Leibniz Universität Hannover is continually expanding its strategic cooperation agreements with nationally and internationally leading non-university research institutions. Selected institutions with which Leibniz Universität maintains close research cooperation agreements, especially in the form of bridge professorships, are listed here:


COOPERATION AGREEMENTS WITH THE MAX PLANCK SOCIETY

Together with the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute), Leibniz Universität runs the gravitational wave detector GEO600 and the International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Gravitational Wave Astronomy. The Hannover Institute of Technology (HITec) currently under construction at Leibniz Universität will provide a further cross-thematic research infrastructure to be used jointly by researchers from the university and the Max Planck Institute.


COOPERATION AGREEMENTS WITH THE HELMHOLTZ ASSOCIATION

The Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI)

In the area of biomedical research, Leibniz Universität cooperates particularly closely with the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI), among others via the university’s Centre of Biomolecular Drug Research (BMWZ) and various cooperation projects between individual institutes and HZI.

Helmholtz Zentrum München - German Research Center for Environmental Health (HMGU)

In the area of medicinal chemistry and drug research, Leibniz Universität also cooperates in research, education and teaching with Helmholtz Zentrum München - German Research Center for Environmental Health (HMGU).


COOPERATION AGREEMENTS WITH FRAUNHOFER-GESELLSCHAFT

Fraunhofer Institute for Toxicology and Experimental Medicine (ITEM)

Leibniz Universität and the Fraunhofer Institute for Toxicology and Experimental Medicine (ITEM) collaborate especially in the field of biomedical research. Within the Translation Alliance in Lower Saxony (TRAIN) they and other university and non-university research institutions concentrate their expertise and infrastructures to speed the process of transferring potential active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and vaccines from the laboratory to the patient.

Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy and Energy System Technology (IWES)

Joint activities in wind energy research characterise the collaboration between Leibniz Universität and the Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy and Energy System Technology (IWES). As part of the cooperation agreement between both institutions, the Test Centre for Support Structures was set up at Leibniz Universität. Furthermore, both cooperate within ForWind, the joint Centre for Wind Energy Research of the Universities of Hannover, Oldenburg and Bremen, and in the Research Association Wind Energy.


COOPERATION AGREEMENTS WITH THE LEIBNIZ ASSOCIATION

Technische Informationsbibliothek (TIB)

The Technische Informationsbibliothek (TIB) ‒ Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology, and the University Library is a public-law foundation of the Federal State of Lower Saxony, and a member of the Leibniz Association. In its function as the university library, TIB provides specialist literature for Leibniz Universität Hannover, serving also all the humanities and social science subjects locally. It is closely connected to Leibniz Universität, both structurally and on a staffing level.

Academy for Spatial Research and Planning (ARL)

Academy for Spatial Research and Planning (ARL), Leibniz Forum for Spatial Sciences, is a forum and skills centre for research in the field of spatial research and development, their causes and effects, and political and planning control options. Leibniz Universität Hannover cooperates closely with ARL, in research, teaching and promoting young researchers, in particular via the Research Centre TRUST (Transdisciplinary Rural and Urban Spatial Transformation).


COOPERATION AGREEMENTS WITH FURTHER NON-UNIVERSITY RESEARCH INSTITUTIONS

Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB)

Leibniz Universität has for many years been a close research cooperation partner of the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt in Braunschweig. Under the auspices of the Cluster of Excellence QUEST, several DFG joint research projects and in the research building HITec, scientists from PTB and Leibniz Universität work at the top international level to advance developments in the area of precise metrology.

German Centre for Higher Education Research and Science Studies (DZHW)

Leibniz Universität has cooperated with the DZHW and its predecessor, the Institut für Hochschulforschung der HIS GmbH, since 2006. In the Leibniz Centre for Science and Society, the research activities of the participating researchers also strengthen the university’s core research area “Interdisciplinary Studies of Science and Academia” through joint positions, lectures and research projects, and a research cooperation agreement.

German Institute of Rubber Technology (DIK)

The German Institute of Rubber Technology (DIK) is an independent research institution cooperating closely with Leibniz Universität Hannover and with industry. DIK and Leibniz Universität have been closely linked for many years through research projects, and on the structural and staffing level. In cooperation with the Wirtschaftsverband der deutschen Kautschukindustrie (WDK) and Leibniz Universität Hannover, a continuing education and training course of studies in rubber technology has run successfully since 1985.


AN-INSTITUTES - AFFILIATED INSTITUTES

In addition, cooperation with the affiliated institutes of the university plays a significant role as they complement the university’s competences by conducting applied research in important areas. The following facilities are institutes affiliated with Leibniz Universität Hannover:
