Dr. Vinícius Pereira Guimarães, coordinator of Embrapa Labex Europe, visited ATB to get information about the institute's research focus and latest research approaches and to explore the possibilities of future research cooperation between the two institutions.

Besides a very constructive exchange with ATB scientists, the program also included a tour to the ATB Fieldlab for Digital Agricture in Marquardt and a visit to the site of the planned Leibniz Innovation Farm in Groß Kreutz. A tour through the research laboratories and pilot plants offered an insight into the research infrastructure on campus.

Embrapa (Empresa Brasileira de Pesquisa Agropecuária) is a Brazilian research institute that coordinates agricultural research at the national level. Embrapa Labex Europe, based in Montpellier, France, supports scientific collaboration between Embrapa and European research institutions in areas such as biotechnology, animal and plant health, automation and precision agriculture, and food safety.
