Conference 'On the Move to Sustainable Agriculture on the Balkan Peninsula', Prishtina (Kosovo), 21.-23.9.2016

 

Short project description:

The project is funded in the frame of the DAAD Programme "Quality Network Biodiversity" that aims to protect and explore biodiversity. The first main aim of the project is the improvement of research and teaching on the phytodiversity (agricultural biodiversity and associated biodiversity of plants) of the Balkan Peninsula in the context of sustainable agriculture. Key topics of the project are

  • Crop Production and Protection
  • Viticulture
  • Plant Breeding and Genetic Resources
  • Ecotoxicology
  • Vegetation Ecology, Weed Ecology, Landscape Ecology and Landscape Planning
  • Environmental Economy (Ecosystem Services).

The second aim of the project is to support the development of a joint Master Programme "Sustainable Resources Management" at Prishtina University (Kosovo) and the Agricultural University Tirana (Albania). The project, moreover, provides a platform to prepare joint research projects. The focus of BioAgBal is on capacity building at Prishtina University. In 2012, Giessen University signed a cooperation agreement with Prishtina University and, since 2014, this cooperation gets funding in the frame of the DAAD Eastern Partnerships Programme.
