By the beginning of this third round of the Excellence Initiative, RWTH has already developed into an Integrated Interdisciplinary University for Science and Technology, focusing on the convergence of knowledge, methods, and insights.
The Cluster of Excellence FSC explores innovative and promising ways of converting renewable energy into liquid energy carriers with high energy density, the so called “bio-hybrid fuels”, by using biomass-based resources and carbon dioxide, and to harness them for the mobility sector.
Since January 2019, the vision that "The World becomes a Lab" is being realized in Aachen with the digitalized production of the future at the "Internet of Production", IOP for short, Cluster of Excellence.
The Aachen Graduate School Institute for Advanced Study in Computational Engineering Science (AICES) conducts interdisciplinary research at the cross-section of mathematics, computer science, and mechanical engineering.
How do we want to live? What kind of world do we want to leave future generations? These are matters of crucial importance to humankind – matters that spur scientists worldwide to find sustainable solutions and turn acquired knowledge into innovations with help from strong partners from science, industry, politics, associations and, of course, society, so that we can all benefit from them in our everyday lives.
