The Viikki Plant Science Centre (ViPS) is a virtual research environment on the Viikki campus of the University of Helsinki.
More than 300 researchers from 50 different research groups are part of the centre which integrates basic and applied plant science.

ViPS facilitates our understanding of fundamental processes in the biology of plants and translates them into practical benefits for society.

ViPS is guided by a board with members from the key research fields, as well as advisers and stakeholders representing the important players in the national life science sector.

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

Training of doctoral researchers is an important part of ViPS, and the centre actively participates and develops education in collaboration with doctoral programmes at the University of Helsinki.
