The University of Hannover Has a New Name: Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Universität Hannover.
The objective of changing the name 'University of Hannover' to 'Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Universität Hannover' (Leibniz Universität Hannover for short) is to give all of the university's faculties a home under the umbrella of the universal scholar, promoting interaction within and between them.
In 2007, the university introduced its new Mission Statement in which the university's profile, with special reference to Leibniz, is enshrined. A new logo and a comprehensive corporate design were also created.
