Leib­niz-Zen­trum für Agrar­land­schafts­for­schung e.V. - HR

The mis­sion of the Leib­niz Centre for Agri­cul­tural Land­scape Research (ZALF) as a nation­ally and inter­na­tion­ally act­ive research insti­tute is to deliver solu­tions for an eco­lo­gic­ally, eco­nom­ic­ally and socially sus­tain­able agri­cul­ture – together with soci­ety. ZALF is a mem­ber of the Leib­niz Asso­ci­ation and is loc­ated in Müncheberg (approx. 35 minutes by regional train from Ber­lin-Lichten­berg). It also main­tains a research sta­tion with fur­ther loc­a­tions in Dede­low and Pau­lin­enaue.

FAIR­a­gro is a con­sor­tium in the National Research Data Infra­struc­ture (NFDI) in Ger­many. Aims and tasks of FAIR­a­gro com­prise the devel­op­ment of a net­worked research data man­age­ment for agrosys­tems research and the estab­lish­ment of an inter­op­er­able, scal­able, qual­ity-assured and user-friendly research data infra­struc­ture under con­sid­er­a­tion of the FAIR prin­ciples. FAIR­a­gro will make research data find­able (F), access­ible (A), inter­op­er­able (I), and reusable (R) by other research­ers. The Data Stew­ard Ser­vice Cen­ter (DSSC) is the cent­ral insti­tu­tion within FAIR­a­gro for coordin­at­ing data man­age­ment and anchor­ing it in the sci­entific com­munity. The DSSC organ­izes the con­tinu­ous exchange of know­ledge and exper­i­ence in the field of research data man­age­ment (RDM) with other insti­tu­tions, e.g. through train­ing, chan­nels user requests from the com­munity to the Data Stew­ards as des­ig­nated experts in the field of agri­cul­tural RDM.
