Research, discover, invent – lateral thinking is welcome

FAU is a full-spectrum university with a long tradition of research. Over 250 degree programmes and long-standing partnerships with international research institutions such as Max Planck, Fraunhofer and Helmholtz give staff and students the opportunity to look beyond the boundaries of their own subjects, network with others and consider research questions from different perspectives. FAU encourages its members to think in every direction – above all laterally! This diversity makes FAU one of Germany’s leading research universities.

  • In recognition of our outstanding expertise in quantum research: a consortium consisting of eleven researchers from FAU will receive roughly three million euros in funding by 2025. The new lighthouse project Quantum Measurement and Control for the Enablement of Quantum Computing and Quantum Sensing will ignite basic research into quantum computing, sensing and imaging, combining physics and electrical engineering in new ways in the field of light and matter.

  • One of the rare diseases is hereditary spastic paraplegia, a disease that causes spasms and weakness in the leg muscles, increasingly affecting mobility as the disease progresses. Approximately 77,000 people across Europe suffer from the condition. Researchers have already discovered that the disease starts in nerve cells in the brain. These are obviously particularly difficult to investigate.
