The Federal Ministry of Education and Research, or BMBF for short, is providing funding for basic research in the area of universe and matter with its new program “Exploration of the Universe and Matter”, ErUM for short.
Work on particles, matter, and the universe is intended to lay the foundations for the technologies of tomorrow and beyond.
The “ErUM-FSP T03 – Expansion of CMS at the LHC: Elementary Particle Physics With the CMS Experiment” project has now been approved. This coordinates the current CMS projects at RWTH, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Universität Hamburg, the University of Münster, and the DESY research center. The BMBF is providing the current CMS projects at RWTH with funding of more than ten million euros in total.
