About ProLOEWE

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 brings together 7 LOEWE research centres and 17 LOEWE research clusters with more than 1,800 researchers. 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. The Board is represented by Prof. Dr. Arno Ehresmann, Coordinator of the LOEWE research cluster ELCH and Vice President at the University of Kassel. His deputy is Prof. Dr. Dr. h. c. Volker Mosbrugger, Scientific Coordinator of the BiK-F LOEWE research centre and General Director of the Senckenberg Nature Research Society in Frankfurt. ProLOEWE is administered by the Senckenberg Nature Research Society in Frankfurt am Main.
