Research at the Faculty for Mathematics and Natural Sciences

The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at the University of Bonn is the leading faculty in Germany for natural scientific research. With participation in four excellence clusters, various Collaborative Research Centers (SFB), Transregional Collaborative Research Centers (TRR), and graduate schools, as well as research groups, the research activities of our faculty are interdisciplinary and cover a wide range of topics. It is also worth noting our close, cross-faculty collaboration on research projects with the Medical, Agricultural, and Law and Political Science Faculties.

Through the establishment of the university-wide BTC (Bonn Technology Campus) at the University of Bonn, the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences is part of a one-of-a-kind Core Facility, Service, and Technology Park in Germany, providing all researchers with access to state-of-the-art facilities.

Research and Technology Center for Detector Physics (FTD)

Research into the structure of matter on the smallest length scales requires the development of ever more powerful detectors and accelerators. The Research and Technology Center for Detector Physics (Forschungs- und Technologiezentrum Detektorpysik, FTD) provides its users with highly technical infrastructure and measurement laboratories for the development of modern detectors for experimental particle physics and beyond on an area of about 3000 square meters.

Marvin - State of the Art Tier 3 Cluster

A big tier 3 HPC cluster was purchased by the University of Bonn in October 2022. Marvin will be open to all (HPC-experienced) scientists at the University of Bonn, including the University Hospital Bonn (Universitätsklinikum, UKB) and their external project partners.
