A total of 195 initiatives were submitted. Unfortunately, we were not amongst the group of applicants who were invited by the DFG to, submit a full application.
The University of Passau can nonetheless be very proud of the fact that we are one of the universities that was able to combine all of its strengths for participation in the Excellence Strategy. I am also convinced of the scientific significance of "Cyber<>Spaces", and we will now make every effort to use the results of the application for new projects, such as for special research areas or research training groups.
I would like to sincerely thank all staff members and colleagues who contributed to the creation of the draft proposal for "Cyber<>Spaces", which has significantly advanced our ability to mount large-scale projects and demonstrated our potential.
Prof. Dr. Carola Jungwirth
