Profile of Leibniz University Hannover

The spirit of Leibniz – as one of the nine leading Institutes of Technology in Germany, Leibniz University is aware of its responsibility in seeking sustainable, peaceful and responsible solutions to the key issues of tomorrow. Our expertise for this stems from the broad spectrum of subjects, ranging from engineering and natural sciences to architecture and environmental planning, from law and economics to social sciences and humanities.

Diverse and Cultivated

Leibniz University Hannover is diverse and cultivated – just like our namesake, the polymath Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz.

The broad range of subjects at Leibniz University is entirely compatible with an overall university strategy of raising its profile, in particular of teaching and research, including the establishment and enhancement of research priority areas originating in the humanities and social sciences.

Cooperation agreements with national and international partners strengthen our scientific expertise.

By adopting the name of the polymath Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz in 2006, the university committed itself to unity in its diversity.

Internationalisation is on the Agenda
