With its research professorships, CATALPA offers the best conditions for excellent science.

Even though our scientists have a lot of room for research, our professorships are still anchored in a faculty with their teaching. They thus adhere to the principle of unity between research and teaching. At the same time, they offer similar conditions for science as leading research nations.

CATALPA professorships are one of the core structures of the Research Center. Financed by our own funds and of unlimited duration, they form permanent pillars for the work of the Center.
