Title: Topologically gauged 3d CFTs and their connection to Schroedinger and other geometries


I will first review the construction of topologically gauged CFTs in 3d and then  discuss some  properties of the various solutions that arise in these theories. Breaking the conformal symmetries lead to AdS, Schroedinger as well as  other kinds of less studied geometries. Some special features, e.g. a novel Higgs effect, appearing for the first time  in this context will be discussed in more detail.
