TNC Elevator Pitches #2 (5th of November 2019)

from: 2019, 05 Nov - 00:00 to: 2019, 05 Nov - 00:00

After the University of Tübingen had retained its excellence status in July 2019 and had been

granted funding until 2026, the idea of a new Excellence Cluster Application in the

Neurosciences in the next round became more concrete.

We therefore decided to start a new TNC format in October, the “TNC Elevator Pitches”.

We wanted to give PIs the opportunity to pitch in 3 to 5 minutes their ideas for innovative

project ideas, novel technologies, or other interesting research areas, which could lead not

only to an excellence cluster application for 2026, but also to collaborative research centers

(SFBs), graduate schools, research groups etc. in the next few years.

Furthermore, these meetings provided an opportunity to foster exchange between the

research group leaders in the various fields of neuroscience.

The three events took place on October 8th, November 5th and December 3rd – each time with

5 to 8 pitches with PIs from the NMI in Reutlingen, the University Department of Psychiatry &

Psychotherapy, the Tübingen University, the CIN, the Institute of Neuroanatomy & Developmental

Biology, the University Children’s Hospital, the Tübingen Hearing Research Center, the

Department of Radiology, the HIH, and many more.
