On 23 September, the foundation stone of the new research building CALEDO was laid at the North Campus of TU Dortmund University. CALEDO stands for "Center for Advanced Liquid-Phase Engineering Dortmund" and next to RESOLV, it will be the second location dedicated to cutting-edge research in solvation science with RESLOV.
In addition to CALEDO spokesperson Prof. Gabriele Sadowski, RESOLV spokesperson Prof. Dr. Martina Havenith and the Rector of TU Dortmund University Prof. Manfred Bayer, representatives from the federal and state governments were also present. Together they filled a time capsule and symbolically sank it into a brick cube. Among other things, the CALEDO funding application and certificate, a small TU Dortmund University logo, the building plans for CALEDO, a typical Dortmund rhinoceros and a current newspaper from Dortmund , will stand the test of time in the time capsule.
Once the building is completed, CALEDO will offer laboratory and office areas for interdisciplinary research work in the fields of bio- and chemical engineering, chemistry and chemical biology as well as physics on 5 floors and around 4,000 square metres of floor space. The new research building for Solvation Science is funded with around 72 million euros from the federal state and NRW state government.
