LEADS2018 – Berlin, Germany, 29-30 January 2018

Global societal challenges like achieving food security for all, decreasing social inequalities, preventing and overcoming violent conflict and maintaining biodiversity necessarily require strong inter-disciplinary and international research collaboration. Research at the interface of the environment and development is often hampered by traditional academic boundaries. New ideas and fresh approaches are required to understand such challenges and for research to help overcome them. Young researchers in particular can play a key role in doing so.

To address these exciting research challenges and to help overcome these structural barriers within academia, the five German research institutes ATB, GIGA, IGZ, ZALF and ZMT have established the Leibniz Environment and Development Symposium (LEADS). The aim of LEADS is to foster interdisciplinary and international research collaboration dealing with global societal challenges among early career researchers and senior scholars. As such LEADS also understands itself as a contribution by the German research community to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development by the United Nations.

The conference language will be English.

For further information, please visit http://www.igzev.de/leads2018 or send an email to leads2018@igzev.de.

 

The Symposium will start Monday, 29 January @ 12a.m.  and will be finished @ 5p.m. on Tuesday, January, 30th.

The Marie Sklodowska Curie – Projekt BestPass (Boosting Plant-Endophyte Stability, Compatibility and Performance across scales) had its midterm evaluation in September. From IGZ Prof Philipp Franken, Dr Rita Grosch, Dr Silke Ruppel, Dr Marina Korn and of course the Phd-students  Shubhangi Sharma and Vincenzo DeRocchis are involved. BestPass is coordinated by Prof David Collinge from Copenhagen University.

In the framework of this year´s 2nd Annual Meetings at Humboldt University in Berlin fa halfday public Colloquium with 4 invited Speakers took place, followed by a (successful) midterm Evaluation by the EU Project officer and an independent evaluator.

On day 3-5, a workshop was organized only for the PhD-students involved in this Project. They are from Germany, Greece, Italy, India, Austria, Portugal and Spain.  

It was an exciting and interesting Meeting. The next one will take place in Poland, in June 2018.

The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation
programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 676480

Auch dieses Jahr sind wir mit einem Stand bei der Langen Nacht der Wissenschaften in Berlin dabei.

Sie finden uns im Gebäude der Leibniz-Gemeinschaft im Herzen Berlins, Chausseestraße 111 (Mitte). Das IGZ präsentiert sich gemeinsam mit dem Forschungsverbund “Nachhaltige Lebensmittelproduktion und gesunde Ernährung” im Atrium.

Beginn: 17:00Uhr

Ende: Mitternacht

 

Das Pflanzliche Mikrobiom und seine Bedeutung für das Pflanzenwachstum

Pflanzen sind, wie alle anderen Lebewesen auch, durch Mikroorganismen (Bakterien, Pilze und Viren) in großer Vielfalt besiedelt. Dieses Mikrobiom der Pflanze bestimmt maßgeblich darüber, ob es der Pflanze gut geht und wie effektiv sie unter verschiedensten Umweltbedingungen wachsen kann.

Im Leibniz- Institut für Gemüse- und Zierpflanzenbau erforschen wir die Zusammensetzung des Mikrobioms und seine Funktion für die Ernährung und Gesunderhaltung der Pflanzen. Wir entdeckten eine bisher unbekannte Bakterienart, der wir den Namen „Kosakonia radicincitans“ gaben. Diese Bakterien fördern das Wachstum verschiedenster Pflanzenarten, erhöhen deren Erträge und verbessern sogar den Geschmack, zum Beispiel von Radieschen und Tomaten.

Wir geben hier einen Einblick in diese faszinierende Welt der mit bloßem Auge unsichtbaren, aber sehr aktiven und für unser aller Leben bedeutsamen Organismen.

Young Science Day 2017

 

  • science slams, PhD students and young researchers will give you insights into their projects and show you the different facets of horticultural science.
  • guided tour, you will see the institute´s facilities, greenhouses, and ongoing experiments.
  • career talks will highlight opportunities for young researchers outside the world of academia and give you examples of career opportunities outside the lab.

 

Last but not least, in a

Panel discussion*

we will discuss how horticultural science and modern plant breeding can contribute to the upcoming challenges in vegetable food production and security with our guests:

 

Harald Ebner, MdB (Bündnis 90/Die Grünen), and

Prof. Dr. Bernd Müller-Röber (University of Potsdam).
