Leibniz research alliances

The Leibniz Association unites 86 autonomous research institutions. Their scope ranges from natural sciences to engineering and environmental sciences, to economics, space and social sciences and the humanities. Leibniz institutes work on aspects bearing social, economic and ecological relevance. They provide fundamental research driven by insights and oriented towards applicability. The institutes entertain scientific infrastructures and deliver research-based services.

The Leibniz Association places priorities on scientific transfer to politics, science, economics and the general public. Leibniz institutes maintain close cooperations with universities – e.g. science campuses - , with the industry and other partners at home and abroad. Leibniz institutes are subjected to a transparent and independent review procedure that sets standards. Owing tot heir national relevance, Leibniz institutes are jointly funded by the federation (Bund) and the federal states (Länder).

Leibniz institutes currently employ ca. 17,200 persons, among them 8,200 scientists. The total budget of all institutes is 1.4 billion Euros.
