Central research institutes
The central research institutes of the University of Bayreuth are used to sustainably strengthen the University's focus areas. They are intended to create good research conditions through networking, enable synergies and lead to internal optimisation and consolidation.
As a rule, interdisciplinary researchers from several faculties work together in the central research institutes. They define the goals to be achieved and orient their work towards these. The University of Bayreuth promotes the development of its research centres and helps them to fulfil their tasks.
This also involves the procurement and operation of large-scale equipment, and the provision of central infrastructure for joint research. Interdisciplinary research applications, e.g. for the establishment of Collaborative Research Centres, Research Units, and other research associations, are coordinated and supported via the institutions.
