Area 3 (‘Society’): Improve on-farm practices to enhance consumer acceptability and address societal challenges associated with animal welfare, product quality and safety, biodiversity and provision of ecosystem services
We can offer to incorporate the aspect of work Organisation, work Environment, health and safety, etc. into concepts of sustainable animal production. The rates of injuries and accidents among farm workers is high, and in order to improve animal production practices, the work place Needs to be focussed on as well.
The Leibniz Institute for Agricultural Engineering Potsdam-Bornim is a European center of agricultural engineering research at the nexus between biological and technical systems. Our research targets a knowledge-based bioeconomy. We are developing highly innovative and efficient technologies for the use of natural resources in agricultural production systems - from basic research to application. We thus contribute to the nutrition of humans and animals, to a sustainable use of biomass, and to protecting of climate and Environment.
