We profile our multidisciplinary and international research through six thematic collaborations. These interdisciplinary thematic collaborations are based on long-term basic research in our traditionally strong areas of research and enable initiatives that combine expertise in different fields.

We are a multidisciplinary University with an excellent environment for ground-breaking interdisciplinary research and making the results available for the benefit of society – for building a bright and broad-minded future.
