Research, discover, invent – lateral thinking is welcome

FAU - Research

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.

  • Two researchers have been awarded a Consolidator Grant from the European Research Council. The ERC Consolidator Grant entails two million euros in funding over a funding period of five years.

  • Once again, FAU has successfully demonstrated its strength in innovation and research. In the current funding round, the University has succeeded in winning not one, but two more Humboldt professorships: Prof. Dr. Michaela Mahlberg and Prof. Dr. Eva Pils.

  • This year, the Federal President’s prize for technology and innovation has been awarded to a team from Erlangen. Prof. Dr. Michael Uder and his two team colleagues from Siemens Healthineers have been awarded the German Future Prize 2023.
