Freie Universität Berlin

Freie Universität Berlin is a leading research institution. It is one of the German universities successful in all three funding lines in the federal and state Excellence Initiative, thereby receiving additional funding for its institutional future development strategy. Freie Universität can thus take its place as an international network university in the global competition among universities. Development and assessment of research projects take place within various focus areas, research networks, and platforms for interdisciplinary collaborative research. The University’s performance in the Excellence Initiative provided funding for several new graduate schools and transdisciplinary research clusters. In particular, graduate schools play a key role in the development of internationally competitive research centres of excellence. Freie Universität Berlin is a broad-based university with 15 departments and central institutes offering over 150-degree programs across a wide range of subjects. Freie Universität Berlin’s Liaison Office in New Delhi works to facilitate and develop cooperation between Freie Universität Berlin and the University’s partners in India. It seeks to inform students, doctoral candidates, as well as junior and senior scholars from Germany and India and helps initiate and establish joint research projects.
