Research in Oldenburg has applied itself to the wide ranging research field of energy for more than 30 years. This research includes science and engineering areas as well as information technology, meteorology and economics. These activities take place at the University of Oldenburg and at independent research institutions such as ForWind, NEXT ENERGY and OFFIS. The main focus of energy research in Oldenburg is the future of energy supply systems.
In order to structurally strengthen the interdisciplinary cooperation between the various Oldenburg research groups, the cross-faculty research network ENERiO, with over 25 participating research groups, has been established.
The scientific profile of the doctoral training is based on the interconnection between different scientific disciplines and a strong relation to other industry and scientific partners.
