CLUSTERS OF EXCELLENCE

Within the Excellence Strategy, the DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft) and the German Council of Science and Humanities (Wissenschaftsrat) support project-based funding in internationally competitive research fields at a university or university consortium. The Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geodetic Science is involved in two Clusters of Excellence.

Quantum Frontiers - Light and Matter at the Quantum Frontier

(Leibniz Universität Hannover, Technische Universität Braunschweig, Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt)

QuantumFrontiers and Geodesy: Prof. Dr. Jürgen Müller, Institute of Geodesy

  • Optical Clocks for Observing Gravity Potential and Height Differences
  • Quantum Gravimeters Based on Atom Interferometry
  • Next Generation of Satellite Gravimetry

SE2A – Sustainable and Energy-Efficient Aviation

(Technische Universität Braunschweig / Leibniz Universität Hannover, Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt, Hochschule für Bildende Künste Braunschweig, Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt)

Composites: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Raimund Rolfes, Institute of Structural Analysis

  • Stability, impact and fatigue behavior of composites
  • Tailored fiber placement and variable stiffness laminates
  • Thin-ply-laminates and size effects

LEIBNIZ RESEARCH CENTRES

Leibniz Research Centres draw international attention to their excellent research activities. They are evaluated regularly by external referees and collaborate with non-university research institutions.

QUEST LEIBNIZ RESEARCH SCHOOL

In line with the future strategy of Leibniz University Hannover, the QUEST Leibniz Research School forms a cross-structure to the existing faculties (Faculty of Mathematics and Physics and Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geodetic Science) and creates the structural framework for excellent, cross-faculty research as well as for future interdisciplinary large-scale research projects.

The QUEST Leibniz Research School emerged from the Cluster of Excellence QUEST - Centre for Quantum Engineering and Space-Time Research.

The research activities of QUEST-Leibniz Research School focus on "Enabling Technologies", "Quantum Engineering", "Quantum Sensors" and "Space-Time Research.
