Kiel Nano, Surface and Interface Science (KiNSIS)

Dual success for Kiel University and its priority research area KiNSIS

Dec 09, 2020

Nano labAs the German Research Foundation (DFG) announced on Friday, 27 November 2020, it is funding the new Collaborative Research Centre (CRC) 1461 "Neurotronics: Bio-inspired Information Pathways" at Kiel University with around 11.5 million euros. In addition to that, the DFG is extending the CRC 1261 “Magnetoelectric Sensors: From Composite Materials to Biomagnetic Diagnostics”, which started in 2016, by a further four years and approximately 13.5 million euros. The interdisciplinary large-scale research projects on bio-inspired information processing and on magnetic field sensors in medical diagnostics are both located at KiNSIS at Kiel University. The commitments thus strengthen the nanoscience and surface research in Northern Germany and set the course for the future scientific orientation of the biggest university of the state of Schleswig-Holstein. 

"This is a great success for both research networks and Kiel University. The dual commitment of the DFG is clear testament of the top-level research that has been established across different disciplines - congratulations to all the researchers and partner institutions involved", said Professor Simone Fulda, President of Kiel University. "Both major projects offer exciting potential for the future at the interfaces of engineering, biology, and medicine and are important pillars of the foundation of our research in the next round of the German Excellence Strategy," continued Fulda.
