University of Cologne - Institute of Botany, Germany PP

The University of Cologne with its seven faculties offers students an enormous variety in choice and combination of courses and subjects. For a number of years now, the university has been endeavouring to take into account the radical political and technological changes which are occurring by means of expanding and developing new main inter-faculty research sectors. In addition to the biological sciences, these primarily include environmental and space research, African research, informatics, modern Sinology, the regional sciences of Latin America and European research. In 1995, in conjunction with the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Science, the Faculty of Medicine founded the "Cologne University Centre of Molecular-Biological Medicine". Together with the Faculty of Economics and Social Science, the Faculty of Medicine is currently establishing the "Cologne University Institute of Health Economics, Medicine and Society".

The Institute of Botany is proposing participation in cooperation with the Center of Applied Computer Science of the University of Cologne.
