Founded in 1419, the University of Rostock is the oldest university in Northern Europe. Over its colorful 600-year history, the university has grown to become one of the leading schools in interdisciplinary scientific research.
Pope Martin V approved the building of the University of Rostock and 3 areas of study: law, medicine and philosophy. In 1433, Pope Eugenius IV approved a fourth area of study, theology. Today, the university offers over 70 different fields of study and places an emphasis on finding the relationships between these fields, connecting disciplines such as physics and the life sciences, oceanography and engineering, medicine and technology, and media and sociology.

The Life, Light & Matter line connects life science researchers with those in atomic, molecular and laser optics research to produce a new breed of technology. The Maritime Systems line works toward a plan for future civilizations, bringing together law, engineering, oceanography, economics, agriculture and others. The Aging of Individuals and Society line reimagines what it means to grow old in today’s society and seeks to combine medicine and technology in a novel way.
