FAU Research Center for Islam and Law in Europe (FAU EZIRE)
The FAU Research Center for Islam and Law in Europe (FAU EZIRE) conducts multidisciplinary research into Muslim life in the context of constitutional European states. It investigates how European legal systems react to Muslim life, and how Muslims’ perception of themselves and the autonomous organization of religion develop in this context. These questions are considered in a broader context encompassing societal developments in Europe and connections to developments outside Europe regarding law, religion, political and social change. EZIRE’s research considers the issues from a perspective of research into social sciences, law, Islamic studies and religious studies.

This makes FAU CSC a unique interdisciplinary cooperation platform that provides the right environment for even the most complex research tasks in numeric simulation and scientific computing.
FAU Competence Center for Research Data and Information (FAU CDI)
FAU CDI is a central research institution that provides support to all researchers at the University and at Universitätsklinikum Erlangen with questions and tasks regarding research data management and the CRIS Research Information System. This support includes providing advice with funding applications as well as services for handling research data and e-research projects.
FAU Competence Center Optical Imaging Center Erlangen (FAU OICE)
FAU OICE was founded in 2012, based on the close collaboration between FAU and the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light (MPL). Its mission is to provide and coordinate access to high-end optical microscopes in its Core Facility Unit (CFU) and to develop new microscope systems and techniques in its Exploratory Research Unit (ERU). The Educational Training Unit (ETU) provides training for students and researchers in placements and seminars.
Center for Applied Philosophy of Science and Key Qualifications (FAU ZIWIS)
FAU ZIWIS focuses on the innovative area of applied philosophy of science, which examines the theoretical and practical preconditions and consequences of science as a whole, i.e. the history, ethics and philosophy of science. Its research is published via an inter-faculty platform and used in collaborative projects. FAU ZIWIS also provides teaching resources and networking opportunities for students and researchers at FAU and offers key qualifications (SQ).
FAU Competence Center Engineering of Advanced Materials (FAU EAM)
FAU EAM further develops scientific methods and processes in FAU’s key research priority New Materials and Processes and provides a wide range of infrastructure, expertise and services. It is divided into seven specialist departments and the Graduate School of Engineering of Advanced Materials (GS EAM).
FAU Research Center New Bioactive Compounds (FAU NeW)
The goal of FAU NeW is to connect, strengthen and improve the focus of interdisciplinary work in the areas of materials, target areas, mechanisms, and bioanalysis. In addition to ongoing research projects and modules with close links to practical applications, the research center provides a structured graduate program as well as core facilities for mass spectrometry/formulation for life sciences.
FAU Research Center Mathematics of Data (FAU MoD)
At FAU MoD, researchers from various FAU institutions, the Max Planck Center for Physics and Medicine and the ADA Lovelace Center from the Fraunhofer IIS work together to gain a better understanding of the mathematics of large and complex volumes of data. FAU MoD combines expertise and experience from the area of data science with applied mathematics, scientific computing and artificial intelligence in order to tackle the challenges posed by the wide scope of modern research and various innovative industrial sectors.
FAU MoD and the globally connected Nuremberg Metropolitan Region are making a significant contribution to modern research in the area of “Mathematics of Data”.
FAU Research Center Embedded Systems Initiative (FAU ESI)
