The project "Relaunch of the decentralized web presences at Leibniz Universität Hannover" ran until September 2021. The layout and concepts for the web presences were implemented as part of the TYPO3 web service. The TYPO3 Web Service is mandatory to all official websites with public impact on the university.

  • Service description

    The web service offers a service for the faculties, institutes and facilities of the Leibniz University Hannover (LUH) to create and maintain their websites. The web service is based on the content management system (CMS) TYPO3.

    The provided website corresponds to the corporate design of the LUH, contains interfaces to the campus management system and extensions for typical institute websites (e. g. managing of publications and research projects).

    Institute websites are applied to the central faculty website. Every faculty website has a faculty web officer. The faculty web officer supervises as head editor the central faculty website which includes the website of the faculty as well as all institutes and facilities. Futhermore, the faculty web officer is contact person and coordinator for the faculty's website.

    Every website has its own URL/domain name (usu. www.facilityabbreviation.uni-hannover.de). The editing of the website is done by the staff of the faculty, institutes or facilities.

    Project »Relaunch of decentral websites«

    As part of the project »Relaunch of decentral websites at the Leibniz University Hannover« the implementation of the new layout and concepts took place for all decentral facilities. That included the university websites of all faculties, institutes and facilities as well as projects and corporations.

    This project was led by LUIS TYPO3 Web Service in corporation with Communications and Marketing of the Leibniz University Hannover. The project ended in September 2021.

    The main goals of the project:

    • Implementation of the new corporate web design to all official websites with public impact on the Leibniz University Hannover.
    • A website layout that supports all end devices. Meaning the content of the website should be optimally usable on all devices (responsive web design).
    • Improvement of the user guidance by target groups and topic oriented presentation of the content.
    • Best possible accessibility of the web content.

    With the project »Relaunch of decentral websites« the web guidelines of the Leibniz University Hannover (www.webguidelines.uni-hannover.de) became binding for all official websites with public impact on the university. That means, that from now on all web presentations of the Leibniz University Hannover have to be created in the new corporate design.

Corporate web design

The corporate web design based on TYPO3 is binding for all official websites with public impact on the university.
