Kick-off meeting of Leibniz Graduate School LandPaKT

29th October 2013: Official kick-off meeting of the Leibniz Graduate School LandPaKT in Berlin. LandPaKT (Agricultural techniques: potentials and costs of greenhouse gas mitigation) is a joint project of ATB and the Agricultural-Horticultural Faculty of the Humboldt University Berlin (AHF).

Participation is free of charge.

Exploiting the substantial greenhouse gas mitigation potentials from agriculture requires viable measures on the farm level. In the graduate school LandPaKT, seven PhD students will analyze the mitigation potentials and costs systematically and merge them on the farm level. With the re-wetting of organic soils, the carbon sequestration in mineral soils depending on agricultural activities and the livestock husbandry, the most important sectors of agriculture are included in the analyses. With modelling and simulation approaches, single as well as combined measures are analyzed with regard to their overall effect. Recommendations for the most-promising measures on the farm level are deduced.

With LandPaKT, the Leibniz Institute for Agricultural Engineering (ATB) and the Agricultural-Horticultural faculty of the Humboldt University Berlin (AHF) combine their competences and offer a structured, interdisciplinary environment for the PhD students. The PhD candidates can profit from regularly and qualified support, have access to several training opportunities to improve those skills which are indispensable for a successful scientific career.

The graduate school LandPaKT is funded by the Leibniz-Association in the context of the "Joint Initiative for Research and Innovation” of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
