We are happy that Nature notes: „One goal of the Excellence Initiative is to create research clusters that integrate university laboratories more closely with local non-university institutes such as Max Planck and Helmholtz centres. The clusters are also intended to form a conduit between academia and business, a sector which funds and conducts two-thirds of German R&D. The Centre for Integrated Protein Science Munich, created in 2006 as one of the first Excellence clusters, now features regularly in the NPI and is a prime example of how this strategy is changing the institutional status quo of German science.“
