In December 2018, there was the inspection of Technical University of Munich (TUM) premises for a substantial award based on excellence criteria initiative. A federal and state-level inspection to designate the “University of Excellence” status has been ongoing annually in Germany since 2006.

To showcase TUM’s research portfolio this year, a STARSTEM exhibit was prepared where their role within the project and multispectral optoacoustic tomography (MSOT) were highlighted.

It was announced on 17 July 2019, that TUM received the award of “University of Excellence” yet again, for the third time! With prize money of 105 million euros for the 2019 – 2026 period, the University’s TUM Agenda 2030 can now be implemented.

Congratulations to the STARSTEM team for their contributions to this award and to TUM more generally.
