The Cluster of Excellence „Data-Integrated Simulation Science” at the University of Stuttgart has been in existence since 1st January 2019. It is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) within the framework of the German excellence strategy until 2026. In our Cluster, which is by the way one of two Clusters of Excellence at the University of Stuttgart, around 150 people from seven faculties of the University work together in interdisciplinary research teams. At the same time, we also take care of the next generation of young scientists within our study program Simulation Technology, our competition PlaNeT SimTech and our graduate school GS SimTech.

What do we do?

Our work focuses on the integration of simulation and data science. This means that we use the ever-increasing amount of data from various sources for our simulations from the very beginning in order to improve their accuracy. This enables us to make our models more reliable and thus make predictions that are more accurate. Scientific fundamentals are always taken into account. The knowledge gained in this way can be used in almost all areas: simulation of the musculoskeletal system, development of prostheses, development of materials, effects of geothermal drilling, development of patient-specific drugs – to name only a few.

For this purpose, the exchange and cooperation with other national and international research institutions and industry are very important.
