Interdisciplinarity & research orientation

Since its foundation, Zeppelin University has seen itself as a research-oriented university, that gives central importance to research at all levels – from students to junior researchers to professors. Study formats such as the Zeppelin-Project and the Humboldt-Year promote the researcher spirit among the students. The constant increase in third-party research funding, high-impact publications and reviewer activities by academics are an expression of this University’s research performance.

Social phenomena rarely fit into the pattern of academic disciplines. This is why Zeppelin University is committed to a dedicated promotion of interdisciplinary research: Interdisciplinary research clusters and research centers work on central socially relevant issues, and research colloquia invite discourse that cut across disciplines.
