Research Projects

All universities in Lower Saxony have a commitment to transparency in research. Transparency in research means that the following information is published: who is undertaking the research, on whose behalf and on what issue.

Each year on 1st December, the base data regarding the ongoing third-party-funded research projects is collected.

The research projects are divided into years.
