Nine Nobel Prizes have been awarded to researchers at the University. Driven by intellectual creativity and critical thinking since 1479, researchers and students at the University of Copenhagen have expanded horizons and contributed to moving the world forward. With its 5,000 researchers and 39,000 students, the University boasts an international research and study environment. The University offers researchers and students the opportunity to develop their talent and launches ambitious interdisciplinary initiatives to support its strong academic communities. Through research-based teaching – and by involving them in research – students are equipped to address society's challenges and needs. The University is working towards becoming one of the world’s greenest campus areas, leaving as little environmental and climate footprint as possible. The University also focuses on gender equality and sees diversity as a strength. The University of Copenhagen is a member of two international alliances of high-ranking universities: the International Alliance of Research Universities (IARU) and the League of European Research Universities (LERU).
