The Green Gate to the World

Green – this is what a SITE OF THE FUTURE in Saxony-Anhalt looks like: Green Gate Gatersleben – The Plant Biotech Centre is the initiative by all companies and institutions of plant biotechnology and the public authorities on the Biotech Campus in Gatersleben.

The site is located in one of the most fertile areas of Germany, in a historical and current centre of plant breeding, and is now the centre of excellence for plant biotechnology in Germany. The starting point is the Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research (IPK) with the central federal ex-situ gene bank for agricultural and horticultural crops. The various actors of Green Gate Gatersleben offer commissioned research and other services for biotechnological companies and enterprises from the agricultural, pharmaceutical and chemical industry.
