Clusters of Excellence

In Clusters of Excellence, established investigators in various disciplines work together on solutions to problems of broad scientific and socioeconomic relevance – in close cooperation with non-university research institutions and commercial firms.

The stature of the scientists involved and the quality of the research environment provided ensure that the Clusters also offer optimal training and career development opportunities for junior researchers.

 

  • Nanosystems Initiative Munich (NIM)

    nim_neu_web

    It is one of the principal objectives of NIM to create a broad range of artificial and multifunctional nanosystems, to understand the way they function and ultimately to control them. The focus ranges from quantum nanophysics to nanosystems for energy conversion and biomedical nanotechnologies. more

  • Center for integrated Protein Science Munich (CiPSM)

    cips_neu_web

    At CiPSM, scientists are developing a new kind of protein research. The focus of interest is on the role of proteins, which as central biological macro-molecules condition, among other things, the structure and function of all organisms. more

  • Munich-Centre for Advanced Photonics (MAP)

    map_neu_web

    At MAP, researchers in photonics are developing new coherent light sources and laser-driven particle sources. MAP's aims are to achieve higher intensities, complete control of light pulses, better frequency precision and higher pulse power. more

  • Munich Cluster for Systems Neurology (SyNergy)

    synerg_neu_web

    Neurodegenerative, inflammatory and vascular disorders have traditionally been studied in isolation from each other. SyNergy has chosen to take an integrative approach to unravel the interactions between the different underlying pathologies. more

  • Origin and Structure of the Universe (Speaker University: TUM)

    Logo_univers_web

    The Cluster brings together around 250 astrophysicists, nuclear and particle physicists to decipher the innermost structure of matter, space and time, probing the nature of the fundamental forces, and exploring the development, geometry and composition of the Universe. more
