FUSION is the name for a vivid group working on several ongoing research and developing projects in parallel. All projects share the common effort of developing a better human future. Research topics in biodiversity are highly interdisciplinary and diverse (comprising e.g. bioinformatics, biology, geoscience, computer science, software development, exploratories ...) and so are we.
The Heinz-Nixdorf Chair for Distributed Information Systems at the University of Jena was established in November 2004 and has been funded until 2009 – as the name suggests – by the Heinz-Nixdorf StiftungExternal link.External link
Since then, the group developed dynamically: People from all over the world are members of our group's teams and the rather large group convenes for great social activities such as
- FUSION hike
- FUSION christmas party
- FUSION summer party
- FUSION retreat
(and many more)
