Research with strong partners

The Friedrich Schiller University Jena pools its research into three main themes in the focal research areas of Light, Life, Liberty. The strong third-party funding availability at FSU Jena is based on an outstanding foundation of individual research and coordinated research projects and networks, supported by the German Research Foundation (DFG), the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the European Union (EU) , to name just a few.

The university enganges as a partner to non-university research centres, research-driven companies and well-known cultural institutions on both a regional and national basis. In cooperation with the universities in Leipzig and Halle-Wittenberg, the University of Jena is committed to promoting the long-term development of Central Germany as a centre for innovative academia. In addition, Friedrich Schiller University Jena actively supports close and long-term networking with top international universities and outstanding scientists.
