Four Clusters of Excellence Successful at LMU
Four Clusters of Excellence submitted by LMU, which were all put forward in collaboration with the Technical University of Munich (TUM), were successful and will receive funding from 2019 on. “We are very pleased with this very good result in a demanding and highly competitive selection process,” said LMU President Bernd Huber. “It is a clear indication of LMU’s great strengths in research, and a testimony to the outstanding work and tireless commitment of our researchers. I want to thank all faculty and staff involved in the competition,” the President added. The successful projects deal with research topics ranging from systems neurology and energy research to quantum science and the origin of the universe. With this success LMU has qualified to participate in the competition for the funding line Universities of Excellence.
