Network

With the Hertie Network of Excellence in Clinical Neuroscience and its career programme, the Hertie Academy of Clinical Neuroscience, the Hertie Foundation initiated a network and junior researcher support programme for clinical neurosciences. Six selected excellent research sites are initially supported for three years.

The five million euros provided in the first funding period mainly support the Hertie Academy of Clinical Neuroscience, which will bring together four excellent young scientists per location. The Hertie Academy provides key qualifications for the next career steps and promotes the scientific networking of excellent young researchers, for example through joint projects. The aim is to enable these talents to take up central management positions in the coming years.

Hamburg

The University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE) constitutes the medical faculty of the University of Hamburg, which recently gained the status of an Excellence University in 2019. With 506,697 patients, 11,348 employees and 3,338 students, the UKE is the second largest University Medical Center in Germany.

Since 2006, the amount of research funding has increased from approx. 30 million EUR to nearly 100 million EUR in 2018, including four Collaborative Research Centers and several transregional and European large-scale projects.

Neuroscience is one of the main research focus areas at the UKE.
