Excellence Initiative


To support interdisciplinary interactions between the various research areas of the University of Tübingen - as envisioned in its Institutional Startegy - five research platforms were set up.

The platforms Personalised Medicine, Medical Technology, Environmental Systems Analysis and the Tübingen Center for Drug Discovery & Development (TüCAD2) support links between basic and applied research within Natural and Life Sciences.

The broad fourth platform Education-Society-Norms-Ethical Reflection offers support for networking within applied research in the Humanities and Social Sciences.

This consolidation of university and extra-university research offers the possibility to further intensify the exchange of information between the two.
