Situated in Jena, Thuringia, the University of Jena is one of the oldest universities in Germany. Its full name is Friedrich Schiller University of Jena, after the poet Friedrich Schiller who served as a professer of philosophy.
It is a full university, though with particular expertise in technological areas related to optics, glass manufacture and biotechnology. In our team at the Otto Schott Institute, young researchers from about twenty nations are presently collaborating on the development of new materials for energy efficient building envelopes and sustainable living, information display, communication, and green chemistry.
With a primary focus on glasses, we strive to translate fundamental insights about the chemistry and the atomic structure of a material into everyday-products. From smart windows and containers to displays, touch panels and optical fiber, we advocate the current societal impact of glass materials.
