That's how it is
Basic research in biology and medicine usually takes place on an unseen and not easily accessible level. In Kiel, researchers have worked together with a design team to create a digital exhibit that uses visualisation to make research work understandable for those who are not experts in the subject, too.
We've done it! Our university has achieved success in the German Excellence Strategy - with two Clusters, major joint research projects over several faculties and with our partners. The past months and years have produced incredible achievements by all those involved, and placed Schleswig-Holstein on the world map of cutting-edge research.
The Clusters all have their interdisciplinary approach, selected to address significant social issues, in common. Interfaces – Integrative researching in productive contact-SPACES – this is the instrument which opens up our door to the university-wide status of Excellence. Open, connected and interdisciplinary: we now want to further develop this idea and sustainably implement it. I am convinced that cutting-edge research must lead to top class teaching. With fresh wind in our sails from the Cluster success, I look forward to resolutely tackling the next stages, together with all members of the university and our partners. We are facing more exciting months and years to come.
