Mission: Teaching as a dialogue – the focus is on the student: We consider teaching to be a dynamic partnership between teacher and taught. Our broad range of subjects provides opportunities for students to gain tailor-made qualifications and opens up a wide variety of avenues for professional and personal development. We educate the experts of tomorrow by offering forward-looking courses with an interdisciplinary focus to interested and motivated students. Our teaching staff are committed to providing the best possible guidance and advice to our students. We constantly review and develop our courses, facilitate the transition from school to university and support life-long learning. Research as a challenge – we aim for the top: We define core research areas so as to consolidate our strengths and achieve outstanding results in international competition. Our exemplary facilities and cooperation agreements with external institutions provide ideal conditions for research. Excellent education and the support of the next academic generation are among our most important tasks. Challenging and internationally competitive graduate schools contribute to this. Cooperation as a principle – we work as a team: Our research position is strengthened by regional cooperation agreements with other universities and research institutions. By working closely with industry we play our part in the development of region and state. We support transfer of technology, start-ups and continuing academic education. We maintain teaching and research partnerships with leading universities both nationally and internationally.
Vision: Universality - our strength is rooted in diversity: Our broad spectrum of subjects ranges from engineering and natural sciences, architecture and environmental planning, law, social sciences, economics and management to the humanities. Only few universities in Germany provide such a varied range of subjects. We are committed to further developing our profile, while attaching particular importance to interdisciplinary teaching and research. Theoria cum praxi - what is important for life is important for us: At Leibniz University Hannover we consider academic teaching to be a unity of knowledge, reflection on the real world and moral responsibility. Theoria cum praxi means for us, as it did for Leibniz, a synthesis of research guided by insight and application, each benefiting the other. Creating new ideas - we are committed to excellence in teaching and research: In our eyes, teaching and research are closely interrelated. We create the best possible conditions to be attractive as a university both in Germany and abroad. By refining and developing our profile we aim to be part of the international elite, confidently competing for the best minds in research and teaching.
The following data gives a quick reading on the scientific performance in the last years. The research ranking refers to the volume, impact and quality of the institution's research output. The innovation ranking is calculated on the number of patent applications of the institution and the citations that its research output receives from patents. Finally, the societal ranking is based on the number of pages of the institution's website and the number of backlinks and mentions from social networks.
The result of the evaluation of the institution can be compared to obtain a view of the country, the region to which it belongs and the institutions of the world, placing it in their respective positions.
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. If you need scientific indicators on these areas visit Scopus and/or SciVal.

These are the journals used by the institution's researchers to publish their work in the last year. The size of each circle represents the value of the SJR of the publication, and its spatial position represents its subject matter.
This visualizatión allows you to identify the knowledge areas where the institution has published, recognize the prestige of the scientific journals in which the institution knowledge has been published, and identify predominant scientific communities.
