    The Institute of Mathematics is highly involved in its broad spectrum of excellent research:

    Publications in best journals are just an example of our commitment, as well as the memberships in various major editorial boards and the recognition of international awards and prizes.

    Furthermore, the new Humboldt Professorship emphasizes the highest standards in Research of the Institute of Mathematics.

    In addition to research, the Institute of Mathematics also offers to any program a variety of awards as well as an innovative teaching, an aspect which is constantly subject to a quality control.

    In the Bachelor Study, the Institute of Mathematics is characterized by its careful student support (including the JIM  program). Moreover, the Master Study  implements the student professional development within specific formats such as working group and research-related topics.

    The wide variety of mathematical research at the Institute of Mathematics is reflected by its high commitment to interdisciplinarity:

    Research at the Institute of Mathematics is devoted to a wide range of aspects, from very theoretical areas to concrete applications. The continuous interconnections between Mathematics and Economics, Physics, Medicine, etc., not only offer explicit applications for our mathematical program, but also new impulses and stimuli for collaborative mathematical research.

    This attitude is reflected also in our teaching commitment. Indeed, our interdisciplinarity is highly extended to courses of Mathematical Physics and  Mathematical Data Science as well as to our Teaching Degree, which is characterized by a complete and exhaustive view of the several mathematical aspects.

    Internationality is particularly emphasized at the Institute of Mathematics.

    The Institute of Mathematics in Würzburg offers a wide range of summer  and  winter schools both for PhD and Postdoc, with the goal to implement collaborations between the new generations of mathematicians.

    Furthermore, the Institute of Mathematics supports an international background through the established "Master Mathematics International" degree program as well as the Giovanni Prodi Visiting Professorship, which allows to invite each semester renowned scientific personalities from abroad.

    It goes without saying that the Institute of Mathematics maintains worldwide excellent contacts with many institutes, which facilitates the important networking within the research community particularly for graduates.

    The Institute of Mathematics also provides various exchange programs  both for bachelor's and master's studies.
