Scientists from Kiel Marine Science collaborate beyond the boundaries of their disciplines and faculties, through participating in overarching research programmes such as special research areas promoted by DFG and projects of the German Alliance for Marine Research (DAM) or multidisciplinary associations. Through their projects, they promote and develop the profile of inter- and transdisciplinary marine scientific research at Kiel University.
Kiel Marine Science (KMS) is connected with regional, national, and international academic and science policy networks. In addition, KMS includes platforms such as the Center for Ocean and Society (CeOS), which implements transdisciplinary research and technical infrastructure.
Under the umbrella of Kiel Marine Science (KMS), offers for the promotion of young scientists, ranging from interdisciplinary and international programmes for students to measures for career development, are designed and implemented with a focus on Master's students, doctoral students and postdocs.
