HCM prolonged for seven more years

We are very happy and proud that the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics was again successful in the federal Excellence Strategy and will be funded for seven more years.

The University of Bonn received with great euphoria the commission’s decision to fund six Clusters of Excellence at the University of Bonn – more than any other university in Germany.

The successful Clusters of Excellence at the University of Bonn are:

  • Hausdorff Center for Mathematics: Foundations, Models, Applications
  • ImmunoSensation2: the immune sensory system
  • Beyond Slavery and Freedom: Asymmetrical Dependencies in Pre-Modern Societies
  • PhenoRob - Robotics and Phenotyping for Sustainable Crop Production
  • ML4Q – Matter and Light for Quantum Computing (together with RWTH Aachen and the University of Cologne)
  • CONtribute: Markets and Public Policy (together with the University of Cologne)

From January 1, 2019, the Clusters of Excellence will receive funding of up to ten million euros per year for an initial period of seven years. In total, 57 cluster initiatives received funding commitments.

In addition to the Hausdorff Center, the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft will fund three more Clusters of Excellence in mathematics in the future, located at Berlin, Münster and Heidelberg.
