The University of Freiburg applies for the “University of Excellence” funding line

Freiburg, Mar 12, 2019

“Connecting Creative Minds – Trinational, European, Global”: that is the motto of the institutional strategy on which the University of Freiburg is basing its application for the second funding line of the Excellence Competition. The university’s application is the result of a strategic process which drew on the ideas of more than 200 researchers, students, and administrative and technical staff. What are their goals? What projects can help them achieve these goals?

These questions are answered by six members of the University of Freiburg in brief video statements: Rector Prof. Dr. Hans-Jochen Schiewer, Prof. Dr. Markus Heinrichs, Prof. Dr. Daniela Kleinschmit, and Prof. Dr. Ulrich Haltern each speak for groups involved in the individual projects in the application, and Phillip Stöcks, student member of the Freiburg University Council and member of the Student Council of Eucor – The European Campus, as well as Dr. Verena Kremling, head of the Strategy department in the Central University Administration.

Excellence Strategy

The Excellence Strategy competition consists of two funding lines. The University of Freiburg was successful with both its applications for the first funding line “Clusters of Excellence”: as of 1st January 2019, CIBSS – Centre for Integrative Biological Signalling Studies has begun work in the field of biological signalling studies, and livMatS – Living, Adaptive and Energy-autonomous Materials Systems likewise in bio-inspired materials research. This achievement meant the university has met the requirement to apply for the “Universities of Excellence” funding line. Sixteen other universities and two university consortia are also competing. Up to eleven applications can be approved. The decision is due on 19th July 2019.
