Since 2016 the BTU established overall six Clusters in the GRS as part of the strategy to strengthen the university research profile. Clusters are flexible units that shall contribute to the creation of critical masses in the core research areas of BTU. At the same time they are an important instrument of promoting young researchers.
Every Cluster receives funding from the GRS to award a specific number of doctoral scholarships to outstanding graduates.
The following Clusters have been established:
- »Integrated analysis of Multifunctional Fruit production landscapes to promote ecosystem services and sustainable land-use under climate change« (2020)
- »Regeneration processes of ageing« (2020)
- »Signatures of disturbed landscapes – case study mining landscapes« (2018)
- »Hybrid Simulation of GaN-HEMTs and Microwave Circuits« (2018)
- »Local production by smart value chains« (2016)
- »Cognitive Dependable Cyber Physical Systems« (2016)
- »Stochastic methods for fluid flow and transport processes« (2016)
- »Functional Materials and Film Systems for Efficient Energy Conversion« (2016)
