Science Prize of the City of Freising for Prof. Marek Behr and Prof. Heiko Briesen

With the "Wissenschaftspreis Weihenstephan der Stadt Freising", the scientists from Technical University of Munich (TUM) and RWTH Aachen University were awarded a prize of 12,000 euros for their joint research. The research team of Prof. Heiko Briesen, Chair for Process Systems Engineering at TUM (and a former AICES Young Researcher) and Prof. Marek Behr, Chair for Computational Analysis of Technical Systems at RWTH Aachen University, received the award for their collaborative work on "Structure Formation of Collodial Aggregates."
The two scientists found new ways to describe the multi-scale processes involving colloidal particles interacting with fluid flows by means of state-of-the-art simulation techniques and high-performance computers. The results enable the optimization of production processes in the food and pharmaceutical industry. The project is being carried out in the framework of the DFG focus program SPP 1273 "Colloidal Process Technology".
