Freiburg Rising Stars Academy

March 2020: At the “International Research Marketing Ideas Competition” organised by the German Research Foundation (DFG), the University of Freiburg was able to convince the jury with its proposal for a "Freiburg Rising Stars Academy". The project is the only one of eight successful proposals which has been awarded the prize money of 100,000 Euros. The International Office initiated the application and developed the ideas in cooperation with internal and external partners.

It is the objective of the Freiburg Rising Stars Academy to attract international young talents for joint research projects with Freiburg teams and to create sustainable international networks. Thematically, during the pilot phase the concept is focusing on profile fields of "Functional and Bioinspired Materials" and "Biological Signalling Research". The Clusters of Excellence livMatS and CIBSS were significantly involved in the application and will support the implementation of the project.
