With the appointment of four new professors, the Faculty’s team has become younger. The extension of CRC 1242, the establishment of the new CRC/TRR 270 and many successful individual funding applications have given the Faculty access to significant third-party resources in addition to the funding provided by the University. These granted funds verify the excellent scientific output of the Faculty and provide highly favourable conditions for resuming regular scientific work after the lockdowns – for discussing, calculating, measuring, discarding, discussing again, writing and publishing together with several hundred highly motivated students.
