We received today, Sep 29th, 2017, the amazing news that the application for the excellence cluster “Science of Intelligence” (SCIoI), where Pawel Romanczuk is one of the designated PIs, succeeded in the first round of the excellence initiative of the German federal and state governments. From 195 initial applications, 88 were selected and are invited to submit a full proposal. For the SCIoI-team this great news means now a lot of work in the coming months preparing the full proposal. But with the past experience of the productive atmosphere and the inspiring, truly interdisciplinary, scientific discussions during our SCoI meetings, we are all excited and highly motivated to work together even more intensely to submit the best possible application for the second round.
