The University of Bonn was founded in 1818 and is one of Germany’s and Europe’s most significant institutes of higher education. Home to learning for over 36,000 students, the University of Bonn has earned itself an outstanding reputation both at home and abroad. The University of Bonn is a research-based university that operates on an international level with over 70 university-partnerships world-wide. Nationally and internationally renowned specializations and combinations give the University of Bonn its particular academic and research profile. One key research area is “Life & Health” where researchers in Bonn focus on two systems: the nervous system and the immune system. Excellence in these research areas is perhaps best reflected in the Cluster of Excellence “ImmunoSensation”, which was established in 2012, and the Life & Brain GmbH who work in close collaboration with industry and commerce. The University of Bonn further collaborates closely with research partners from Max Planck Institutes, the Centre of Advanced European Studies and Research (caesar), the Research Centre Jülich (FZJ), the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the Fraunhofer Society (FhG) institutes.
