Universität Jena was founded in 1558, in the “Green Heart” of Germany. Thuringia’s largest university values interdisciplinary work and internationalism and puts these goals into action, as seen in the new website. The reformatting of the site has recently begun, and should continually grow. The largest university with the only university medical center in Thuringia has connections around the world, which can be seen in the “International” section of this site. The university cooperates with over 240 universities and research institutions and works with over 200 partners around the world, from small and middle sizes business as well as global players, in research projects. Its roots remain in the region, in which numerous clusters developed from the “Alma mater Jenensis”. These clusters refer to the humanities and social sciences as well as the medical and natural sciences. Jena is once again considered as a high-tech-boomtown and is one of the most beautiful university cities of the reunited Germany. A new campus with top modern lecture halls was built in the heart of the city on the site of the former Zeiss main factory. The new university library offers innovative concept in one of the most attractive library buildings of the republic.
