On 27 September 2018, the Excellence Commission announced the decision on the newly funded clusters within the framework of the Excellence Strategy. The Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden (cfaed) is a research cluster that has already been funded for one funding period within the previous Excellence Initiative and it looks back on many scientific successes from 2012-2018. cfaed has also played a decisive role in strengthening the attractiveness of the location for the local electronics industry and for new developments. With a newly adjusted research program, cfaed planned to build on these results in a second funding period and to follow up on many of the first successes, to lead to further breakthroughs and to link up with the newly added research fields of the program.
With disappointment, the Executive Board and members of cfaed received the news that cfaed will not be funded in future within the framework of the Excellence Strategy of the German Federal and State Governments. An evaluation of the reasons behind will take some time. The speaker of the cluster, Prof. Gerhard Fettweis of the Vodafone Chair for Mobile Communications Systems at TU Dresden, left no doubt about the efficiency and team spirit of the cfaed members. In a message to all participants, he expressed his appreciation and his thanks for the work of the past years and during the proposal phase for the second funding period. "I would also like to thank all those outside the cluster who have always believed in us and supported us, be it the administration and management of TU Dresden, the city of Dresden, the local industry or the politics and politicians of the Free State of Saxony," said Prof. Gerhard Fettweis.
cfaed congratulates TU Dresden on the great achievement of having been successful with 3 of its 6 proposals. We would also like to pay the greatest respect to the winning clusters and congratulate them on their great success. All of Dresden's cluster applications, including those that were not successful, have demonstrated the great expertise they have in their respective fields. Much of the energy will certainly be carried on and flow into new scientific projects.

Together with the CRTD and other partners, cfaed is co-organiser of a conference aimed at female junior researchers and junior research group leaders from selected DFG-coordinated programmes at the TU Dresden. The three-day conference taking place in the INNSIDE Hotel close to the Frauenkirche offers numerous workshops (parallel workshops in English) and coaching opportunities. During fireplace talks with experienced female professors (rolemodels), the participants will be able to get into a conversation with them on pathways in research.

That was over way too fast: Last Friday, the 2018 cfaed Summer School Dresden Microelectronics Academy concluded with three talks and a wrap up by the chairs, Prof. Bartha and Prof. Mannsfeld. For five days, together with Globalfoundries, X-Fab, and Infineon cfaed once again presented Dresden’s synergetic semiconductor research and industry communities. We welcomed over 20 students and scientists from 14 nations in Dresden to the 17th edition of the prestigious academy. The DMA attracts participants who are fascinated by the latest innovations in the semiconductor industry and want to gain practical first-hand and expert knowledge. Top lecturers familiarized them with the fascinating world of semiconductors. Guided tours with industry professionals offered a deep insight into some of the most compelling work environments for leading engineers.

Wie wird sich Arbeit in der Zukunft verändern? Welche neuen Berufe werden entstehen? Wie lässt sich Einkommen gerecht verteilen und welchen Einfluss haben Roboter auf unsere Arbeit? Diesen Fragen sind Kinder und Jugendliche aus fünf Schulen in und um Dresden in Kunst- und Wissenschaftsworkshops nachgegangen. Die von ihnen erarbeiteten Forschungsergebnisse und Visionen sind in Form von Videoinstallationen, Skulpturen oder Performances in das Projekt „Der Visiomat – ein künstlerisches Forschungsarchiv zu den Arbeitswelten der Zukunft“ eingeflossen.
Heute wurde die interaktive, mobile Containerausstellung auf dem Gelände des tjg. theater junge generation eröffnet. Das als Kooperation des cfaed - Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden an der TU Dresden und des tjg. theater junge generation entstandene Projekt ist Teil des Wissenschaftsjahres 2018 und kann von Mitte September bis Ende Oktober 2018 an drei Standorten in Dresden besichtigt werden.
