Company profile

Kiel University, with its 26.000 students, is Schleswig-Holstein's state university. As the epicentre of top-level research in the northernmost federal state, it attracts renowned researchers and the next generation of scientists, who mutually inspire each other here.

Interdisciplinary research and teaching in eight faculties and in the four research foci - marine science, life science, nano science, cultural change - are Kiel University's international trademarks. This is where technology and medicine, law and natural sciences, economics and agricultural sciences, as well as philosophy and theology come together in joint projects and research groups.

Kiel Marine Science

The world's oceans play a key role in the human race's position on earth. They control the climate, provide food and raw materials, are global means of transport and are increasingly used for energy production. There must be an improvement in coordinating their use and protection in the future. This more


Kiel Nano, Surface & Interface Science

Tiny details with an enormous effect: On its stand the research focus "Nanosciences and surface research" KiNSIS at CAU is showing how wide application opportunities are created for industry from accurate cutting-edge research. Selected examples from the laboratories in Kiel will make research on a nano more


Kiel Life Science

The research focus Kiel Life Science (KLS) links research in agricultural and nutritional sciences, natural sciences and medicine at Kiel University. More than half a dozen high quality bundled research projects are combined under its umbrella, with the "Inflammation at boundary layers" cluster of excellence more


Social, Environmental Cultural Change

The research focus SECC (Social, Environmental Cultural Change) is involved with two exhibits at the "Manipulated landscapes - 10,000 years of change" exhibition in the CAU presentation at the Hanover trade fair. One of the exhibits concerns investigations into the domestication of pigs using old DNA, more


(im)possible metal compounds

Bonding metals that normally cannot be bonded: a research team of material scientists at Kiel University has discovered a method in which different metals can permanently be joined with nearly all other materials. Bonding aluminium & silicon, titanium & silicon or aluminium & copper is now possible without more

Thermal probe and plasma jet

Plasma-assisted surface processes play an important role in industry. It is essential to know the energy input to the surfaces to be treated. A procedure for measuring these energy flows is by calorimetric probes, also called thermal probes. The spectrum of applications ranges from activating polymer more


Observation systems for the ocean

Observations using modern marine technological instruments are essential for understanding changes in the ocean. The exhibit »Observation Systems for the Ocean« is a gesture-controlled, multimedia exhibition object. It was developed jointly by the Cluster of Excellence »The Future Ocean« and the Muthesius more


Seabirds for coastal research

For marine and coastal researchers the behaviour of seabirds is an important indicator of changes in the marine environment. Equipped with tracking devices on their feathers, seabirds provide important data from which researchers can draw conclusions about the effects of offshore wind farms in the northern more


3D reconstruction in the deep sea

The further marine researchers advance into the deep sea, the more they struggle with enormous water pressure. Pictures from the depths of the oceans therefore require elaborate camera technology. Researchers from Kiel's Faculty of Engineering and the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel have more


eHealth App

Perspective microbiome

The microbiome comprises all the bacteria living on and in a human being. This could in future be measured quantitatively and qualitatively. Consequently, there is a need for a system which periodically records and checks the microbial composition of each individual during the course of their life. This more

Breakthrough in materials science

Joining what does not belong together: Material scientists from Kiel University have found a way to join metals with nearly all materials. This worldwide new method was presented today at Hannover Messe, the world’s leading industrial show. It is based on using an electro-chemical etching process, in which the uppermost layer of a metal is roughened on a micrometer scale in a tightly-controlled manner without affecting the mechanical stability of the metals or changing its characteristics. Through this “nan... read more
