We have made it! After a little more than 1 ½ years of conception and application phase, ETOS - Electrifying Technical Organic Syntheses was selected as one of seven Clusters4Future.
In a two-stage application process, JGU Mainz and KIT, headed by Prof. Dr. S. R. Waldvogel and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ulrike Krewer, prevailed against 117 other applicants. The cluster will be funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research for up to nine years with a maximum of 45 million euros. In 2023, the first of up to three implementation phases will start.
