    3D Designer Materials STEM impulses - Large individual funding projects – CZS Applied basic science

    Short description

    In the field of 3D metamaterials, the 3D Matter Made to Order cluster is developing customized artificial materials that exhibit a wide range of features not found in nature.

    A virtual workplace for digitisation in the sciences and humanities Artificial Intelligence - Project funding programmes – CZS Breakthroughs

    Short description

    Machine learning is intended to open up new ways of processing data in human-machine interaction or fully automated. The goal is to improve the efficient use of data and to promote interdisciplinary cooperation.

    Activated transport and dynamic heterogeneous catalysis in molecular factories STEM impulses - Individual funding programmes – CZS Nexus

    Short description

    Dr Simon Krause is a chemist and materials scientist working in the field of dynamic nanoporous framework materials. He studied chemistry at the University of Nottingham and TU Dresden. Since 2021 is a group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart.

    Adsorption heat storage for the commercial heat transition Resource efficiency - Project funding programmes – CZS Transfer

    Short description

    The aim of the project is to develop an adsorption heat storage system that can store regenerative heat and provide temperatures above 100 °C, as required in the commercial and service sectors, for example.

    Advanced Scanning Electron Microscope for Research, Training and Outreach Life Science Technologies - Individual funding programmes – CZS Prisma

    Short description

    The Prisma fund will enable Prof. Dr. Andreas Hejnol, Professor of Zoology at the University of Jena, to make an existing scanning electron microscope fully usable again. This will involve updating the electronics and software.

    Ageing Smart - Smart structured areas Artificial Intelligence - Project funding programmes – CZS Breakthroughs

    Short description

    What is the perfect place to live for the baby boomer generation? To clarify this question, mathematical methods and AI technologies are analyzed that can support decision-making processes in municipalities.

    Agile production system using mobile, learning robots with multisensor technology for uncertain product specifications Artificial Intelligence - Project funding programmes – CZS Breakthroughs

    Short description

    By means of learning processes, the production system developed here reacts to product specifications and varying conditions. In the "remanufacturing" use case, discarded products are cut up and individual components are returned to production.

    Agile systems development (with a focus on regulated domains) Artificial Intelligence - Individual funding programmes – CZS Endowed Professorships

    Short description

    Prof. Dr. Marco Kuhrmann has been appointed as Endowed Professor for Agile Systems Development (with a focus on regulated domains) at Reutlingen University starting in the winter semester of 2021.

    AI-based digital twin (KIDZ) Artificial Intelligence - Project funding programmes – CZS Transfer

    Short description

    The project objective is to design an AI-based, self-learning digital twin that automatically adapts to changing system conditions and simulates the production process and product life cycle as realistically as possible.

    AI-based microbiome analysis in aging Artificial Intelligence - Large individual funding projects – CZS Individual funding

    Short description

    How can artificial intelligence in microbiome research lead to better early detection of Alzheimer's disease or type 2 diabetes? Novel AI models are being researched that are designed to predict the microbiome composition in the event of physiological changes.
