PhD programme

PhD programme at Department of Agroecology

Agroecology deals with the interaction between soil, plants, animals and the environment in ecosystems for the production of food, feed and biomass. Our aim is to train and promote the next generation of scientists and technology developers in the field of agroecological science and technology at the highest scientific level in a truly interdisciplinary and international atmosphere.
