Aarhus University Seal / Aarhus Universitets segl


The Department of Agroecology has a long tradition of close collaboration with business and business organisations. In a partnership we can develop research-based knowledge and innovative solutions that at the end of the day can strengthen your company's competitiveness and profitability.

Our target is that new research results are applied in real life and underpin decisions taken by farming, authorities and society. In this way we contribute to development of new products and technologies that can promote sustainable and environmentally friendly production of food, feed and energy.

Is your business interested in the possibilities for collaborating with the Department of Agroecology? Then please contact either Department Head Erik Steen Kristensen or Senior Researcher Birte Boelt.
