The Technical University of Clausthal is a strong research university with excellent national and international networks. It demonstrates this through a high level of third-party funding and a diverse range of successful regional, national, and global collaborations with universities, non-university research institutions, and companies. The approximately 80 professors, 4,000 students, and approximately 1,100 employees enjoy short distances, personal contact, and the varied landscape of the Upper Harz in the heart of the Harz Mountains UNESCO World Heritage Site. The degree programs at TU Clausthal are consistently ranked among the top in the CHE ranking. The TU Clausthal lives internationality, with approximately 40% of its students coming from more than 100 countries. A high level of practical relevance, outstanding student support, and societal involvement, in addition to this cosmopolitan attitude, are important building blocks in the university's future concept. There are three faculties, 34 institutes, and six interdisciplinary scientific centers at TU Clausthal. The TU has two locations: the energy campus in Goslar and the "Drilling Simulator Celle - German Center for High-Performance Drilling Technology and Automation" in Celle, in addition to the main campus in Clausthal-Zellerfeld. The circular economy's holistic approach addresses not only technical but also behavioral and economic issues. The three dimensions of sustainability - environment, society, and economy - are critical for realizing the energy and raw material transitions, as well as the necessary social transformations. To that end, social acceptance of the available technical solutions and sustainable business models is critical. This aspect is actively included in the TU Clausthal's research and transfer processes, as well as in its teaching.
