Great success: DFG funds new CRC "Geometry: Deformations and Rigidity"

The German Research Foundation (DFG) will be providing 6.5 million euros to fund a new Collaborative Research Centre at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science. The large-scale project, “Geometry: Deformations and Rigidity”, aims to develop geometry both as a subject in its own right and as a tool for other mathematical fields. The Centre has been funded for four years and will open on 1 July.

Making research easy to understand

Informing the public, in an easy-to-understand way, about developments and results in the area of research has long been an integral part of knowledge transfer at universities, including the University of Münster. The current issue of the university newspaper wissenIleben deals with faculties and multipliers who are themselves undertaking science communication - for example our Cluster of Excellence Mathematics Münster.
