Infrastructure projects backed by Wissenschaftsrat

Germany’s science council has recommended that €367 million be spent on infrastructure projects at universities.

The Wissenschaftsrat, a council of senior scientists that advises the government, held its annual spring session from 22 to 24 April in Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg. During the meeting members chose 13 university infrastructure projects to recommend to the government for support, but they said that only 10 would be affordable in 2015-16.

Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria were the most successful states. In the former, funding was recommended for the University of Freiburg’s institute for machine-brain interfacing technology, the University of Stuttgart’s centre for applied quantum technology and the University of Aalen’s centre for innovative materials.
