Research Profile

Fulda University is one of the most research-oriented universities of applied sciences in Germany. Research is carried out in three main areas: "health care, nutrition, food", "interculturality and social sustainability" and "computer science and systems technology".

This research orientation is also reflected in the right to independently confer doctoral degrees, which was awarded to Fulda University of Applied Sciences in October 2016. It is the first German university of applied sciences to receive this right. The University also runs cooperative doctoral programmes and various doctoral research groups in collaboration with other universities.

This means that graduates of Master's degrees have the opportunity to continue their education within the framework of a doctoral programme. The wide range of subjects offered by eight departments and several research centres provide excellent conditions for interdisciplinary study.

In addition to its interdisciplinary focus, Fulda University attaches great importance to a practical and application-based orientation. Research projects are consequently developed and – if approved – carried out in close cooperation with partners from industry.

Member of EUA and CDE

The research activities of Fulda University gained special recognition when it became a full member of the European University Association (EUA) in 2008. It was the first European university of applied sciences – at that time still a UAS without the right to confer doctoral degrees – to qualify for admission to the European university network. The basis for admission is active and successful participation in European and national research programmes. Since 2014, the University has also been a member of the Council for Doctoral Education (CDE), a sub-organisation of EUA, a leading voice in doctoral education in Europe.
