Welcome to the QUEST-Leibniz Research School
In line with the future strategy of the Leibniz Universität Hannover, the QUEST-Leibniz Research School was established as the first of its kind. The Research School is a cross-structure bridging several existing faculties. Its research topics are based on research areas of the Excellence Cluster QUEST.
In collaboration with associated faculties, the QUEST-Leibniz Research School appoints new professors, conducts doctoral examination procedures, sets up its own degree programmes, and strengthens existing collaborations with external partners. Especially through the interdisciplinary specially adapted study offers, the QUEST-Leibniz Research School is an attractive facility for students who wish to conduct research at the interface of physics, mathematics, geodesy, and engineering sciences.
All scientific areas are combined under one roof in an interdisciplinary research infrastructure, the Hannover Institute of Technology (HITec), providing top-notch laboratory facilities.
The QUEST-Leibniz Research School, a pilot project for future new facilities at the Leibniz Universität Hannover, was realised through QUEST, which provides the structural framework for excellent cross-faculty research and sets the course for future interdisciplinary large-scale research projects.
