Leibniz Institute for Resilience Research (LIR)

The Leibniz Institute for Resilience Research (LIR) is a publicly funded extra-university research institute in the Leibniz Association whose mission is to investigate resilience – the maintenance or quick recovery of mental health during or following adversity. The main objectives of the LIR are to understand resilience mechanisms from a neuroscientific and psychosocial point of view, to develop appropriate interventions to promote resilience, and to work towards generating resilience-friendly living and working environments. The LIR is interdisciplinary, bringing together biologists, human neuroscientists, psychologists, and clinicians. It is the first centre of its kind in Europe.
