Strategic initiatives


With our regional, national and international initiatives, we develop strategies in the field of bioeconomy, implement projects together with our partners and thus contribute to the realization of sustainable value creation and circular economy.

Plants and plant production play a very important role in the bioeconomy of the future because (i) they are central elements of production systems and determine inputs such as water, nutrients or energy efficiency; (ii) they provide renewable biomass for use as food or feed, as raw materials for chemicals, for direct use or for bioenergy; and (iii) they are essential elements in production systems for closing (nutrient) cycles, which are indispensable in the development of a sustainable bioeconomy.

Research Topics
