The Excellence Strategy at the University of Münster

The Excellence Strategy at the University of Münster

In December 2016, the University of Münster submitted four draft proposals for Excellence Clusters in accordance with the "Excellence Strategy" of the German federal and state governments. The proposals aim to secure continued funding for the University's existing clusters "Religion and Politics" and "Cells in Motion", as well as lay the groundwork for a joint research project between the Faculties of Physics and Chemistry, and another in the Faculty of Mathematics.

The University of Münster supports cutting-edge research in high-performing areas. At the same time, its broad research spectrum has given rise to a unique interdisciplinary network within the University. The Cluster of Excellence "Religion and Politics" demonstrates how this interdisciplinary research approach works.
