At Bielefeld University, research means transcending boundaries - between disciplines, between people and between science and society. Our guiding principle of Transcending Boundaries is the impulse for top-level basic research at an international level.
Four thematic strategic research areas define the University’s profile. These focus on the major questions of our time and have their applications in society and the economy.
The research performance of Bielefeld University is essentially shaped by its young researchers at all career levels. The university regards the promotion of young researchers as a strategically important and long-term task.
