Since 2003, LIKAT has been a member of the Leibniz Association. The Leibniz Association brings together more than 90 non-university research institutes, ranging from natural sciences, engineering and environmental sciences to economics, social sciences, spatial sciences and the humanities. What all Leibniz institutes have in common is their focus on socially relevant issues and application-oriented research.
Leibniz institutes maintain close national and international cooperation with industry and universities, e.g. in the form of Leibniz Science Campuses.
The Leibniz Association is a voluntarily founded association that assumes tasks across institutes and, for example, represents common interests in public.
The institutes receive basic funding from the federal and state governments; as a rule, 50 % of the funding comes from the federal government and 50 % from the states.
