Decisions on the first round of the excellence initiative announced

Funding decisions for the first round of the Excellence Initiative have been made. After a total of 88 proposals for the three funding lines were evaluated and discussed by international review panels and the Joint Commission of the German Science Council and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation), the Excellence Initiative Grants Committee has awarded funding to 18 graduate schools, 17 clusters of excellence, and three institutional strategies. The decisions were announced in Bonn by the Federal Minister of Education and Research, Dr. Annette Schavan, as well as the Ministers of Science and Research, Professor Peter Frankenberg (Baden-Wrttemberg) and Professor Jrgen Zllner (Rhineland-Palatinate).
