The Kolleg

The Lichtenberg-Kolleg is Göttingen’s Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities and Social Sciences. Named after one of the most important and versatile representatives of the Göttingen Enlightenment, Georg Christoph Lichtenberg, the Kolleg is an international and interdisciplinary research institute and a meeting place for a rich variety of academic cultures.

One of our principal aims is to promote interdisciplinary research projects at the University of Göttingen by offering the opportunity to cooperate with international research groups and fellows in order to enhance the international quality of Göttingen research in the Humanities and Social Sciences.

Update (23.12.2020):  The University of Göttingen has unanimously decided to terminate the Kolleg as of 30 September 2021.
