Research InfrastructureCellnetworks Core Technology Platform (CCTP)

The Field of Focus 1 Research Council supports the development of technological facilities (Core Facilities) through financing and advisory service.

The Cluster of Excellence CellNetworks was instrumental in fostering the infrastructure of the Heidelberg Life Science Campus and now serves as an umbrella organisation for the Core Facilities, the CellNetworks Core Technology Platform (CCTP).

Major aims are to provide easy access for members of all partners, transparent terms of use and the development of a balanced User Fee System. CCTP-associated Core Facilities must fulfil certain requirements. 

Junior scientists in particular should have easy access to the latest technology without any bureaucratic obstacles. The Core Facilities offer support to their users on three different levels:

  • Service
  • Support by experienced staff
  • Allocation of equipment
