The profile lines are the seed crystals for the University´s interdisciplinary research profile. This structure reflects the close collaboration within the University and with non-university research institutes. These collaborations, through the creation of centres, gain suitable perspectives for the present and the future development. The triad Light, Life, Liberty therefore reflects the continuing combination of tradition and future development.
