About University of Hannover:

Shaping the Future with Knowledge – as one of the nine leading Institutes of Technology in Germany, Leibniz University is aware of its responsibility in seeking sustainable, peaceful and responsible solutions to the key issues of tomorrow. Our expertise for this stems from the broad spectrum of subjects, ranging from engineering and natural sciences to architecture and environmental planning, from law and economics to social sciences and humanities. At Leibniz University there are currently almost 29,000 students studying in nine faculties, and some 3,100 researchers working in more than 180 institutes. The main building of the university is the Royal Palace Welfenschloss at the Welfengarten. Our internationally visible core research topics are in mechanical engineering, in quantum optics and gravitational physics, in biomedical research and in teacher training. The broad range of subjects at Leibniz University is entirely compatible with an overall university strategy of raising its profile, in particular of teaching and research, including the establishment and enhancement of research priority areas originating in the humanities and social sciences. Cooperation agreements with national and international partners strengthen our scientific expertise – our most important partner is Hannover Medical School (MHH). By adopting the name of the polymath Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz in 2006, the university committed itself to unity in its diversity.
