Clusters of Excellence

Cluster of Excellence - "Precision Medicine in Chronic Inflammation"

As a joint undertaking of the universities in Kiel and Lübeck, in collaboration with the University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein, the Research Center Borstel and the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology in Plön, as well as the Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Kiel, the German Research Foundation (DFG) has been supporting the cluster "Precision Medicine in Chronic Inflammation" since 2019. It follows the cluster "Inflammation at Interfaces (I@I)", which has been funded since the start of the Excellence Initiative in 2007.

Cluster of Excellence - "ROOTS - Social, Environmental, and Cultural Connectivity in Past Societies"

ROOTS aims to explore the roots of social, environmental, and cultural phenomena and processes that substantially marked past human development. In a broad interdisciplinary conceptual framework, archaeological and historical ‘laboratories’ will be investigated under the basic assumption that humans and environments have deeply shaped each other, creating socio-environmental connectivities which still persist today.
