Opening of Land-CRAFT - Center for Landscape Research in Sustainable Agricultural Futures
The green transformation of agriculture is absolutely crucial for the climate and the environment, but we need basic and detailed knowledge if we are to achieve the goals of the transformation. That is why Aarhus University and the University of Copenhagen are proud to be able to jointly open the pioneer center "Center for Landscape Research in Sustainable Agricultural Futures" - daily referred to as Land-CRAFT.
Info about event
AU Viborg - Research Centre Foulum, Blichers Allé 20,
Five of Denmark's largest foundations have joined forces to finance the center. The five foundations, the Danish National Research Foundation, the Carlsberg Foundation, the Novo Nordisk Foundation, the Lundbeck Foundation and the VILLUM Foundation, have allocated a total of DKK 240 million to the Land-CRAFT initiative.
The pioneer center will be led by the internationally leading researcher in the field, professor dr. Klaus Butterbach-Bahl, who comes to Denmark from the Karlsruhe Institut für Technologie. The aim of the center is to create the scientific basis for the transformation of the food system and the reduction of agriculture's climate and environmental footprint through e.g. scalable measurements of nutrient and greenhouse gas emissions in the landscapes and development of tools to identify and implement concrete adaptation strategies.
The center opens on 1 June at an event held in AU Viborg - Forskningscenter Foulum.
