Science and Research

Kiel is a university of interconnecting and interactive academic cultures. We consistently apply inter-disciplinary approaches to address major, cross-cutting social topics such as climate change, health and human development. This has attracted a dramatic rise in third-party funding, while also leading to numerous publications on the relevant areas of research.

Researchmatrix

At Kiel University we actively promote individual and collaborative research. The strength and proven excellence of our four research foci lies in our co-operations with non-university institutions, our coordinated academic projects and the pooling of infrastructural platforms. Each focus bundles inter-disciplinary research across.
