Clusters of Excellence


3D Matter Made to Order

The vision of the Cluster is to establish scalable digital three-dimensional (3D) Additive Manufacturing reaching all the way from the molecular, via the nanometer and micrometer, to the macroscopic scale. This vision is nothing less than the ultimate digitization of 3D manufacturing and material processing.

Centre for Integrative Biological Signalling Studies

Between the cells of complex living organisms, there is a constant exchange of biological signals. This dense network of dynamic signalling processes is a prerequisite for cells to coordinate their tasks, form complex tissues, and, at the same time, adapt to environmental conditions. The aim of CIBSS is to understand this “language of life” and to be able to communicate in it.
