We are very happy that last week Dr. Stephan Diederich and Dr. Bernd Herrenkind successfully defended their dissertations on "Designing Anthropomorphic Conversational Agents in Enterprises: A Nascent Theory and Conceptual Framework for Fostering a Human-Like Interaction" and "Driving the Future Diffusion of Mobility: Investigating User Acceptance of Autonomous Driving in Shared Mobility Services". We congratulate both and are happy that we were able to join them "at a distance" to toast their success. Dear Stephan, we thank you for the good cooperation and the many exciting discussions about chatbots in the past years. You have greatly enriched our team and we wish you all the best for the future. We hope very much that we will stay in contact with you. Dear Bernd, thank you for two years of collaboration. You have spread a lot of good humor in our team and have helped us a lot.

New project about regional produced fuels
Making mobility as sustainable as possible is an important goal in many regions. The use of a climate-friendly fuel for transportation should therefore be established regionally, from production to consumption. Therefore, we are looking forward to work together with the Berlin start-up ELO-Mobility and the South Lower Saxony Foundation and to collaboratively develop a cross-sectoral concept that brings economic and ecological advantages.
The idea behind the concept is the application of an innovative technology, plasmalysis, to produce hydrogen. The resulting by-products can be used in other industries, thus developing a cross-sector network.
