Following the Higher Education Development Plan (HEP 2025), the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science integrates its research strength into the strategic research fields of Leipzig University and is one of the university's faculties with a high level of third-party funding. A key feature of research at the faculty is its internationality.

Profiling of the faculty in the research landscape of the Leipzig University

In the competition among Germany's research-strong and medical-leading universities, the University of Leipzig (UL) strives for top positions in the future in accordance with its goals laid down in the University Development Plan 2025. The faculty is actively involved in this process, for example by participating in the establishment of new regional, national and international research networks and cooperations. This is also with the aim of strengthening the profile with regard to interdisciplinary cooperation and international networking as well as the development of a structured doctorate of young researchers.

Research Profile Area Mathematical and Computational Sciences

Leipzig Uiversity focuses its research in three strategic research fields. The nine research profile areas gathered in these fields involve the humanities and social sciences, the life sciences and the natural sciences in roughly equal parts and in transdisciplinary cooperation. The Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science is particularly active in the strategic research area "Intelligent Methods and Materials". The research profile area "Mathematical and Computational Sciences" contained therein is supported and advanced by the faculty in many ways.

Research Center ScaDS.AI

ScaDS.AI (Center for Scalable Data Analysis and Artificial Intelligence) is a research center for Data Science, Artificial Intelligence and Big Data with locations in Leipzig and Dresden. Both locations are each connected to a local university, i.e. the University of Leipzig and the TU Dresden. In the Leipzig part of the center, professors from various faculties of the University of Leipzig are involved (including medicine, geosciences, physics, business informatics, computer science), with the majority being members of the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science. As one of five new AI centers in Germany, ScaDS.AI has been funded since 2019 as part of the federal government's AI strategy and is supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the Free State of Saxony. The goal is to establish the facility as a permanent research center.

ScaDS.AI extends the national competence center for Big Data, ScaDS, founded in 2014, and supports the fast and efficient transfer of research results to the free economy. In an increasing number of cooperation projects with companies, state-of-the-art AI and data science methods are put into practice and the innovative strength and competitiveness of the participating companies and thus also of Saxony as a science and business location are strengthened.

Graduiertenzentrum Mathematik/ Informatik und Naturwissenschaften

Das Graduiertenzentrum Mathematik/Informatik und Naturwissenschaften besteht aus exzellenten Promotionsprogrammen, die an der Fakultät für Mathematik und Informatik, der Fakultät für Physik und Geowissenschaften und der Fakultät für Chemie und Mineralogie sowie am Max-Planck-Institut „Mathematik in den Naturwissenschaften“ (MPI MIS) eingerichtet sind.

Projekte an der FMI

Die Professuren behaupten sich regelmäßig im kompetitiven Wettbewerb um Forschungsprojekte des Bundes, der EU und der DFG. Sie arbeiten ferner eng mit ansässigen und überregionalen Unternehmen zusammen.
