Excellence Initiative of the Federal and State Governments
Leipzig University is one of the 35 universities throughout Germany that were successful in the first programme phase of the Excellence Initiative. The graduate school "Leipzig School of Natural Sciences - Building with Molecules and Nano-objects (BuildMoNa)" has emerged as one of the leading research and training institutions in the field of the development of new, intelligent materials. The successful school will file a renewal proposal.
The established Leipzig Research Forum for coordinating and facilitating the cooperation between the University and the numerous non-university research institutes in Leipzig, as well as the Research Academy Leipzig as the umbrella group uniting all the structured doctoral training programmes, provide ideal conditions for implementing these research projects.
