Collaborative Research Projects

Involving the Faculty of Natural Sciences

The coordinated programmes of the German Research Foundation (DFG) fund collaborative research which is predominantly interdisciplinary in nature. Moreover, funding is also provided by the EU, the Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) and other special projects.

RTG 1798 „SIGNALING AT THE PLANT-SOIL INTERFACE”

Research topics dealt with in the RTG 1798

The GRK 1798 Research Training Group, which is funded by the German Research Foundation, is a research group for doctoral students who have chosen the plant sciences, geosciences or microbiology as their specialism.

The interdisciplinary projects address research topics relating to the interaction between plants and the soil, special emphasis being placed on the interactions and mutual physiological influences between the roots and the surrounding soil. This includes the question of how the (a)biotic soil induces processes in the root and whether these interactions are of a general nature. The question which then arises is how these interactions affect the metabolism of the plant as a whole.

The  GRK 1798 is sited on the Herrenhausen Campus and is part of the "Soil-Plant-Human Interactions" broad-based research initiative of Leibniz Universität Hannover.
