During this time it has constantly focused on ground-breaking research and knowledge transfer. It distinguishes itself from other research centers by its freedom of inquiry, the financially disinterested character of its fundamental research, its focus on education, and the fact that it encompasses virtually all academic disciplines within its walls.
