Organisation Profile

The Viikki Plant Science Centre (ViPS) is a virtual research environment on the Viikki campus of the University of Helsinki.
More than 260 researchers from 39 different research groups are part of the centre.

ViPS has high international visibility, with a stimulating high impact research environment. It integrates the basic and applied plant researchers on campus with a bioinformatic development strategy and encourages new collaborative projects.

ViPS is guided by a board with members from the key research fields, an international scientific advisory board and a local advisory board.

There are several infrastructures associated with ViPS and available to members for use in their research.

ViPS actively participates and develops education in collaboration with the Doctoral Programme in Plant Sciences, other relevant doctoral programmes and the faculties on campus for undergraduate and graduate training.
