The Göttingen Campus is an alliance between the university and local non-university research institutions, which have come together to promote research, teaching, and the training of young researchers.
By drawing on their joint strengths and potential, campus partners have created a unique and stimulating environment that encourages diversity and an active exchange between professors, researchers and doctoral students.
International networks and interdisciplinary centers serve as platforms for new ideas and innovative research concepts. They are embedded in a campus setting that provides access to an impressive collection of resources, facilities, infrastructure, and support services.
3rd night of science
On 21 January 2017, all Göttingen Campus members open their doors and invite you to experience the Goettingen Spirit first hand. You are welcome to experiment, listen, learn and talk to our scientists about their work.
