TUD scores in all funding lines of the German Excellence Initiative

Our university has succeeded in all funding lines with all its four proposals: Together with the Institutional Strategy both proposals for Clusters of Excellence, the Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden (cfAED) in which our chair is significantly involved and the Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden (CRTD), as well as the Dresden International Graduate School for Biomedicine and Bioengineering (DIGS-BB) were approved.

"During the last weeks and months, we have joined all our forces in order to succeed in the Excellence Initiative by the German Federal and State Governments. The fact that we have now achieved this goal and find ourselves among the German 'elite universities' is the appropriate reward for one of the most dynamic universities in Germany, for our outstanding members of staff and for our convincing Institutional Strategy. It is a clear sign that our work is being recognized", said Prof. Müller-Steinhagen, Rector of the TU Dresden (TUD), in a first happy reaction to the decision. TUD is one of eleven universities that were identified as an "elite university" within the second programme phase of the Excellence Initiative.It is the main goal of all the measures listed in the Institutional Strategy to attract the best scientists and scholars, staff and students from all over the world. Among other steps, the university will establish an innovative procedure for professorial appointments, tailor-made programs to further qualify outstanding students and junior scientists as well as a Graduate Academy. Moreover, optimized support will be provided for the whole university by state-of-the-art IT-systems and reorganized administrative structures. In addition, the research alliance DRESDEN-concept will be further intensified in order to enhance synergies between the university and the non-university research institutions. The Free State of Saxony will accompany and substantially support TUD on its way.
