University of Bonn
WE invest in people – WE foster networks – WE create impact
The University of Bonn was successful with its strategy „WE invest in people – WE foster networks – WE create impact“. The core elements of its strategy are the six Transdisciplinary Research Areas (TRAs), which promote cutting-edge research across faculties on selected future topics.
The University of Bonn, founded in 1818, has been funded as a University of Excellence since 2019. Its goal is to further expand its research profile. The focus is on the six Transdisciplinary Research Areas (TRAs), each underpinned by a Cluster of Excellence, in which cutting-edge interdisciplinary research is conducted.
In addition, the University of Bonn has been funding additional professorships to strengthen the TRAs and areas of potential, measures to support early-career researchers and tenure track professorships at the interfaces between disciplines. Through various networks within the TRAs, but also locally, regionally and internationally, the University of Bonn cooperates with numerous partner institutions. The activities of the University of Bonn aim to generate societal impact, working as a motor for bringing research into society.
