The Research Alliance
TU Braunschweig and Leibniz Universität Hannover cooperate closely under the umbrella of their Research Alliance, aiming to further their scientific excellence and securely position themselves for the future against their international competition. The Research Alliance between the two universities was developed under the auspices of the Ministry for Science and Culture of Lower Saxony (MWK). A master plan defines common strategic development goals and pools their complementing scientific strengths in the most promising research areas: mobility, metrology and life sciences.
Three lines of research are derived from this: MOBILISE, QUAOMET and SMART BIOTECS. The government of Lower Saxony will finance the Alliance for five years with start-up funding totalling €27 million – €9 million for five years or €1.8 million per year for each line of research.
