Program areas

Our research for an integrated bioeconomic system  is organized in five program areas.
Within these program areas, parts of bioeconomic production systems are subject to analysis, development, modeling, evaluation, and process design.

Within the program areas, teams of international scientists from different disciplines work together to solve specific research tasks.

Diversified crop production

The program area is dedicated to the development of technology and processes for environmentally controlled, highly diversified agroecological production of plant biomass.

to the program
Individualized livestock production

Research focusses on technical solutions to improve animal welfare, barn climate and reduce emissions, as well as on the evaluation of animal husbandry systems.

to the program area
Healthy foods

Research covers the entire spectrum between primary production and consumption of fresh or minimally processed plant and animal products, including fruit, vegetables, cereals, milk, meat and insects.

to the program area
Multifunctional biomaterials

The focus is on the sustainable production of biomass in agriculture, agroforestry systems and paludiculture and the further processing of this biomass into biobased materials.

to the program area
Integrated residue management

The program area bundles research activities on biogas and on carbonized biomass such as biochar and humic substances to be fed back into the production cycle.
