TU Dresden



The CRTD is primarily funded by the DFG:


  1. As a DFG Research Center (FZ 111), 6 mio. EUR p.a.
  2. As a Cluster of Excellence (EXC 168), 2 mio. EUR p.a., within the scope of the Excellence Initiative.

The DFG Research Center and the Cluster of Excellence finances research groups, technology platforms, seed grants, translational grants, central administration and covers indirect costs of the centre.

CRTD core group leaders also raise additional third party funding (48 %) through sources like the Federal Ministry of Education and Science or the EU for their projects.
