Foundation: 1818

Mission: Our mission is to deliver the highest level of education and support for our students and junior researchers, and to provide an environment conducive to free academic discussion and scientific exchange. We aim to provide optimal conditions for research in order to attract the best scientists and enable them to address fundamental research questions that underlie and define major scientific, technological and societal challenges. We believe this is best achieved by fostering a collaborative and innovative research culture in a framework that promotes individual creativity and early independence. In the city of Bonn, the cradle of German democracy after World War II, we promote the ideas of enlightenment and democracy as the basis for freedom in research and the prosperity of our society.

Ranks by Subject area

We have divided the scientific output of the institution into 19 large areas of knowledge and the following table shows only the ranks in different territorial domains achieved by the institution in each of the areas. For an institution to have a presence in an area, it is necessary that it exceed in the last year a minimum output threshold equivalent to twice the percentage that this area represents in the world.
