JLU_Main_BuildingJLU Giessen, founded in 1607, is a modern university with an international spirit and a sense of tradition. It provides the full range of subjects of a traditional university and emphasises the life sciences and cultural studies. The University is dedicated to excellent research and teaching. It bears the name of one of its most famous scientists: Justus Liebig, who became professor of chemistry at the University in the 19th century, and who taught for almost 30 years in Giessen. A unique range of subjects and international cooperation programmes in the areas of research, teaching, and study testify to JLU’s competitiveness on both national and international levels.

Recently, JLU has been remarkably successful in the context of the German JLU_International_Research_Centre“Excellence Initiative”. The programme promotes top-class university research and aims at establishing internationally visible research beacons in Germany. Justus Liebig University achieved an impressive result in this nationwide contest: the International Graduate Centre for the Study of Culture and the Research Cluster Cardio-Pulmonary System are funded with budgets of about 25 million Euros initially over five years.
