Core Research Areas

The Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg has identified four core areas of research:

  • Materials Science - Nanostructural Materials
  • Biological Sciences - Structures and Mechanisms of Biological Information Processing
  • Enlightenment - Religion - Knowledge
  • Society and Culture in Motion. Diffusion - Experiment - Institution

Thus the university has laid the groundwork for the coming years with regard to the central goals: research profile enhancement, research-based teaching, international positioning, recruitment of outstanding professors and sustainable transfer of knowledge.

Core Research Areas of the Region / State of Saxony-Anhalt

The core research fields of the MLU conform to the research areas of the region and the state, which is also demonstrated by the close interaction with non-university research institutions in Halle and the surrounding area as well as with the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina.
