RWTH Aachen: Exzellenzcluster Tailor-Made Fuels from Biomass

Tailor-Made Fuels from Biomass

The excellence cluster is focused on identifying innovative solutions for the customised conversion of the major components of plant material into value-added products, particularly for fuels and fuel components as the most important technological and scientifically challenging application.

RWTH Aachen: Cluster of Excellence Ultra High-Speed Mobile Information and Communication

Research cluster established under the excellence initiative of the German government

The goal of this cluster is the interdisciplinary design of Ultra high-speed Mobile Information and Communication systems (UMIC) providing an order of magnitude improvement of the perceived quality of service. Concepts and demonstrators for smart, mobile, broadband, low-cost systems will be developed which support the demanding applications of the next-decade mobile Internet.

RWTH Aachen: Cluster of Excellence "Integrative Production Technology for High-Wage Countries" More than ever before, companies in Germany are facing global competition. Therefore, the question for constraints and success factors to economic product development and production in high-wage countries like Germany needs an answer, particularly in case of products that do not address niche markets but serve mass markets that are of relevance for national economics. more
TU Berlin: Exzellenzcluster Unifying Concepts in Catalysis

New Cluster of Excellence

Our vision is to unify concepts in catalysis by bridging the gaps between homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, between elementary gas-phase reactions and complex processes in highly organised biological systems, as well as between fundamental and applied catalysis research.

TU Darmstadt: Exzellenzcluster Smart Interfaces

New Excellence Cluster at the TU Darmstadt

In the Custer of Excellence "Smart Interfaces" natural scientists and engineers research how microscopic structures on surfaces of materials affect the transportation of heat, fluids and gasses and how this can be controlled efficiently.

teaser 4133

The Cluster is supported by the Leading-Edge Cluster Encouragement of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research

The aim of the Leading-Edge Cluster “Cool Silicon” is to build the technology basis for a massive increase of energy efficiency in the information and communications technology (ICT) sector.

TU Dresden: Exzellenzcluster ECEMP

ECEMP - European Centre for Emerging Materials and Processes Dresden

In the 14 subprojects of ECEMP, research is focused on the development of multi- component materials and their associated technologies for the three future fields of ECEMP: energy management, environmental technology and lightweight engineering.

TU Dresden: Exzellenzcluster From Cells to Tissues to Therapies

Basic research aimed at developing improved treatment methods

The principal goal of the Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden (CRTD) is to pursue basic research aimed at developing improved treatment methods for previously incurable diseases. It is the first research centre in Germany focussing on adult stem cells.

SFB 528
TU Dresden: Textile Bewehrungen zur bautechnischen Verstärkung und Instandsetzung

With textile reinforcements ultimate capacity of reinforced concrete and timber structures can be improved

Since 1999 scientists of the collaborative research centre 528 work on the baiscs for usage of textile reinforcement for structural strengthening and repair. With textile reinforcements ultimate capacity can be improved as well as higher qualities concerning usability and durability of reinforced concrete structures and timber structures.

TU Dresden: Zentrum für Strahlenforschung

New building of a centre for patient-oriented radiation research in the Oncology supported by the Saxon excellence initiative.

After the successful procurement of an excellence cluster and a graduate school within the excellence initiative of the federation and its states the TU Dresden succeeded again in the Saxon excellence initiative with further research projects. 

Universität Hannover: Exzellenzcluster Regenerative Biology and Reconstructive Therapy

The centre integrates excellent training with innovative science and experimental as well as clinical medicine.

Based on its long standing history in transplantation medicine and on existing extensive activities in cell therapy and tissue engineering, Hannover Medical School has recently funded a centre for basic and clinical research in the area of Regenerative Biology and Reconstructive Therapy, acronym REBIRTH.

Universität Hannover: Exzellenzcluster QUEST

QUEST - Centre for Quantum Engineering and Space-Time Research

Based on well established strategic partnerships between the Leibniz Universität Hannover (LUH) and renowned scientific institutions in its vicinity as well as industrial partners a unique blend of competence in quantum engineering and space-time research has been accumulated. This body of experience has led to the founding of the interdisciplinary Centre for Quantum Engineering and Space-Time Research, with the acronym QUEST.

Karlsruher Institut für Technologie: Exzellenzcluster Centrum für Funktionelle Nanostrukturen

A bridging between the key technologies of the 21th century - nanotechnology and life sciences

The CFN (Center for Functional Nanostructures) at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is an interdisciplinary research center dedicated to fundamental and applied research in some of the most fascinating fields in nanotechnology.

TU München: Exzellenzcluster Fundamentalphysik - Ursprung und Struktur des Universums

Research in fundamental questions of physics

Where did our Universe come from? What is it made of? What drives its evolution? How did its fundamental building blocks, galaxies, stars and planets form? Which processes generated the elements out of which we are made of? These fundamental questions will be addressed by this cluster of excellence.

TU München: Exzellenzcluster Kognition für technische Systeme (CoTeSys)

CoTeSys combines research competence in neuroscience, natural sciences, mathematics, engineering, computer science and humanities

The CoTeSys cluster of excellence investigates cognition for technical systems such as vehicles, robots, and factories. Cognitive technical systems are equipped with artificial sensors and actuators, integrated and embedded into physical systems, and act in a physical world.

Universität Stuttgart: Exzellenzcluster Simulationstechnik (SimTech)

From Isolated Numerical Approaches to an Integrative Systems Science

The Cluster of Excellence in Simulation Technology will have the power to strengthen the sustainable evolution of research areas that are of fundamental importance in both science and the economy, as well as to conceive new and visionary applications of simulation sciences. The goal of this proposal is to further intensify the university's engagement in the field of Simulation Technology in order to maintain and to expand our excellent standing in this important and trend-setting field in a dedicated intersectorial structure.
