Association for the support of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at Kiel University (Förderverein)


Our aims

Findings in mathematics and natural science shape our understanding of the world and have an increasing influence on our way of life. Along with ethical principles, discoveries made by natural scientists form the basis for establishing norms and values, which are essential for responsible governance within society.

The academic environment of increasing specialisation can restrict the potential scope of scientific research. The risk of specialising is that individual scientists might not be able to overcome the barriers that exist between clearly-defined scientific areas. 

The “Förderverein” aims to dismantle these barriers and to make an interdisciplinary collaboration possible. Also, we want to give scientists the opportunity to look beyond their own field of work. To this end, we offer various possibilities for our faculty members to meet and collaborate.

What we do

First of all, we want to stress the importance of mathematics and natural science in all of our lives. Furthermore, we wish to emphasise the potential these sciences have for dealing with future challenges. In this respect, we promote the public image of our faculty and its specific accomplishments in research and teaching.
