Freie Universität Berlin Announces Teaching Award 2014
As part of the university's concept for research-oriented teaching in the context of its development strategy, Freie Universität Berlin is calling for proposals for the new Teaching Award 2014. The award aims to support outstanding teaching projects that integrate interdisciplinary top-level research into university teaching. The call for proposals is addressed to teaching projects with a focus on regional partnerships.
The quarterly International Newsletter informs about cutting-edge research projects, outstanding scholars and scientists, programs, and services for international guests as well as other news at Freie Universität in Berlin.

Freie Universität Berlin was selected as a university of excellence in the German government’s national Excellence Initiative in 2007. During the second funding round, in June 2012 Freie Universität was again selected as a university of excellence, making it one of six universities in Germany to have gained this seal of approval in both rounds. The award is connected with extensive grant money through 2017. Overall Freie Universität will receive roughly 121 million euros over the next five years to implement its institutional development strategy as well as to set up or continue to operate three clusters of excellence and seven graduate schools where the university is either the host university or one of the involved partners.
Good Prospects for Early-Career Researchers
Graduate schools with their structured doctoral programs provide young researchers with an outstanding research environment and facilitate early integration into the academic community.
Freie Universität Berlin participates in four clusters of excellence, where cutting-edge research topics are investigated in interdisciplinary groups together with partners in the Berlin-Brandenburg region.
