Cam­pus Con­ven­ti­on in Lingen

At the end of Janu­a­ry, the 5th Cam­pus Con­ven­ti­on took place at the Uni­ver­si­ty of App­lied Sci­en­ces Osna­brück on the cam­pus in Lin­gen. Klasmann-Deilmann pre­sen­ted the peat moss pro­ject to stu­dents and repre­sen­ta­ti­ves from busi­ness and local authorities.

The Cam­pus Con­ven­ti­on brings sci­ence and busi­ness tog­e­ther. With the help of pos­ters and short lec­tures, uni­ver­si­ty mem­bers, repre­sen­ta­ti­ves of the eco­no­my and muni­ci­pa­li­ty, and the inte­res­ted public can inform them­sel­ves about inno­va­ti­ve prac­ti­cal pro­jects and rese­arch results.

Doro­thea Ram­mes (Pro­duc­tion & Sus­taina­bi­li­ty) and Ilka Kra­ne (HR) stood up for Klasmann-Deilmann and pre­sen­ted a pro­ject enti­t­led: „Peat mos­ses as a peat sub­sti­tu­te and for the rena­tu­ra­ti­on of degra­ded rai­sed bogs” to enter into dia­lo­gue with stu­dents, uni­ver­si­ty mem­bers, com­pa­ny repre­sen­ta­ti­ves and repre­sen­ta­ti­ves of tra­de asso­cia­ti­ons and the city of Lingen.

The the­me of our pro­ject clear­ly stood out from the other pos­ters on dis­play”, said Doro­thea Ram­mes. „We were able to exp­lain the mul­ti­ple ways in which peat mos­ses can be used to inte­res­ted par­ties. Among other things, we were able to illus­tra­te that by plan­ting the peat mos­ses, we can store car­bon and thus make an important con­tri­bu­ti­on to cli­ma­te protection”.

The event was a very good oppor­tu­ni­ty for the stu­dents to intro­du­ce them­sel­ves and their pro­jects to repre­sen­ta­ti­ves of the busi­ness com­mu­ni­ty. They pre­sen­ted ide­as from the fiel­ds of busi­ness admi­nis­tra­ti­on, mecha­ni­cal engi­nee­ring, indus­tri­al engi­nee­ring (espe­cial­ly ener­gy manage­ment) and com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on sci­en­ces. Their papers dealt with topics such as „Ener­ge­tic eva­lua­ti­on of a ther­mal plant in a con­fec­tion­e­ry fac­to­ry” or „Impro­ving the cus­to­mer expe­ri­ence in the Ems­land­Are­na at events”. The best stu­dent pro­jects were selec­ted by the jury and the audi­ence and were awar­ded pri­zes. For the first time, the city of Lin­gen awar­ded an inno­va­ti­on pri­ze for the best prac­ti­cal pro­ject of the students.

Two fami­li­ar faces at Klasmann-Deilmann also faced the jury on this day: Tan­ja Gnis­z­we­ski, our Ems­land scho­l­ar­s­hip hol­der, and Tobi­as Ret­tig, cur­r­ent­ly a working stu­dent.  „This is a suc­cess­ful examp­le of the good coope­ra­ti­on bet­ween Klasmann-Deilmann and Osna­brück Uni­ver­si­ty of App­lied Sci­en­ces”, said Ilka Krane.
