Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences (MPI MIS)

The MPI MIS, founded in 1995, is concerned with mathematical challenges which arise through theoretical questions in the natural sciences. The common denominator of all teams in the institute is the field of partial differential equations and the calculus of variations.


Bio City Leipzig

Biotechnology and biomedicine have a high priority in Leipzig. The BIO CITY LEIPZIG is a strong symbol of this, alongside the support and financial engagement of the city. This has created an exemplary biotechnology-biomedical center in which business, science and research live and work with one another. A place where science is not only shared, but increased. A place where young companies set new standards in biotechnology, biomedicine and health care together with professors from the University of Leipzig.


Leipzig University

Founded at the beginning of the 15th century, the alma mater Lipsiensis originally comprised four faculties: the Faculty of Arts and the three 'higher' faculties, i.e. Theology, Medicine and Law. That structure based on four large faculties remained unchanged for some 500 years. Today there are 14 faculties within the University.
