Research Associations within the University
Our wide variety of subjects enables our researchers and academics to consider diverse aspects when working on complex, cross-disciplinary questions. In order to support interdisciplinary associations in competitive core areas, Leibniz Universität Hannover has its own internal cross-faculty organisational structure.
The system is divided into the interdisciplinary Leibniz Research Initiatives, Leibniz Research Centres and Leibniz Research Schools, where researchers work on core areas across the disciplines and faculties. This system is progressive and, according the stage of development of the interdisciplinary research association in question, offers different types of support and institutionalisation from the university management.
