“Advancing Science for Transformative Solutions.” This is the guiding principle governing the research strategy of our University. Research at TU Darmstadt is particularly influenced by interdisciplinary work and networking across departments. This way, we contribute significantly to sustainably transforming science, technology, economy and society.
The research strategy of TU Darmstadt had been developed in a participatory process in 2020. Starting with an analysis of the special characteristics of research at TU Darmstadt, we formulated our research strategy with the vision of in-depth, excellent and attractive research for both students and scientists in mind. All of this is relevant in transforming and sustainably advancing science, technology, economy and society. To realise this vision, we defined seven goals and various measures.
With three fields of research and starting out with four research topics for each field, we have conceptualised the contextual strength of research of TU Darmstadt anew within the strategy process. Our three fields of research Environment (E+E), Information and Intelligence (I+I) as well as Matter and Materials (M+M) span resonant spaces in which we jointly seek and find answers to important questions of science and society. Within these fields of research, top scientists and their teams propel research forward by way of highly focussed and relevant research topics. These high-profile research topics shape the academic reputation of Technical University of Darmstadt.
