Freie Universität Berlin
Freie Universität Berlin is one of eleven institutions that were successful in all three funding lines of the Excellence Initiative, which was held by the German federal and state governments in 2012. It is a leading research institution and offers outstanding conditions for international doctoral candidates, scholars, and scientists. The traditional research campus in Dahlem, which has been home to Freie Universität Berlin since it was founded in 1948, has strongly influenced the city of Berlin. Such luminaries as Albert Einstein, Otto Hahn, and Lise Meitner conducted research here. Freie Universität’s dense network of scholarly and scientific institutions provides ideal conditions for research and teaching.
Networking in research – both internationally and across disciplines – is one of the core principles underlying the university’s current research activities and its strategy for the future. Freie Universität’s objective is to attract the best doctoral candidates, scholars, and scientists from all over the world. To this end, it has developed bilateral and international doctoral programs in recent years that offer excellent working conditions for doctoral candidates from abroad.
Freie Universität’s Center for International Cooperation maintains seven liaison offices around the world. They support the university’s efforts to recruit excellent doctoral candidates and junior scholars and scientists. Freie Universität’s Dahlem Research School (DRS) functions as a center for the promotion of junior scholars and scientists. It develops strategies to provide doctoral candidates and postdoctoral researchers with optimum support.
