Research in the North is international, excellent and diverse. The main research areas at the universities in the Northern Verbund cover a very broad spectrum - from marine research to energy generation.
In 2018, the Association of North German Universities (VNU) will continue to financially support the initiation, strengthening and expansion of research cooperation between its member universities with the "Impulse Research" format.
The promotion of young scientists is a central concern of the universities in the North. The instruments to support them are diverse - graduate academies, research training groups or doctoral programmes.
The aim of the Research Working Group is to enter into a closer exchange of research initiatives via the research centres of the Nordverbund universities. In this way, synergy effects can be exploited and a joint research network for the study and research location of Northern Germany can be strengthened.
