Strategic Innovation Funds

In order to stimulate collaboration and new projects among the participating scientists in the cluster and other researchers on campus, as well as to provide additional postdoc support, we have created the instrument known as a strategic innovation fund. Specific allocation of strategic innovation funds to individual researchers (or groups of researchers) has been made based on a written proposal. Since the goal is to stimulate collaboration, priority has been given to interdisciplinary research proposals.


The following strategic innovation fund projects were recently funded by the Cluster of Excellence:


Strategic innovation fund projects typically fund about one researcher per project.
