Friedrich-Schiller-Universitat Jena

The Friedrich Schiller University Jena is one of the oldest universities in Germany. Founded in 1558, it is now the largest university in Thuringia and shapes Jena’s character as a forward-looking and open-minded city. It attracts students and researchers from all over the world. Tolerant cooperation and the exchange of scientific ideas across (subject) boundaries are firmly anchored in the University’s self-image. The University of Jena works closely with non-university research institutions and research-oriented companies and is an essential economic and innovation factor for the state of Thuringia and beyond.
