Georg-August University of Goettingen was founded in 1737. As an institution is resulted from the critical spirit of the Enlightenment. Georgia Augusta succeeded in producing or offering temporary scientific shelter to world-class researchers throughout the ages who have contributed to the University's international reputation in the natural sciences as well as in the arts. Goettingen is linked with over 40 Nobel Prize winners who researched and lived here during their times. The high standard of research and research-based teaching provides continuing inspiration to expanding the University's excellence as it faces the challenges confronting universities in the 21st century. Reform projects in research, teaching and administration provide a firm basis for the future.
