TU Dresden occupies top ranking among the 'World's Most Influential Scientific Minds'

January 25, 2016

TU Dresden is listed with five designations and thus, represents one of the leading German universities among the "World's Most Influential Scientific Minds".

TU Dresden's Highly Cited and therefore most influential scientists are: Prof. Karl Leo from the Institute of Applied Photo Physics (IAPP) in the field of Material Sciences, Dr. Michael Kuhn from BIOTEC in the field of Biology and Biochemistry, Prof. Hans-Ulrich Wittchen from the School of Science in the field of Psychology, Prof. Karsten Kalbitz from the professorship of soil resources and land use in the field of Agricultural Sciences and Prof. Jürgen Rehm in the field of Social Sciences.

„Being on this list is a great recognition of our work -- it shows that our research on organic semiconductors is one of the leading research projects worldwide and that it is internationally acknowledged. This would not be possible without the great commitment of my colleagues and the generous support of the TU Dresden and our sponsors," says Prof. Karl Leo about his designation.

This top ranking represents the international esteem and recognition of Dresden's researchers and their work. TU Dresden is among the eleven "Universities of Excellence" in Germany and is particularly recognized for its strength in research. With its close cooperation of teaching and research, TU Dresden is continuously strengthening its national and international top position.
