COS Heidelberg buildingsIm Neuenheimer Feld 360

The building “Im Neuenheimer Feld 360” the second largest COS building and is situated in the Botanical Garden. On three floors it accommodates several of our more plant science oriented research groups as well as the MCTP core facility. Furthermore the building holds a lecture hall and several practical rooms for teaching as well as the plant culture facilities with greenhouses and environmental chambers.

Originating in the Fifties, INF 360 first accommodated the “Botanical Institute” of the University and belonged to the “Heidelberg Institute for Plant science” (HIP) in the first decade of the new century. It was integrated into COS Heidelberg with HIP in 2011. In recent years it was extensively refurbished and remodelled, a process that is still ongoing.
