Clusters of Excellence

As one of the most important research universities in Germany, the University of Bonn has been able to call six clusters of excellence its own since January 2019 - more than any other university in the country. The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences is involved in four of these clusters (twice in a leading role).
