New Perspectives for Science
Clusters of Excellence are, arguably, the most influential line of funding by the German Research Foundation. With its goal to sharpen the research profile of German universities the idea is to support internationally competitive disciplines at selected sites. In the current funding round, 57 such clusters were established or received an extension, each with a funding of up to 50 million Euros for 7 years, starting in 2019.
With the funding provided by the Excellence Strategy and the existing research environment in Tübingen, our cluster will have the best starting conditions to pursue interesting research directions and try new ideas and structures.
