Podium discussion "Excellence4"


Quadruple cutting-edge research from Kiel: representatives from Kiel University’s priority research areas in life science, nano science, marine science and cultural change will meet on Tuesday, April 25, 3:30 p.m., at Hannover Messe. Collectively, they are demonstrating Kiel’s path of cutting-edge research at the CAU booth in Hall 2, "Research & Technology". "Since its foundation in 1665 Kiel University has been developing into a university of interconnecting and interactive academic cultures. Building on its longstanding partnerships with non-university research institutions, Kiel University was able to focus and refine its research profile. Four priority research areas were formally selected and established in 2008. They combine scientific excellence of the different faculties, thereby enabling dynamic interfaces between natural, social and technical sciences as well as humanities", Professor Lutz Kipp explains Kiel University's strategy for the excellence initiative of the german federal and state governments.

At Hannover Messe, Kipp will discuss aspects which will become increasingly important for the science location of Kiel and North Germany in the future, with the representatives of the university's research foci: Professor Rainer Adelung (Kiel Nano, Surface and Interface Science), Professor Thomas Bosch (Kiel Life Science), Professor Lutz Käppel (Societal, Environmental and Cultural Change) and Professor Martin Visbeck (Kiel Marine Science). They will address issues about interdisciplinary cooperation, Big Data and digitalisation, or the social significance of research results. Visitors of Hannover Messe get a free entrance to the podium discussion.
