Neubrandenburg – June 11, 2024: Great confidence in the work of Neubrandenburg researchers: The Ministry of Education and Research has given the green light to another flagship project of ‚PHYSICS FOR FOOD – EINE REGION DENKT UM!‘ With funding of around 200,000 euros, the researchers are currently continuing to work on improving the storage protection of our grain harvests – especially on a scale that could be of interest to users.
