At the beginning of the Leibniz ScienceCampus Phosphorus Research Rostock ('P-Campus'), interdisciplinary research on phosphorus was being carried out in three research clusters and one cross-sectional theme.
With the start of a new, second funding period of the P-Campus, the alignment of the research clusters was changed in part (Cluster I, II, III) and new research foci (Cluster IV, V) were defined. The earlier cross-cutting theme on phosphorus analysis methods has been integrated into all research clusters.
The P-Campus Phosphorus Research is now divided into five areas of research (clusters):
- "I. Phosphorus in the environment – P pools and mobilization potential in lowlands and coastal regions"
- "II. Sufficiency and efficiency of P utilisation, P recycling - Agricultural P Recycling Options"
- "III. Phosphorus in synthesis and catalysis"
- "IV. Molecular Biology of Phosphorus - The central Role of P in Signaling and Metabolism from Cells to Ecosystems"
- and as a cross-cutting activity "V. Governance options for closed P cycles - the GAP 2020 revision"
Phosphorus Graduate School (PGS)
The Phosphorus Graduate School (PGS), funded by the Leibniz Association and the partner institutions of the ScienceCampus, comprises 11 (first period) respectively 14 (second period) thematically affiliated individual projects.
