The Humboldt-University of Berlin


The Humboldt University of Berlin, one of Berlin's oldest universities, was founded in 1810. Amongst the wide spectrum of research activities, the university has identified the following focal points: studies of the ancient world and history of science; philosophy; quantitative economics; life sciences with a focus on theoretical biology, neuroscience and immunobiology; mathematics as a key technology; material and optical sciences as well as climate and sustainability research.

As one of eleven German universities, the Humboldt-University was chosen “University of Excellence” in June 2012. It was successful in all three funding lines in the third round of the Excellence Initiative of the German federal and state governments and awarded for its future concept “Educating Enquiring Minds: Individuality – Openness – Guidance”. In an international comparison, Humboldt- University ranks among the top ten of German universities. Scientists here research socially relevant topics and challenges of the future and communicate these with the public. The aim of the University is to promote young talents and to positively influence society and economy outside the university framework.
