What visions can guide them there? Representatives of the BMBF (Federal Ministry of Education and Research) funding measure "Agricultural Systems of the Future" discussed these questions at the online workshop "Mapping Futures" on Thursday 28 January 2021.

The Coordination Office, hosted by Leibniz Institute of Vegetable and Ornamental Crops (IGZ) in Großbeeren and by Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF), carried out the online workshop together with the Institute for Space & Energy (Institut Raum & Energie) and opened new perspectives.

They addressed an increased collaboration of agricultural- and food policy with regional circular economy, as well as the development of new networks between consumers and producers. In vivid small-group discussions, the participants aimed for ways to link different future visions in order to develop a joint vision approach and to initial elements for an implementation roadmap.

In a next step, the Coordination Office compiles the findings and develops a joint vision for the “Agricultural Systems of the Future”.
