About us

The Bayreuth Centre for Ecology and Environmental Research is a research centre of the University of Bayreuth founded in 2004. It bundles the competencies of about 30 working groups in the biosciences and geosciences, supports interdisciplinary research through central facilities and services and improves knowledge transfer. The BayCEER has about 80 members and is led by a five-member steering committee.

2019: 15 years in retrospect

Officially "watered" at the opening ceremony in June 2004, in the 15 years since then BayCEER has developed well. A time-lapse retrospective is presented in the BayCEER-timeline 2004-2019.

From macro- to microplastics

The BayCEER can from 2004 is still in use (Photo: Essbare Stadt Bayreuth). How littered plastics decompose and impact the environment, is analysed by the Collaborative Research Center Microplastics.
