Custom-made high-performance materials are revolutionizing the world of electronics, optics, catalysis and lightweight construction. In Erlangen, materials science innovation starts at the atomic level and influences the entire process chain to achieve macroscopically visible results.

 

The Cluster of Excellence Engineering of Advanced Materials – Hierarchical Structure Formation for Functional Devices (EAM) is situated at the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) and was part of the Excellence Initiative of the German federal and state governments from 11/2007 – 10/2019. It is the only interdisciplinary research collaboration of its type in Germany to focus on the investigation of functional materials and their processing at all length scales. Its research centers on the fundamental and applied aspects of designing and creating novel high-performance materials. Supported by the 25 % allowance fund of the State Government of Bavaria, EAM will continue to act as nucleus for new research initiatives and as hub for worldwide visible excellence in materials and process research.

Quantum cooperation, research into metastases formation and new catalysts The German Research Foundation (DFG) has approved three new Collaborative Research Centres/Transregios (CRC/TRR) at FAU. The aim of CRC/TRR 305 is to understand the molecular mechanisms behind how metastases form and to devel...

Funding of new research projects – four EAM Starting Grants awarded A successful EAM tradition has been revived in 2020: With the award of the EAM Starting Grant, young FAU researchers were given the chance to pursue their own research projects and thus gaining a boost for a successful academic car...
