Research that Benefits Society
The Technische Universität Berlin is one of the leading research universities in Germany. We have seen a continuous rise in third-party funding and set up a cluster and a graduate school thanks to the award of Excellence competition funding. We also rank highly in international league tables and have received numerous prizes and accolades including Alexander von Humboldt Professorships, Leibniz Awards and grants from the European Research Council. TU Berlin's research activities are structured around six areas of specialization and informed by our competencies and social responsibilities. Our international reputation and special profile as a university bringing together technical subjects with the humanities, economics, and social and planning sciences provide a firm basis for interdisciplinary research. This takes place most notably in number of successful collaborative projects.
