13 13 TU Dresden: Funded Projects st Funding Line: GRADUATE SCHOOL 2nd Funding Line: CLUSTERS OF EXCELLENCE 3rd Funding Line: INSTITUTIONAL STRATEGY  Dresden International Graduate School for Biomedicine and Bioengineering  Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden  “The Synergetic University“  Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden

14 14 The institutional strategy of TU Dresden: The Synergetic University Recruiting and supporting "top talents" on all steps of the career ladder Restructuring the 14 faculties under the roof of five schools in order to foster integrative and effective structures and processes Decentralization and optimization of administration and support processes Developing this unique alliance of the TUD together with strong non-university partners of research and culture in Dresden

15 15 The Synergetic University: TUD People Exemplary Measures  appointing unique Open Topic Tenure Track Professorships  establishing a Graduate Academy  initiating the DRESDEN Fellowship Programme  help initiating new research projects and applying for funds by support of the new Project Scouts  supporting the best researchers at TUD through a special funding pool

16 16 The Synergetic University: TUD Structures core measure: reorganizing the 14 Faculties into 5 Schools: School of Civil and Environmental Engineering School of Humanities and Social Sciences School of Science School of Medicine  Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering  Faculty of Computer Science  Faculty of Mechanical Engineering  Education  Faculty of Law  Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences  Linguistics, Literature and Cultural Studies  Business and Economics  Faculty of Science comprising the departments Biology Chemistry and Food Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics and Psychology School of Engineering Sciences  Architecture  Civil Engineering  Environmental Sciences  Transportation and Traffic Science

17 17 The Synergetic University: TUD Processes core measure: TUDo Programme („TUD optimieren“)  maximising the efficiency of central and decentralised administrative processes with optimum integrated IT support  restructuring the Central Administration and establishing decentralised administrative units in the 5 Schools  developing and constantly extending a service-oriented organizational culture

18 18 The Synergetic University: DRESDEN-concept further developing the research alliance of TUD and 22 non-university research and cultural institutions in the Dresden area  synergies in research, recruitment, education and infrastructure new services as part of “The Synergetic University”:  Dual Career Service  Welcome Center  Technology Platform

19 19 The Synergetic University: Internationalisation Objectives:  raise the number of international students and academics at all qualification levels  set up an international environment for teaching and research  improve the visibility and reputation of TU Dresden abroad Measures:  intensifying or reestablishing strategic international partnerships  annual International Summer Schools

20 20 The Synergetic University: Equality Measures to add to existing equal opportunities activities:  “Eleonore Trefftz” Programme for Visiting Women Professors  Research Project “Gendered University”

21 21 Dresden International Graduate School for Biomedicine and Bioengineering Cell and Developmental Biology (CellDevo track) Regenerative Medicine (RegMed track) Biophysics and Bioengineering (BioPhysEng track) Computational Biology (CompBio track)  4 research areas  250 junior scientists in more than 80 research groups  More than 1,000 applications per year  Participating institutions: TUD Universitätsklinikum Max-Planck-Institute Leibniz-Institut Helmholtz-Zentrum

22 22 Hematology/Immunology Diabetes Neurodegenerative Diseases Bone Regeneration Technology Platforms Cluster of Excellence Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden  founded in 2006 as research center of the German Research Association (DFG)  250 employees in the core institute  80 members from research institutions in Dresden  support network of 21 companies

23 23 Cluster of Excellence Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden Exploration of new materials and technologies for electronic information processing which overcome the limits of today's predominant CMOS technology  9 research paths  300 scientists from more than 20 countries  11 participating institutions
