Basis for the preparation of this Declaration on Accessibility is a a self-assessment carried out by TU Dresden.



Status of compatibility with the requirements of the Federal Ordinance on Accessible Information Technology (BITV)

Use one of the four variants depending on the status.

Due to the following incompatibilities and/or exceptions, this website is partially compatible with the requirements of the BfWebG in accordance with BITV 2.0.



Non-accessible content

  • Some coloured areas with text do not meet the required contrast values (e.g. the tiles of the "Research Areas" (SPIN, FUNCTIONALITY, PHOTON).
  • The main navigation of the site is not fully accessible, only the upper level can be accessed here. The filter function under "news" and "events" is also not fully accessible.
  • Sometimes image links (logos) are displayed as empty links (not screen reader compatible).
  • No audio description is offered for embedded videos.


We have a very elaborate and multifaceted web site with a large number of documents. We are trying to reduce the barriers, but due to restricted resources in the project operation we are currently not able to provide a fully accessible website.


Please contact us by phone or e-mail if you do not have barrier-free access to the content. We will then endeavour to provide you with the desired information.




If you notice any shortcomings in terms of accessible design, please contact the public relations officer of the Cluster: Katja Lesser,, +49 351 463 33496.
