In accordance with the Leibniz University's strategy for the future, the QUEST-Leibniz-Forschungsschule has been established as the first of its kind. The research school is an orthogonal structure to the existing departments and covers very similar topics as the Cluster of Excellence QUEST.
The QUEST-Leibniz-Forschungsschule together with the involved university departments implements appointment procedures and doctorate procedures. It also intiates its own study programs and extends existing cooperations with external partners. Especially the individually suited interdisciplinary courses make the QUEST-Leibniz-Forschungsschule attractive for students working on the interface of physics, mathematics and geodesics.
With QUEST a pilot project has been realized for future institutions at the Leibniz Universität Hannover. It creates the structural framework for excellent inter-departmental research and laid down the tracks for future interdisciplinary large-scale research projects.
