A university of innovative thinking.

How could a university in scenic northern Bavaria become a powerhouse capable of attracting gifted students and first class researchers?

There is no one right answer to this question. Factors include the strength of the subject areas taught by our faculties and of our focus areas: our strategically chosen interdisciplinary research priorities. These focus areas provide a means of bundling the university’s interdisciplinary expertise, creating synergies with enormous innovative potential. Institutes active in the focus areas include the Bavarian Research Institute of Experimental Geochemistry & Geophysics, known worldwide for its excellence, the internationally renowned Institute of African Studies, and the Bayreuth Centre for Colloids & Interfaces, a motor of innovation for materials of the future.

Finally, there is our compact campus, the heart of the university and a source of inspiration. It is here that friendships are made, collaboration is initiated, and ideas are conceived, ensuring that our university remains a beacon of innovation. If you need space to let your ideas unfold, look no further.
