Since its foundation in 1388, the University of Cologne is a European Center for Science and Teaching. Today, it is one of the leading research universities in Germany. We offer our students an exceptionally broad and varied range of subjects and encourage them to pursue their academic interests and to develop both intellectually and personally. It is our goal to promote human knowledge through basic research, while at the same time enabling practical implementation in everyday life.

The university awards for the categories "research", "teaching and study" and "administration" were awarded, each with 5,000 euros, as well as the Schmittmann Election Fellowship in recognition of the excellent study achievements. The institutional foundations of research at the University of Cologne are their 6 faculties with 102 study subjects and their 10 faculties of interdisciplinary research and teaching centers. Large, internationally competitive research focuses on the mechanisms of age-related diseases, plant breeding research, quantum materials and materials, social and economic behavior as well as the socio-economic, cultural and political changes in Africa, Latin America and Southeast Asia. The University of Cologne cooperates closely with the University Hospital Cologne as well as renowned research facilities of the Max Planck Society and the Helmholtz Association in the Cologne region. It is particularly committed to the transfer of knowledge and business start-ups: the Center for Organic Electronics COPT is a bridge between university top research and companies; the gateway foundation service supports members of the university in implementing their own business ideas. The high corporate density in the region offers an ideal environment for this. In the current 45 graduate schools and colleges, the next generation of scholars is ideal.
