    The Excellence Initiative
    at the University of Konstanz

    From the very beginning of the Excellence Initiative in 2006/2007, the University of Konstanz has been successful in all three funding lines of the Excellence Initiative. The goal of the Excellence Initiative is to promote top-level research and to strengthen the research location in a sustainable way.

    Three of our four cluster initiatives have been invited to submit full proposals in the context of the Excellence Strategy.
