Leib­niz-Zen­trum für Agrar­land­schafts­for­schung e.V. - HR

The mis­sion of the Leib­niz Centre for Agri­cul­tural Land­scape Research (ZALF) as a nation­ally and inter­na­tion­ally act­ive research insti­tute is to deliver solu­tions for an eco­lo­gic­ally, eco­nom­ic­ally and socially sus­tain­able agri­cul­ture – together with soci­ety. ZALF is a mem­ber of the Leib­niz Asso­ci­ation and is loc­ated in Müncheberg (approx. 35 minutes by regional train from Ber­lin-Lichten­berg). It also main­tains a research sta­tion with fur­ther loc­a­tions in Dede­low and Pau­lin­enaue.

In the frame­work of the research pro­gram „Soils as Sus­tain­able Resource for the Bioeconomy - Bon­aRes“ launched by the Ger­man Fed­eral Min­istry of Edu­ca­tion and Research the coordin­at­ing pro­ject „Bon­aRes - Centre for Soil Research“ is fun­ded for a planned period of 9 years since 2015 ( Aims of this pro­ject are the pro­vi­sion of soil related data in stand­ard­ized form in an open repos­it­ory, the devel­op­ment of integ­rat­ive model tools to eval­u­ate land use options with regards to sus­tain­able devel­op­ment, and to develop a web-based portal for know­ledge-based options for farm­ing strategies and soil use man­age­ment. To face these chal­lenges, an inter­dis­cip­lin­ary group of sci­ent­ists has been estab­lished.
