University of Bayreuth Centre of International Excellence "Alexander von Humboldt"
“Facts long remain isolated, until by laborious investigation
they are brought into connection with each other.”
Alexander von Humboldt, Aspects of Nature (1808)
Since its establishment, the University of Bayreuth has been striving to build strong connections in research as well as in its multilateral networks, connections that serve as a powerful catalyst for sustainable internationalisation and scientific creativity. The University of Bayreuth Centre of International Excellence “Alexander von Humboldt” (short: Bayreuth Humboldt Centre) was founded in 2019 to establish and further strengthen and deepen these ties by inviting outstanding international guest researchers to the University for research visits. The Bayreuth Humboldt Centre supports short and longer visits to the University as well as strategic scientific workshops at the University of Bayreuth that are conducted by Bayreuth researchers with international cooperation partners.
The Bayreuth Humboldt Centre is funded by the German Research Foundation.
