Structure & People

The Leibniz ScienceCampus Mainz is a joint research venture between the Leibniz Institute's Römisch-Germanisches Zentralmuseum and the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz for interdisciplinary Byzantine research. It ties in with the "Byzantine Archaeology Mainz" (BAM) collaboration that ran from 2005 - 2011 and broadens and develops this partnership further.

The Leibniz ScienceCampus Mainz was founded on 1 June 2011 on the basis of a cooperation agreement between the Römisch-Germanisches Zentralmuseum and the Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz. The activities of the campus are financed by the partner institutions and third-party-funds. For the period 2015-2023 the basic funding is provided by the Leibniz Association.
