Institutional Strategy I

The concept of the comprehensive university is a central component of the university’s institutional strategy, “Heidelberg: Realising the Potential of a Comprehensive University”, which proved successful in Excellence Initiative I (2007) of the federal and state governments. Institutional Strategy I is particularly concerned with dialogue across traditional disciplinary boundaries and the development of new forms of cooperation across fields of expertise.

Institutional Strategy

Realising the Potential of a Comprehensive University

Semper Apertus 250x125The concept of the comprehensive university is a central component of Heidelberg University’s strategy. With its extraordinary breadth of preeminent subjects and disciplines, the university aims to make a significant contribution to our understanding of the complex material, biological, cultural and societal issues of our times. This requires not only strong research disciplines, but also the basic conditions that enable and foster work across disciplinary boundaries.  The university’s institutional strategy, “Heidelberg: Realising the Potential of a Comprehensive University”, therefore emphasises interdisciplinary dialogue.
 

The University's Fields of Focus

Portal Alte Uni 100x100In the first funding phase of the Excellence Initiative, four main areas of research, the Fields of Focus, have emerged on which interdisciplinary research cooperation would concentrate. These four interactive areas are to be further developed as the core of Heidelberg’s research strategy in the second funding phase.

FoF 1: Molecular and Cellular Basis of Life

FoF 2: Structure and Pattern Formation in the Material World

FoF 3: Cultural Dynamics in Globalised Worlds

FoF 4: Self-regulation and Regulation: Individuals and Organisations (Ger)
