OnderzoekGroningen Institute for Evolutionary Life SciencesResearch


Research in the Groningen Institute for Evolutionary Life Sciences is organised in six expertise groups and in three integrative themes. Our outreach activities are coordinated in two competence centres.

Expertise groups

Expertise groups are cooperative assemblies of research units with similar interests that commonly share support staff, facilities and sometimes teaching responsibilities. Expertise groups typically consist of four to eight core units and a number of associated units that participate in meetings and seminars on a regular basis.

Integrative topics

Integrative topics are specific research programmes within the three main domains defined in the FSE focal theme Adaptive Life. These projects will result in a range of applications to key questions at stake in the Sustainable Society and the Healthy Ageing societal priority areas of RUG, as well as boosting fundamental progress.
