Abraham Werner established the scientific study of mineralogy and geology. Also in Freiberg, Wilhelm Lampadius developed the principle of gas lighting for the European continent.

Facts & Figures
5,000 Students, 6 Faculties, 86 Professors and 2 Collaborative Research Centers. In 2013, Freiberg professors attracted 58.4 million euros in third party funds. This is clearly more than the amount the university receives for its basic budget to cover ongoing expenses.
