The Excellence Strategy of the Federal and State Governments consists of two funding lines, Clusters of Excellence and Universities of Excellence. The German Research Foundation and the German Council of Science and Humanities have issued calls for application in a two-stage competitive procedure. The University is utilising the chance to attain long-term funding. In February 2018, the university submitted full proposals for four Clusters of Excellence and a letter of intent for the “Universities of Excellence” funding line. The Research Department supervises the proposals for the “Clusters of Excellence” funding line, whilst the Campus Office is responsible for the proposals relating to the "Universities of Excellence" funding line.
