LWC Phosphorforschung Rostock: Leibniz-ScienceCampus Phosphor Research Rostock

The Leibniz SciencCampus Phosphorus Research Rostock (ScienceCampus) is linking around 100 scientists of 5 Leibniz-Institutes and the University of Rostock, which do research on the essential element phosphorus. Since June 2019, the Science Campus is funded by the Leibniz Association with 1.1 Mio € for another 4 years. In the ScienceCampus scientists search in the following  research cluster: "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 the cross topic "V. Governance options for closed P cycles - the GAP 2020 revision".
