TU Braunschweig's research profile is actively shaped by several interdisciplinary and interdepartmental research associations, organised as research centres. In addition to funding established, renowned scientists, TU Braunschweig places a strong emphasis on promoting talented young scientists within these centres. The research projects that receive funding are characterised by a high potential for innovation and high standards of scientific quality with national or international visibility, all of which is confirmed by external evaluators on a regular basis.
Our interdisciplinary research centres are long-term interdisciplinary and interdepartmental research associations of Technische Universität Braunschweig. Professors from at least two faculties come together to form a Research Centre. In most cases, non-university research institutions are involved as well.
To cover interdisciplinary topics that pose anchor points for cooperation with research centres or with individual institutes, additional research associations have been created that function across department boundaries.
