The Göttingen Campus is a cooperative alliance between the University, local non-university research institutions and business associates that together profit from steadily expanding collaborations.
Göttingen's on-site partners form an exceptionally vital cooperative alliance in research and teaching. These include joint Collaborative Research Centres (CRC), Research Training Groups, joint professorial appointments and jointly run facilities. More recently, the University has adopted the policy of creating joint research centres with major funding from third-party grants.
Dedicated to the promotion of independent young scientists who are embedded in both local and international networks, the international Master/Ph.D. programmes in Molecular Biology and Neurosciences are part of the Max Planck Research Schools and serve as blueprints for the development of the University's Graduate Schools. On the whole, the University’s key research areas have been developed in close cooperation with our partner research institutions and together form the basis for the University’s profile today.
