Since its foundation, Zeppelin University has seen itself as a research-oriented university, giving research at all levels – from students to junior researchers to professors – a central value. Study formats such as the Zeppelin Year and the Humboldt Year promote the researcher spirit among the students. The constant increase in external research funds, high-impact publications and consultant 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. In cross-departmental research clusters and research centers, work is done on central, socially relevant questions and research colloquia invite discourse that runs laterally to the disciplines.
