Develop your visions

With the relocation of the Leipziger Messe (Leipzig Trade Fair) to the north of the city, new opportunities for science and research arose in the southeastern part of Leipzig. Thus the Old Trade Fair (“Alte Messe Leipzig”), with its centuries of history, now offers generous spaces and exhibition hall areas for diverse uses and almost every kind of commercial activity.

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

  • Usage of the unique developmental dynamic of the biotech-oriented life sciences fields that have located themselves at the Old Trade Fairgrounds.
  • 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 in the technological development of the life sciences sector; young people in particular should be drawn to the natural and engineering sciences.
  • Designing innovative use and development concepts and putting them to the test.
  • Development of new, unconventional collaboration structures between politics, science and civil society in the context of urban development.

Oxytocin enhances social affiliation in chimpanzee groups

Max Planck Institute. In violent intergroup conflicts between chimpanzee groups the hormone oxytocin enhances the social affiliation among members of the same group. The high costs of individuals going to war is perplexing. Individuals are willing to suffer costs in order to benefit their own group, through cooperating and supporting their fellow group members and acting with hostility towards the out-group.
