Welcome to the University of Freiburg Excellence Portal

This site contains information about the University of Freiburg institutions that received funding in the Excellence Initiative as well as about the continuation of the program approved in 2016, now known as the Excellence Strategy.

In addition to this online portal, the university is holding a lecture series titled “Über Forschung, Lehre und Karrierewege – Zukunftsperspektiven der Universität Freiburg" (“On Research, Teaching, and Career Paths – Prospects for the University of Freiburg’s Future”) in cooperation with the Colloquium Politicum, which offers a platform for information, discussion, and exchange on the topic of excellence.




On 27 September 2018 the Excellence Commission (international scientists and the federal and state ministers of research) made the decision to fund both the university’s cluster applications, CIBSS – Centre for Integrative Biological Signalling Studies and Living, Adaptive and Energy-autonomous Materials Systems (livMatS), from 1 January 2019. Therefore up to 100 million euro of additional funding will be invested over the next seven years to support top-level research in the fields of Biological Signalling Studies and Bioinspired Materials.

Connecting Creative Minds – Your contribution to the University of Freiburg’s strategic focus

Following the enriching conversations and discussions about the University of Freiburg’s strategic focus with members of all faculties, it is our goal now to continue this communication. Therefore we opened up a new project “Connecting Creative Minds” in our Dialogue Workshop (Dialogwerkstatt), that provides you with general information about the strategy and allows you to give us your feedback in this regard.

We will collect and thematically sort your contributions and introduce them to the relevant working groups. Please use this opportunity to help shape the future of our university.


Setting creativity free

"Connecting Creative Minds. Trinational, European, Global" is the University of Freiburg’s strategic development motto
