Clusters of excellence

In 2007 Universität Hamburg implemented its cluster of excellence in climate research as part of Germany's Excellence Initiative: KlimaCampus Hamburg provides a competence and training center for climate research and earth system sciences.

In 2012 Universität Hamburg received funding for an additional cluster of excellence: the Hamburg Centre for Ultrafast Imaging (CUI): Structure, Dynamics and Control of Matter at the Atomic Scale. The CUI focuses on the real-time observation of atomic motions.

Research foci

In addition to climate, earth, and environment our key research areas comprise: matter and the universe, neurosciences, multilingualism, governance, heterogeneity and education, as well as infection research and structural biology.

In accordance with its Structure and Development Plan (STEP; PDF, in German only) Universität Hamburg dedicates itself to combining selected research areas with a broad spectrum of courses.
