On August 9, 2022, the Minister for Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, Ina Brandes, visited the University of Bonn to learn about the development of the Excellence Strategy. During her visit, she explored the Poppelsdorf campus together with Rector Michael Hoch and gained insights into the areas of research, teaching and transfer as well as about PhenoRob and the other five Clusters of Excellence at the University of Bonn. At the end of her visit, Brandes praised the achievements of the Cluster, also with regard to PhenoRob’s goal to ensure food security due to sustainable, technological applications: “As the most successful university nationwide in the Excellence Strategy, the University of Bonn is a leading location for cutting-edge research – far beyond North Rhine-Westphalia. Outstanding scientists conduct research here on the major issues of our time – such as the energy crisis, Corona and the world food situation. Their results are groundbreaking.”
