Research orientation & Interdisciplinarity

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 the patterns of scientific disciplines. This is why Zeppelin University has committed itself to a dedicated promotion of interdisciplinary research: cross-disciplinary research clusters and institutes & centers work on central socially relevant issues, and research colloquia invite discourse that cuts across disciplines. For more information on the research clusters and institutes & centers, please see "The Research Landscape of Zeppelin University".

Comprehensive information on research at ZU can be found in our research documentation system ZUdoc.
