Key Profile Areas (KPAs)

The University of Cologne has established thematically focused Key Profile Areas with critical mass and impact that explore scientifically and socially relevant topics. The Key Profile Areas already demonstrate proven scientific excellence and form the core of the University of Cologne's research profile. They also benefit from strong networks and close cooperation with regional non-university institutions and partners from industry.
