Clusters of Excellence

Clusters of Excellence are an essential part of the federal and state governments’ excellence strategy for top university research. In this funding line, internationally competitive research areas at German universities are supported on a project-related basis. By enabling diverse collaborations and providing research infrastructure, the Clusters of Excellence offer excellent conditions for excellent research.

The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences is involved in three of the four currently funded Clusters of Excellence at the University of Cologne.
