Alliance for science

Münster, beautiful and smart

There are three aspects that catch the eye upon one’s first visit to Münster: the beautiful old town, the host of bicycles, and all the young people. The image and the life in the city of science are influenced measurably by around 50,000 students. The University of Münster is steeped in tradition - but the future is being made in the lecture halls and research institutes, many of which are located in the heart of the city.



The Westphalian Wilhelms-University ranks among the major German universities. It is not only the paramount icon but also the city’s major employer, together with the university hospital. The Cluster of Excellence "Religion and Politics" is a prominent example for elite research at the Westphalian Wilhelms-University Münster.

Furthermore, the University of Applied Sciences Münster holds a key position in the fields of research and transfer, being the fourth largest advanced technical college in Germany, bundling a multitude of competences at its locations in Münster and Steinfurt.

The university scape of Münster is characterised by an extraordinary breadth. Beside the Westphalian Wilhelms-University and the University of Applied Sciences Münster, there are the following academies: Katholische Fachhochschule Nordrhein-Westfalen, Fachhochschule des Bundes für öffentliche Verwaltung, Fachhochschule für öffentliche Verwaltung Nordrhein-Westfalen, Kunstakademie Münster, Philosophisch-Theologische Hochschule, and the Deutsche Hochschule der Polizei.

Münster’s academies provide a wide range of subjects including numerous excellencies. New focuses supplement the traditional strong points of the academies in Münster - such as theology, medicine, mathematics, economy, and law. This is prominently exemplified by the Zentrum für interdisziplinäre Biowissenschaften (Centre for Interdisciplinary Biological Sciences), the Landeskompetenzzentrum für Informations-, Telekommunikations- und Medienrecht (State Competence Centre for Information, Telecommunication, and Media Law), but also by the subjects of international management and medical engineering of the University of Applied Sciences Münster.

Science is turned into economy in Münster's district of innovation:
In direct proximity to the scientific centre of the university, the university hospital, the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Biomedicine, and the University of Applied Sciences Münster lies the Science Park with the Technologiehof and the Center for Nanotechnology. Not only does cutting-edge research meet with ideal conditions here, but the companies based in Münster and the Münsterland also benefit from the concentrated innovative power - based on the transfer of knowledge as well as cooperation projects.

In Münster, science, business and the city are all pulling together. The alliance for science, a strategic network with representatives from business, science and the city, is at the centre of this. Excellencies are brought together and expertise is pooled together here in order to raise the profile of Münster as a city of science and lifestyle.

The Science Office in Münster Marketing is the central contact point for academies and scientific institutes in the city, aiming at strengthening Münster as an academic and scientific centre - one of the most important resources for the future of our city.
