International guests in the faculty

We are hosts for universities from all over the world

We host meetings and conferences for universities from all over the world: Thanks to our central location in Germany and our proximity to Frankfurt Airport, we are ideally situated to provide facilities for meetings. And as many tourist and industrial highlights are just a stone’s throw away, paying us a visit us can easily be combined with a flying visit to Heidelberg, Frankfurt or one of the many companies in the area.

We offer the opportunity to do a doctorate

We offer the opportunity to pursue a doctorate: Three of our current doctoral students came to us from abroad and are now working on their doctorates here. Taking the first steps into professional life is easier thanks to the German language courses we offer, the doctoral seminar is held in English anyway, and we always look forward to welcoming new students.

We offer refugee scientists the chance of a new academic home

We offer displaced scientists the chance to find a new academic home: Together with the Institute of International Education, we do our utmost to help scientists who have been deprived of their livelihood at home due to civil wars or other dangers. We provide them with a suitable environment in which to continue their research, to publish and to re-establish themselves in a new country.

We research together with scientists from all over the world

We conduct research together with scientists from all over the world: Many of our research activities are carried out in cooperation with scientists from abroad; our colleagues attend conferences in Germany and worldwide. Large projects require international partners, and as we become increasingly involved in research, we are also looking for further contacts with research institutes overseas.
