The University of Technology (TU) is one of eleven universities in Germany to be named a University of Excellence, which provided Dresden with a lot of attention in 2012. However, the city had already enjoyed a reputation as a city of scientific research for many years.
Institutes run by all the four major German research organizations can be found in Dresden. This means that both basic and practice-oriented research is carried out within an extremely compact area; one which offers both a highly capable infrastructure and large-scale devices. The focus is on the natural sciences and technology. Some 4,000 people work in non-university research.
