We are a Cluster of Excellence – Centre for Tactile Internet with Human-in-the-Loop (CeTI)!
In the summer of 2016, the German Federal and State governments agreed a follow-up programme to the Excellence Initiative – namely the “Excellence Strategy” – which aims to promote top-level research and outstanding achievements of German universities.
Our CeTI proposal was approved based on the assessment of a panel comprising international experts from different countries. We are very happy and honoured that our proposal, which had been prepared for more than one year, has been selected for the Excellence Initiative.
