The University of Münster supports cutting-edge research in high-performance areas. At the same time, its broad range of research fields creates a unique, interdisciplinary network within the University. The two Excellence Clusters “Religion and Politics” and “Cells in Motion”, established with funding from the German federal and state Excellence Initiative, as well as the Collaborative Research Centres and other academic organisations, are evidence of the outstanding reputation of the University of Münster.
