May 20, 2015

Another official visit in Kiel: precisely one week after Kiel University had the honour of welcoming the Israeli President Reuvin Rivlin, his Estonian counterpart, President Toomas Hendrik Ilves, visited the capital city of Schleswig-Holstein. He was accompanied, among others, by the Estonian Ambassador in Germany, Kaja Tael. The official visit, upon invitation by Federal President Joachim Gauck, was completely focussed on science, President Ilves’ visits to Kiel University took place at the Centre for Molecular Biosciences (ZMB).

University President Professor Lutz Kipp welcomed the official guest. On behalf of “Kiel Life Science”, Professor Thomas Bosch and Professor Philipp Rosenstiel informed President Ilves of the content and possibilities of the research in Life Sciences in Kiel via a presentation and a tour of the lab. “We as Life Scientists from Kiel look forward to a productive exchange with our Estonian colleagues", emphasized Bosch, spokesperson for the Kiel research focus "Kiel Life Science" and deputy managing director of the ZMB.

President Ilves and his delegation exchanged views with representatives of the university about the possibilities for strengthening German-Estonian university cooperation. The Estonian delegation was especially interested in an exchange in the field of Natural and Life Sciences, which has a particularly strong position at Kiel University with its interdisciplinary centre "Kiel Life Science". President Toomas Ilves corroborated the good relations between the Estonian universities and Kiel University: "Research in Natural Sciences and Life Sciences will be of increasing importance in scientific competition in the future. This also applies for our universities in Estonia. Thus, we greatly appreciate Kiel University as a strong partner and we are seeking to intensify scientific cooperation in this field.”
