Leibniz Research Alliances

Leibniz Research Alliances are an instrument of internal networking. Within Leibniz Research Alliances Leibniz institutions work together in interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary teams to investigate topical issues of great relevance to science and society. They pursue the goal of bundling complementary competences of participating institutes and thus pave the way for particularly successful research projects with a high degree of radiance. They provide central contacts for politics and business, funding agencies, the media and civil society. Leibniz research alliances are open to cooperation with universities, other non-university research and infrastructure facilities, international research groups and partners from industry.

ATB has initiated one research alliance and is actively involved in three other research alliances of the Leibniz Association.

Here we would like to briefly introduce these alliances ...

Leibniz Research Alliance 'Sustainable food production and healthy nutrition'

The interdisciplinary Leibniz Research Alliance 'Sustainable Food Production and Healthy Nutrition' was initiated by ATB. End of 2020, its activities ended. The network combined the expertise of 14 Leibniz institutions from various disciplines in the fields of food production and nutrition and served as a common platform for partners conducting decentralised and independent research - from the molecular level to economic issues. Spokesperson of the network was ATB scientist Prof. Dr. Reiner Brunsch.

Leibniz-Forschungsverbund INFECTIONS

Leibniz Research Alliance 'INFECTIONS in an Urbanizing World - Humans, Animals, Environments" unites 18 Leibniz institutions and 3 external partners. It continues the successful work of the INFECTIONS'21 alliance. The research focus is on the spread of antimicrobial resistant microbes in an increasingly urbanised society. Through its highly interdisciplinary and collaborative research agenda, it aims to develop long-term synergies to advance current knowledge, contribute to the development of countermeasures and provide policy recommendations. Contact ATB: Prof. Dr. Thomas Amon

Leibniz Research Alliance 'Energy Transition'

The German energy system is undergoing the most radical change in its history. The nuclear power phase-out and ambitious climate protection targets call for a far greater share of renewable energy sources, a drastic increase of energy efficiency, and substantial energy savings. Besides technical innovations new forms of governance, improved regulations, original business models, and social innovations are equally crucial for success. Moreover, broad public consent is needed for an environmentally and socially sustainable transition. The Leibniz Research Alliance 'Energy Transition' addresses these challenges focusing on three key areas of conflict that arise from the transformation process: Centralized vs. decentralized systems, collective vs. individual interests, and global vs. local effects. Contact ATB: Dr. Philipp Grundmann
