ARL – the Global Research Network

The ARL is an independent, non-partisan institution for the spatial sciences under public law and is based in Hanover.

As a Leibniz institution, it is funded jointly by the Federal Government and the federal states due to its supraregional significance and its work in the interest of national science policy.

The specific working method of the ARL, which is transdisciplinary and network-based, allows for close collaboration and a wide-ranging exchange of ideas and knowledge between members of the academic community and planning practitioners.
