No doubt - Chemistry offered by the University of Ulm is a fascinating science and a progressive future is unthinkable without it. With their help, new materials and active ingredients are developed in research laboratories that accompany our everyday life as seemingly invisible helpers.


We also find chemistry in reactions of substances in our living and inanimate world. The art of transferring what has been learned from nature into research inspires researchers time and again. Chemistry is full of perspectives, professional diversity and is an important part of the sustainable development of our social prosperity. Here we encounter energy generation, conversion and storage as fundamentally important chemical questions for current and future generations.
