Collaborative Research Centres (DFG)

Here you get a list of Collaborative Research Centers at TU München:


Special Research Areas (SFBs)

  • Are long-term (generally with a duration of 12 years) university research institutes, in which scientists collaborate within the framework of interdisciplinary research programs.
  • Allow the development of long-term research projects that are challenging and complex through focussing and coordinating the particular university’s existing strengths.
  • Encourage junior scientists in particular.
  • Are characterized by cooperation across the boundaries of research fields, institutes, departments, and faculties.
  • Foster scientific relationships with international universities, research institutes, and research.

The Department “Forschungsförderung & Technologietransfer” (Office for Research and Innovation), TUM-ForTe, provides guidance to TU München scientists on submitting an application for a SFB. The TU München central administration provides funding for preparation time for the assumption of SFB and Transregios coordinator positions. For more information on finance incentives, please contact Ms. Dr. Cornelia Gotterbarm, gotterbarm@zv.tum.de.


Collaborative Research Centres (TUM)

(under TUMs coordination)

  High-Fidelity Telepresence and Teleaction (SFB 453)
The goal of the collaborative research centre is to overcome barriers between the operator and the teleoperator. Here, the barrier can be the distance, but also the scaling (small-scale telepresence - e.g. minimal invasive surgery, micro assembly - or also large-scale telepresence). A further emphasis in the previous and current fourth phase (2008-2010) lies in the Haptic-Visual-Auditory work space (HVA work space) which in particular focuses on multiple-operator-multiple-teleoperator systems.
Programme duration: 1999 - 2010
Coordinator: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Martin Buss
Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology

  Facultative Microbial Pathogenesis and Innate Immunity (SFB 576)
The aims and future directions of research in the SFB 576 include the recognition of microbial structures by Toll-like receptors, the specificity of Toll-like receptor signals in the regulation of innate and adaptive immune responses, the roles of phagocytes and dendritic cells as regulatory cells inducing inflammatory reactions and linking innate and adaptive immunity, and the mechanisms by which facultative pathogenic microorganisms counteract innate host defense.
Program duration: 1999 - 2010
Coordinator: Prof. Dr. Bernhard Holzmann
Department of Medicine

  Solid State Based Quantum Information Processing (SFB 631)
The Collaborative Research Center 631 studies the physical concepts, materials aspects, and technological foundations of solid-state quantum information processing (SQIP). This interdisciplinary research field has the potential to revolutionize many areas of science and technology. It deals with the coherent dynamics of solid-state quantum systems and has the daring vision to be able to process and communicate information on the basis of quantum mechanical principles.
Programme duration: since 2003
Coordinator: Prof. Dr. Rudolf Gross
Department of Physics, Walter Schottky Institute

  Managing cycles in innovation processes - Integrated development of product service systems based on technical products (SFB 768)
Focus of the research is the implementation and use of elements of complex solutions, nowadays typically consisting of a combination of product- and service-components, so-called product-service-systems. The components are subject to development-, manufacturing-, and life-cycles of varying length which are provided by different functional divisions. Availability and maturity of technologies, changes of competences, financial cycles at capital markets or of investments and write-offs as well as changes of customer demands represent external influences on the company.
Programme duration: since 2008
Coordinator: Prof. Dr. Udo Lindemann
Department of Mechanical Engineering

  Imaging for Selection, Monitoring and Individualization of Cancer Therapies (SFB 824)
The individualization of cancer treatment using imaging methods is the long term goal of this SFB initiative. The SFB 824 aims at advancing instrumentation and methodology of molecular, multimodal imaging for the in-vivo monitoring of cancer therapy. This research project is supported by the anticipation that a combination of non-invasive imaging and in-vitro analysis of tissue samples derived from biopsies and serum material will allow profiling individual tumour biology and relating the results to the therapy response pattern.
Programm duration: since 2009
Coordinator: Prof. Dr. Markus Schwaiger
Department of Medicine

  Molecular mechanisms regulating yield and yield stability in plants (SFB 924)
Programme duration: since 2011
Coordinator: Prof. Dr. Claus Schwechheimer
Department of Plant Systems Biology, Weihenstephan Science Center for Nutrition, Land Use and the Environment

Transregional Collaborative Research Centres (TUM)

(under TUMs coordination)

  Technological foundations for the design of thermally and mechanically highly loaded components of future space transportation systems (TR 40)
Next-generation space transportation systems will be based on rocket propulsion systems which deliver the best compromise between development and production cost and performance. The SFB-TR40 focuses on liquid rocket propulsion systems and their integration into the space transportation system. Atmospheric re-entry of re-usabel space transportation systems will not be investigated in this project. Instead, specific problems of rocket propulsion systems are the main focus of the SFB-TR40.
Programme duration: since 2008
Coordinator: Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Adams
Department of Mechanical Engineering
