With its long-term investment in building its profile, JLU was successful in both rounds of the federal and state excellence initiative; since 2006, the International Graduate Centre for the Study of Culture (GCSC) and the Excellence Cluster Cardiopulmonary System (ECCPS; joint partner university: Goethe University Frankfurt) have been funded with Excellence Initiatives I and II. After this funding ends from the Excellence Initiative in 2019, the GCSC will be permanently funded from the university's internal budget. In this manner, the GCSC will have an important pacesetter function in funding early career researchers.
