Groningen Institute for Evolutionary Life Sciences

The Groningen Institute for Evolutionary Life Sciences is a research institute within the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences of the University of Groningen, located at the Linnaeusborg on the Zernike campus in the north of the city of Groningen. The institute is a merger of the former institutes CBN and CEES, which allows to bridge the gap in research and education between the mechanistic, ecological and evolutionary studies of biological processes, with a special focus on the adaptive potential of life. The institute coordinates the local Research School Ecology and Evolution (RSEE), participates in the interfaculty Research School of Behavioural and Cognitive Neurosciences (BCN) and is (joint) coordinator of five master programmes, the top programme Evolutionary Biology (embedded in the master programme Ecology and Evolution) and the Erasmus Mundus Master Programme in Evolutionary Biology (MEME).
