New recombination experiments with merged cold beams of electrons and atomic ions have been carried out at the storage ring facilities TSR in Heidelberg, ESR in Darmstadt, and CRYRING in Stockholm. A brief overview is given on the recent activities in which the Giessen group was engaged. Topics of this research were dielectronic recombination (DR) of astrophysically relevant ions, recombination of highly charged ions with respect to cooling losses in storage rings, field effects on DR, search for interference effects in photorecombination of ions, correlation effects in DR of low-Z ions, spectroscopy of high-Z ions by DR, and lifetimes of metastable states deduced from DR experiments.
