Welcome to Braunschweig

Braunschweig - The lion city

After its founding by Henry the Lion, the city of Braunschweig was shaped throughout the centuries by the Guelphs and the Hanseatic League. Today, Braunschweig, with its population of around 250,000, is the largest city between Hannover and Berlin: it is an attractive city for shopping, has a lively cultural scene and is the centre of one of Europe’s most concentrated research regions. The middle ages can be experienced here in the winding alleyways of the Magni Area with its small timber-framed houses or in the Burgplatz square with its historic buildings just as the modern urban lifestyle can be experienced in this pulsing shopping city. Everything is easy to get to, which is characteristic of a big city - just as the wonderful parks and nature which offer peace, quiet and balance along the banks of the Oker river.

Braunschweig has a lot to offer, not least of all its unique charm: that of a large and modern city with a rich past, where you can find refreshing green oases of leisure alongside the bustle of inner city life. First mentioned in records in 1031, Braunschweig continued to evolve, from the 12th century on strongly influenced by the House of Guelf and the Hanseatic tradition. Magnificent historical buildings such as Dankwarderode Castle and St. Blasii Cathedral in the heart of the city, as well as streets lined with historic houses, still bear witness to Braunschweig’s eventful past.

Conference Location

Location is sited at Technische Universität Braunschweig, one of the oldest Technical universities in Germany and member of the TU9-association of Technical universities.

The origins of TU Braunschweig go back to the Collegium Carolinum, which was founded by Duke Carl I in 1745. It was renamed »Polytechnische Schule« (Polytechnical College) in 1862, before becoming »Herzogliche Technische Hochschule Carolo-Wilhelmina« (Ducal Technical College Carolo-Wilhelmina) in 1878. When a faculty of law and a faculty of philosophy were added, it developed from a technical college into an Institute of Technology. One of its many distinguished alumni was the »Prince of Mathematicians« Carl Friedrich Gauß, born in Braunschweig in 1777.

Based on this history, TU Braunschweig, with its 120 institutes organized into six faculties, offers excellent conditions for visionary research and teaching: the engineering and natural sciences are the academic core subjects and are closely linked with economics, the humanities and the social and educational sciences. Out of 3,462 full-time employees, 223 professors and 1,849 scientific staff members work in research and teaching. Currently at more than 20,000, student numbers increase every year.

Students can choose between approximately 70 different degree courses and numerous extension courses. The quality of teaching at TU Braunschweig has been widely acknowledged and all university facilities are easily accessible. Individual assistance, excursions, mentoring programs and tutorials bring students into contact with the teaching staff and ensure their first semesters go smoothly.

TU Braunschweig is the academic center of the most research-intensive region in Germany - According to Eurostat (last updated Dec. 2016) the Braunschweig Region has the second highest »Total intramural R&D expenditure (Euro per inhabitant)« of all the regions in Europe. Intensive research is undertaken at 27 renowned institutes and 250 companies in the high-tech sector of this region; these are organized in the »Braunschweig Region of Science« platform. Embedded in this environment, TU Braunschweig follows a research concept based on longstanding partnerships with science and industry which contribute to its four defined core research areas: Infections and Active Agents, Nanometrology, City of the Future, and Mobility.

Registration, the Opening and the Welcome Reception as well as Parallel and Poster Sessions will be held close to the main campus located in the Haus der Wissenschaft (House of Science) at Pockelstr. 11.
