On September 1, 2021, the first episode of the podcast of Germany’s Clusters of Excellence was released: “Exzellent erklärt (excellenty explained) – cutting-edge research for all”. The podcast on current scientific topics reflects the research diversity of the Clusters of Excellence: from African studies to quantum physics. In each episode, listeners can expect insights into the interdisciplinary work of a research network. The scientists talk to podcaster Larissa Vassilian about how they want to find scientifically sound answers to societally relevant topics.

Ten science communicators from various clusters worked together for several months to develop the concept for the new podcast series. “We want to make cutting-edge research visible and tangible for everyone,” explains Doreen Böttcher, responsible for public relations at the Cluster of Excellence “Centre for Tactile Internet with Human-in-the-Loop” (CeTI) at the Technische Universität Dresden (TUD) and a member of the project team for the new science podcast. The project team’s common goal: to inform a broad public about the topics and working methods of the research it funds.

Listen to the first episode on Tactile Internet on the podcast website and all popular portals.

Further episodes of the podcast series have already been produced and will be release on a monthly basis. ML4Q is also participating and the release of the episode is scheduled for 2022.
