Research and Science at TU Kaiserslautern
The University of Kaiserslautern (TU Kaiserslautern) has a strong focus on science and research. The aim is to promote research excellence by fostering the work of its scientists and creating the optimal starting conditions for junior researchers to achieve top performances.
Excellence in Research
As one of the winners of the first phase, the Graduate School for Materials Science in Mainz (MAINZ) received funding for the next five years of approximately eleven million euros. In collaboration with Johannes-Gutenberg University in Mainz, TU Kaiserslautern has submitted a request for the continuation of the programme.
In the context of the research initiative of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate, the university hopes to set up additional collaborative programmes and provide the best possible working conditions for junior researchers as well as support special individual projects. By supporting selective fields of research and research centers, the initiative facilitates the bundling of competencies and the realization of innovative research projects.
The ongoing projects at the university based on coordinated external research contribute greatly towards establishing a distinct university profile. The joint ventures with well known partners help the university to establish additional, modern infrastructure and to better position itself nationally and internationally as a center of scientific and academic excellence.
