Research Objectives

The Mountain Agriculture Research Unit (“Forschungszentrum Berglandwirtschaft“) is the focal point of agricultural research at the University of Innsbruck. It provides a thematic forum for scientists from different backgrounds, stimulates agricultural research and fosters cooperation among groups. Moreover, the unit serves as an interface between governmental and research-based institutions. Through funds from the regional government of Tyrol (“Land Tirol”), the Mountain Agriculture Research Unit supports research projects and scientific meetings which deal with agricultural topics in a yearly and competitive call for projects.
