The Marsilius Kolleg under the direction of Prof. Dr. Hans-Georg Kräusslich and Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Schluchter is a cornerstone of Heidelberg University’s Institutional Strategy to promote top-level research in the framework of the Excellence Initiative organised by Germany’s state and federal governments. Its aim is to bring together handpicked researchers from various academic cultures, thereby encouraging a research-related dialogue between the humanities, law and social sciences on the one hand, and the natural and life sciences on the other.
