Representation of the State of Hessen to the EU

The state of Hessia (Hessen) situated at the centre of Germany is well-known for its pulsating universities of applied sciences, research institutes and universities - some of which are leading in different research fields. Our region offers great research opportunities for scientists and strives to attract talents to Hessia in a number of research fields. Current research priorities of the European Union like digitization, climate and health, and particularly pandemic-related and cancer research, are perfectly matching with Hessia’s research strengths. The institutions of higher education in Hessia carry out research and teach in all major disciplines, achieving a high standard of excellence.
