Leibniz ScienceCampi

The Leibniz ScienceCampus model is the Leibniz Association's answer to the often lamented parallel existence of university and non-university research (“pillarisation”) in the German research system.

Leibniz ScienceCampi promote cooperation on an equal footing between Leibniz institutions and universities in the form of thematically-focused, complementary regional partnerships.

The objective is to create networks to drive the respective research field and to strengthen the scientific environment for the relevant themes.

The networks conduct strategic research, encourage interdisciplinarity in their topics, projects and methods, enhance the visibility of the respective location and hone its research profile.
