A Strategic Alliance

CoTeSys combines the research competence in neuroscience, natural sciences, mathematics, engineering, computer science, and humanities


The Cluster of Excellence Cognition for Technical Systems – CoTeSys, coordinated by Technische Universität München, is a close collaboration between scientists from various disciplines connecting neurocognitive and neuro-biological foundations to engineering sciences at leading research institutions in Munich: besides Technische Universität München, scientists from Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Universität der Bundeswehr, Max-Planck Institute of Neurobiology and German Aerospace Agency DLR are involved.

This community provides a unique combination of expertise to integrate cognitive capabilities and methods of cognitive control into technical systems acting and re-acting in an unpredictable physical world.
