Bernburger Innovationstage: NFDI4Biodiversity – Using data sustainably, understanding biodiversity better

Organisation: Anhalt University of Applied Sciences, Department of Agriculture, Ecotrophology and Landscape Development, Saxony-Anhalt State Institute for Agriculture and Horticulture, DLG e.V.

Energy crisis, war in Europe, rising prices - developments of the past year. Climate change, decline in biodiversity, environmental pollution - challenges recognised as consequences of human activity over decades. Against this backdrop, a secure supply of food, environmentally friendly production methods and adaptation to changing framework conditions need to be discussed. 

Agricultural science and agricultural technology are developing solutions and adaptation strategies under high pressure. Agroecology not only shows fields of action, but also innovative approaches to solutions. However, the accelerating pace of change and the urgency with which these solutions are needed raises questions about their practicality, their desirable and undesirable effects and, of course, their costs.

Presentations by scientists and practitioners from the fields of crop production, agricultural technology, digital technologies and nature conservation will contribute to answering these questions on 12 and 13 June 2023. Current developments in the field of digital technologies, biodiversity research and other results from research projects will be presented and discussed in terms of practicality, sustainability and rapid feasibility.

On day two, Mark Frenzel from the NFDI4Biodiversity partner Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) will present the consortium. The title of his presentation is "NFDI4Biodiversity: Using data sustainably – understanding biodiversity better".
