Research Training Group Embedded Microsystems – GRK 1103
Embedded microsystems are created using a combination of sensors, microelectronics, and computer science. This makes it possible to integrate intelligent and communication-enabled units into everyday objects that are so small they are virtually invisible. Embedded microsystems can be found in medical diagnostics, the control systems of motorized vehicles, and in safety engineering.
The research training group Embedded Microsystems offers postgraduate scholarships to 20 young researchers who are passionate about a field of research that is currently important in science and relevant to industry. The research training group combines the fields of computer science and microsystems engineering. Routine workshops stimulate continuous interdisciplinary exchange and bring people together, providing future graduates with an academic profile that is unique in all of Germany.
The German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG) will support the research training group with over €4 million until 2014. The group also receives financial support from several local companies, such as SICK AG from Waldkirch, Endress+Hauser from Weil am Rhein, Micronas AG from Freiburg, and HSGIMIT from Villingen-Schwenningen.
