How is something new created? Creative destroyers and out-of-the-box thinkers provide answers – now in the new issue of our knowledge magazine contact.

Disruption can be useful – and sometimes even necessary. Why – and what does TÜV Rheinland link to the principle of creative destruction? You can find out about this in the new issue of our knowledge magazine contact.

Cover story disRUPTION

An interview with Dr. Michael Fübi: Without creative destruction, there would be no economic development. That’s why TÜV Rheinland also relies on this approach.

Room for a new way of thinking: Few words have as negative of a connotation as ‘destruction.’ That’s not wholly justified, though; without destruction, a lot of things wouldn’t exist.

Escape, conflict and disruptors: Destruction is a very meaningful concept for urban biologist Frank Backwinkler, sport pedagogy professor Dr. Harald Lange, and organizational psychologist Adam Grant.

In – occasional – praise of destruction: Why smartphone updates cause carelessness | CAR-T: A ‘vehicle’ for boosting immune systems | How a palace became the site of a forum | An excellent finish.

Security doesn’t get in for free, either: Event security comes at a high cost. How much privacy should be sacrificed to aid surveillance?

Digital togetherness: When man and machine become more closely intertwined, digitalization can be advantageous.

Tested explosion protection: Explosion protection is particularly important in the oil, gas, food and automotive industries.

Three-element energy: All new buildings have heat pumps. This energy-efficient heating method is becoming increasingly popular.

The calm before the storm: Was the Big Bang the beginning of it all? Or was it just one step in a chain of developments? An interview with physics expert Martin Bojowald
