Inhalt Future demand in agricultural output is supposed to match the needs of 9-billion people with less input of resources. We will discuss current plant science research in the context of sustainability on the production side. Thematic areas of the seminar include:

Biotic interactions
• Nutrient management
• Plant breeding
• Global change
A special focus will be on research on agro-ecological systems and farming system research. Can we transform our agricultural practices and move behind existing paradigms to develop innovative and sustainable agriculture production systems? Where does current research indicate on directions for transformation of current practice and how can we assess and analyze them though research?

The course will be organized with two workshops (half days, 13:00 - 17:00) and an intensive, well-structured self-study/ group work phase in between the workshops. Online learning material in provided.

The seminar is set up as a blended-learning seminar, i.e. a combination of face-to-face meetings and self-organized learning with provided online learning material. The seminar comprises two workshop afternoons and an intensive, well-structured self-study/ group work phase in between the workshops. Students can earn 2 ECTS for successful completion of the seminar.
Lernziele Key objectives for the seminar are that (1) participants will be able to discuss issues of sustainability in the context of current plant science research topics (2) participants will be able to phrase their own visions for sustainability in plant sciences, their group work topic and their own MSc or PhD project.
