to implementation of the following goals:

  • Usa of the unique developmental dynamic of the bio-tech-oriented Life-Science fields that have settled down at the Old Trade Fair grounds
  • Development of a typically urban building ensemble that provides, as a “technology campus”, a high level of identification for those already established there, while also increasing the national recognition factor
  • Inclusion of the urban-public sphere into the technological development of the Life-Science sector; young people in particular should be drawn into the natural and engineering sciences
  • Designing innovative use and development concepts and putting them to the test
  • Development of new, unconventional cooperation structures between politics, science and civil society in the context of urban development

More is better: the diversity and number of soil animals determine leaf decomposition in the forest

iDiv Leipzig/Göttingen. Small animals that decompose fallen leaves in the forest form complex food webs and are essential to a functioning ecosystem. A study comprising over 80 forests in Germany and on Sumatra (Indonesia) has now shown that two factors particularly influence this function when examined over larger landscapes: the number of animals and their species diversity. In previous studies, the connection between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning had been investigated mostly in small test areas. […]
