Advance through networks
Innovation in research today is no longer entirely driven by developments in traditional academic disciplines, but in interdisciplinary collaboration. ‘Advance through networks’ is therefore a fitting motto to define and direct our work at FAU. FAU’s reputation as an outstanding research university with innovative academic structures and an unparalleled range of subjects is based on this approach: diversity as the basis for outstanding research results and the cultivation of a complete research profile. Each of FAU’s interfaculty Major Research Areas and the Emerging Fields Initiative are key to the interdisciplinary and collaborative nature of this unique research constellation.
