Research thrives on new ideas stimulated by exchange and cooperation. It is particularly useful when the results are communicated to the next generation, made public and put into practice. In order to carry out research efficiently, funding is needed which has to be requested from funding organisations by highly competitive applications. In order to strengthen the contribution of science to the fields of sustainable production, processing and marketing of food, FoodBerlin has a broad spectrum of activities in the following areas:

>More about the goals of Food Berlin

Innovative research to improve our nutritional systems is carried out at the interfaces between disciplines. This is why FoodBerlin initiates and supports interdisciplinary collaborative projects. Cooperation is also the basis for applying for third-party funding from research sponsors such as DFG, BMBF, BML or EU. As a network, we also create access to international funding programmes that are difficult for individual groups to access. Researchers and doctoral students and graduates usually work together in the projects.

Topics in which collaborative projects exist or are being developed:

  • Animal health, animal breeding and feeding
  • Intensive agricultural production systems
  • Food safety
  • Sustainable food systems in politics and society

The rapid development in the field of sustainable nutrition systems requires experts who know and can shape international trends and new concepts in the production, processing and marketing of food. FoodBerlin imparts this specialist knowledge. In addition to university teaching, the members of FoodBerlin offer students and doctoral candidates numerous opportunities for qualification in this field

The working groups organised in FoodBerlin (see list of members) offer a wide range of experience covering the entire food value chain, from primary production, processing and marketing to agricultural economics and consumer behaviour. We advise you on decisions, prepare expert opinions and offer training events >Offer for external experts

FoodBerlin aims to raise public awareness of the concerns of sustainable food systems. To this end, we hold scientific and public events and draw attention to the activities of other providers.
