The fast track to research

What is happening in Hessen’s cutting-edge research? What issues are the researchers tackling and what do they want to achieve? The research initiatives supported by the federal state of Hessen and its LOEWE excellence initiative have come together to form ProLOEWE. Their aim is to present joint information about their activities and provide ready access to their research.

ProLOEWE unites LOEWE research Centres and LOEWE research Clusters with more than 1,400 Researchers in 2018. Their work is made possible through LOEWE, Hessen’s excellence programme – and hence by the general public. The subjects addressed range from medical research, innovative applied technologies and fundamental research in the natural sciences to cultural and social issues. Research is team work, often reaching beyond the borders of subject disciplines and individual institutions. Through ProLOEWE, the research initiatives are seeking to enhance their cooperation.

Those in charge of the research initiatives form the ProLOEWE Board of Directors. Since November 2022 the Board is represented by Professor Dr Anke Becker, Coordinator of the LOEWE research Cluster Tree-M. Her deputy is Professor Dr Moritz Bünemann, Coordinator of the LOEWE research Cluster GLUE. ProLOEWE is administered by University of Kassel.
