The new Matter to Life Master’s programs at Heidelberg University, Göttingen University, and Technical University of Munich (TUM) offer you a unique environment to study in an interdisciplinary setting with students of different scientific backgrounds. These Master’s programs are part of the new Max Planck School Matter to Life which supports students with a generous scholarship, annual week-long summer schools, and mentoring by experienced faculty members from the large Matter to Life network consisting of professors at Heidelberg University, Göttingen University, Technical University of Munich, RWTH Aachen University, Saarland University, Leibniz Institute for Interactive Materials at RWTH Aachen, the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ), the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS), and different Max Planck Institutes.

HITS, the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies, was established in 2010 by physicist and SAP co-founder Klaus Tschira (1940-2015) and the Klaus Tschira Foundation as a private, non-profit research institute. HITS conducts basic research in the natural, mathematical, and computer sciences. Major research directions include complex simulations across scales, making sense of data, and enabling science via computational research. Application areas range from molecular biology to astrophysics. An essential characteristic of the Institute is interdisciplinarity, implemented in numerous cross-group and cross-disciplinary projects. The base funding of HITS is provided by the Klaus Tschira Foundation.
