Universality, interdisciplinary skills and an international character are our strengths on the path towards outstanding research performance. More than 300 professors and over 2,600 non-professorial academics in 208 institutes investigate questions in science and engineering, humanities and social sciences, and interdisciplinary issues, thus laying the foundations for tackling today's social challenges. By pooling outstanding individual achievements across the disciplines we are able to draw international attention to our excellent research.
Leibniz Universität Hannover is among the world's leading institutions in its key research areas "Quantum Optics and Gravitational Physics", "Production Engineering", "Biomedical Research and Engineering", and "Interdisciplinary Studies of Science and Academia". Our innovative strength in developing precision measurement methods, optical technologies, novel materials, intelligent implants and innovations in Information Technology or in the field of Industry 4.0 stems from these.
