Excellence Strategy


The federal and state governments agreed on 16 June 2016 to a continuation of the Excellence program for fostering top-level research at German universities. The purpose of the program, now titled "Excellence Strategy," is to build on and maintain the positive dynamic generated by the two previous rounds of the Excellence Initiative. The competition includes two funding lines, Clusters of Excellence and Universities of Excellence.

As a means of preparing for the competition, the University of Freiburg established a project office led by Dr. Alexandra Bormann (Office for Strategy and University Development). The project office has been assigned the task of supervising and coordinating the strategic process for both funding lines.
