The University of Bayreuth’s research centres strengthen the focus areas at the University. Within the research centres, scientists from different faculties come together to pursue interdisciplinary research.
The research centres furnish and operate large equipment and provide a central infrastructure. By actively supporting the establishment and coordination of interdisciplinary research associations, they also play an important role in obtaining external funding.
