Securing sufficient safe and high-quality food is a strategic interest not only in Central Europe but also globally. Besides, food production is one of the most important sectors of economy in the whole Mid-European area.

The main goal of this network is to increase the quality of studies at 17 partner institutions from 11 countries in the fields of food technology and biotechnology, food safety, and human nutrition by fostering internationalization through mobilities with particular emphasis on research-based learning. The network gradually grows by accepting new partners with complementary curricula. Our long-term collaboration resulted in the formation of new educational forms like summer school and joint double degree PhD study. Collaborative programs lead to intensive interactions among students and teachers belonging to different research groups on common projects and topics.

Agriculture and Environment in the 21st Century - @groen

Orientation Week of the Joint Master Programme

Agriculture as a business venture with ecological responsibilities, has to become a core driver from a fossil- towards a renewable resources-based economy. Core concept is the implementation of bioeconomy, the knowledge-based production and use of biological resources in all sectors.

Improving the quality of life and environment in Europe is one of the most important issues at the beginning of the 21st century. Recently, more and more emphasis has been placed on agriculture as a business venture with ecological ramifications. One upcoming target for agriculture is the implementation of a renewable resources-based economy, named Bioeconomy. Implementing this knowledge-based production and the use of biological resources for products, processes and services in all sectors is a key aspect for a sustainable future economy. The @groen cooperation, which was established in 1998, focuses on agriculture and environmental protection. The network fulfils this objective at several main areas: high quality agricultural production (in animal husbandry, plant growing, fishery and forestry), green and environmentally friendly technologies, environment conservation, natural resources management and utilization of advanced information and communication technologies. Through the benefits and opportunities offered by CEEPUS, the 21 partner universities can undertake low-cost cooperation, exchange professionals and consult in curricular areas to the safeguarding of their own interests.

What our scholars have to say
Prof. Stanisław Adamczak
Rector of Kielce University of Technology
We share our knowledge in the area of technical education with foreign academic teachers and scientists, and this cooperation makes research & development work more efficient. We can prepare better publications and dissertations, and publish them in respected foreign magazines.
Thanks to CEEPUS we also had the opportunity to start cooperations within other international programs.
Cristina Stefana Borzan, PhD
Exchange teacher in Bratislava
I had successful discussions with specialists from my research domain. My teaching experience was also improved by having classes with foreign students.
Dr. Gabriella Vöő
Exchange teacher in Olomouc
There was a large student turnout, the students were interested and they participated in the discussions. I had conversations with colleagues about academic and administrative matters and we also discussed possibilities for joint research projects in the future.
