Leibniz Institute for Agricultural Engineering and Bioeconomy (ATB)

Our mission

The Leibniz Institute for Agricultural Engineering and Bioeconomy as a nationally and internationally acting institute is researching at the interface of biological and technical systems. 
Our research is aimed at sustainable intensification. We analyze, model and evaluate bio-economic production systems. We develop and integrate new technologies and management strategies for a knowledge-based, site-specific production of biomass, and its use for food, as biobased materials and fuels - from basic research to application. 
Thus we are contributing to food security, animal welfare, the holistic use of biomass, and to protect the climate and environment. [more]

Research is organized within three programs reflecting the interdisciplinary nature and the systemic approach of our research:
