Description

Dutch agriculture faces major sustainability challenges, particularly in terms of environmental impact, suitable workforce, and social acceptance. Current production systems can only be improved to a limited extent.

The goal of the SYNERGIA research programme (SYNERGIA stands for “SYstem change for New Ecology-based and Resource efficient Growth with high tech In Agriculture”) is to develop and integrate fundamental knowledge from the biological, technical, and social sciences for the next generation of sustainable agricultural systems, based on the new concept of “technology-4-ecology-based farming” (T4E-farming).
