University of Excellence

The University directorate, the Göttingen Campus Council and members of the University and partner institutions on the Göttingen Campus meet regularly to discuss strategic planning designed to ensure the best possible conditions for research and teaching – independent of funding in the context of the Excellence Initiative or Excellence Strategy. The results of these consultations are set out in the 2012 "Standortkonzept" and in "Positions and Perspectives 2014-2024", for example.

Since the University won support for only one Excellence cluster, it cannot proceed to the application stage for the “Universities of Excellence” process.

The University leadership is determined to further promote the outstanding research achievements at the University and on the Göttingen Campus and to continue to develop teaching at a high level.

Activities in the region will also be pursued with great commitment.
