The recently established Kiel Plant Center (KPC) aims to promote plant research
at Kiel University and its partner institutes. Within the overarching priority research area
Kiel Life Science (KLS) the new network will provide a platform for scientific exchange and
the development of new research initiatives.

Plant sciences in Kiel comprise research groups from several faculties and institutes and
cover different fields of plant research, including molecular plant biology, plant ecology,
biotechnology, and crop production. A general focus of plant research in Kiel is plant health
and interactions of plants with their environment.
