Kiel Marine Science

Sino-German Cooperation

The Marine and Earth Sciences in Kiel have established strong relationships with universities and non-university research institutes in China, in particular, with the Ocean University of China (OUC) in Qingdao and the Ocean College of Zhejiang University in Hangzhou.

In 2011, the Center for Sino-German Cooperation in Marine Sciences (SGMS) was founded jointly by the Ocean University of China (OUC) in Qingdao, Kiel University (CAU), the Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel (GEOMAR), the University of Bremen and the Leibniz Center for Tropical Marine Ecology (ZMT). The establishment of the SGMS expands the Sino-German Initiative on Marine Sciences funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China (MOE) through which the partners have been cooperating closely since 2004.

The SGMS strives to expand cooperation between both countries in the areas of higher education, research and development. There are currently three SGMS offices: in Kiel, Bremen and Qingdao. The Key Laboratory of Physical Oceanography at the OUC hosts the SGMS head office in Qingdao.

Main activities of the SGMS include:
