Research in each profile area is coordinated by a steering committee and an elected spokesperson.

  • The spokespersons act as central contact for research that falls within the scope of their profile area. They also arrange contacts to experts for specific research questions.
  • The profile areas coordinate large-scale, cross-faculty research projects and thus facilitate intensive interdisciplinary research.
  • The profile areas pursue research road maps which help to address relevant research topics early on.
  • The profile areas support the Rector’s Office in the identification of key topics for research and teaching.
