Our research initiatives are interdisciplinary research projects in which individuals from various distinctive areas of specialization and often from different departments of the university collaborate to solve complex research questions and challenges which cannot be adequately addressed by a single discipline. Due to its multidisciplinary approach and broad scientific participation, the Profil Topic has succeeded in acquiring funding from federal and state governments, the German Research Foundation, and industry for a number of prestigious collaborative projects.
