 The Hausdorff Center for Mathematics

The Hausdorff Center for Mathematics (HCM), was established 2006 a Cluster of Excellence at the University of Bonn under the title "Mathematics: Foundations, Models, Applications" within the Excellence Initiative by the German federal and state governments. Based upon six units, the Cluster ranges from pure and applied mathematics to mathematically orientated research in economics as well as interdisciplinary research. Identifying and addressing mathematical challenges of the 21st century is one of the key goals of the HCM, along with the promotion of earlycareer researchers in an independent and international environment. It has since been successfully renewed twice, in 2012 and most recently in 2018, for an additional seven years.
