    Heidelberg Laureate Forum – Funding for the participation of international young researchers STEM - Small funding projects – CZS Impulse

    Short description

    Scholarships for young researchers to participate in an international network meeting, where they will meet top-class award winners from their field. The focus is on interdisciplinary exchange and mutual inspiration.

    Highly efficient and flexible Deep Learning building blocks for Arm and Power processors Artificial Intelligence - Individual funding programmes – CZS Prisma

    Short description

    The Prisma grant from Prof. Dr Alexander Breuer, CZS Endowed Professor of Scalable Data and Computationally Intensive Analysis, is part of a collaborative project to reduce the energy requirements of Deep Learning through the use of Tensor Processing Primitives (TPPs).

    Highly efficient and flexible Deep Learning devices for Arm and Power processors Artificial Intelligence - Individual funding programmes – CZS Prisma

    Short description

    For Prof. Dr Alexander Breuer, Professor of Scalable Data and Computationally Intensive Analyses, the Prisma funding represents an important step towards a larger, high-risk project that will be carried out in close cooperation with industrial partners.

    Hybrid artificial intelligence for intelligent sensors and actuators in production (KISA) Artificial Intelligence - Project funding programmes – CZS Transfer

    Short description

    By combining various artificial intelligence methods, the aim is to develop intelligent sensors and actuators that adapt autonomously to changes and thus enable more flexible production.

    Identification and manipulation of the physiological and psychological clocks of the lifespan (IMPULS) Life Science Technologies - Project funding programmes – CZS Breakthroughs

    Short description

    People of the same chronological age often differ greatly in biological age. The aim of the project is to better understand the causes of biological ageing and to be able to measure them as accurately as possible using biomarkers.

    Infection Immunology STEM - Individual funding programmes – CZS Endowed Professorships

    Short description

    Prof. Dr. Christina Zielinski has been appointed Endowed Professor of Infection Immunology at the University of Jena with effect from the summer semester of 2021.

    Integrative Taxonomy of Insects STEM - Individual funding programmes – Carl-Zeiss-Stiftung Fund

    Short description

    Prof. Dr. Christian Rabeling will become Professor of Integrative Taxonomy of Insects at the University of Hohenheim on 1 July 2022. He previously conducted research at Arizona State University, USA.

    Intelligent Ceramic Functional Materials for Innovative Applications for Energy, Mobility and Industry 4.0 (INTELKERFUN) Resource efficiency - Project funding programmes – CZS Transfer

    Short description

    Questions relating to intelligent functional ceramics are being investigated. In addition to materials development and characterisation, component and system development up to prototype application will be covered.

    Intelligent composite fibre materials Resource efficiency - Project funding programmes – CZS Transfer

    Short description

    The aim of the project is to develop an intelligent natural fibre composite material with integrated sensors. The sensors enable continuous monitoring and thus reliable statements on the stability of the ultra-light composite material.
