Research Profile

As an internationally acting research university, the University of Heidelberg understands the high theoretical and methodological competence of its subjects and subject cultures as an essential feature of its scientific work.

In addition to its disciplinary strength, however, it also recognizes its special potential, through cooperation and beyond the boundaries of the disciplines, to work on complex problems that are central to shaping the future and thus to assume social responsibility. Much of the university research and teaching at Ruperto Carola was brought together in the framework of the federal and state Excellence Initiative under the banner of the major research fields, the "Fields of Focus".
