About our research

Our applied research is geared towards current challenges faced by the farming, forestry and food sectors. We develop practically viable and scientifically sound solutions meeting the individual needs of users in the private sector, administration and non-profit organisations. Our national and international networks allow us to collaborate with a highly diverse range of research partners.

Transdisciplinary knowledge

We have extensive knowledge in the three fields as well as specialised methodological skills in education. This allows us to integrate transdisciplinary and holistic approaches into problem-solving. Among others, our transdisciplinary topics include:

  • Value chains
  • Production systems
  • Sustainability
  • Societal change
  • Natural resource management and climate change
