ERS Project Archive
During the first and second phases of the Excellence Initiative, Boost Funds, Project Houses, and Speed Projects were funded by ERS in addition to Seed Fund projects.
Below is an overview of completed ERS projects.
Completed ERS Projects
Project Houses Established Through ERS Support
Center for Automotive Catalytic Systems Aachen – ACA
The ACA bridges the gap between chemistry, physics and mechanical engineering in the interdisciplinary research field of exhaust aftertreatment for mobile applications. The goal of the project house is to investigate and develop catalytic systems as a key technology for efficient and environmentally friendly propulsion systems for future challenges. The focus lies on the develpoment of materials and production processes as well as adapted operation strategies, with the ACA acting as central contact for international industrial or academic collaborations.
StreetScooter.Boost: Virtual Project House for Electric Mobility
The Virtual Project House for Electric Mobility and the Agency for Electric Mobility (GSE) are contact partners at RWTH Aachen in the interdisciplinary field of electric mobility. The most diverse questions about this important field of research are being investigated at over 30 different research insitutes at RWTH Aachen. The GSE provides partners from politics and the industry and all coopartion partners with central access to the expertise at RWTH Aachen in the field of electric mobility.
Center of Molecular Transformations – CMT
The CMT orginated from the interdisciplinary growth area "Molecular Science and Engineering"; the primary goals of this newly established project house include developing sustainable methods and processes for molecular transformation and making a contribution to the preparation of alternative carbon sources (biomasses, CO2). Therefore, the project house works in the field of catalysis research, under the integration of approaches and methods from chemo-catalysis, bio-catalysis, and process engineering.
