Strong in Research
We create scope for excellent science, transfer and promotion of young researchers: In five profile focal points and a wide variety of other research focal points.
We create many perspectives because we embrace educational equity as a task and offer space for heterogeneous potentials and different study strategies.
We promote potential, realize equal opportunities and use the innovative power of diversity management for research and teaching.
