New video: A spotlight on the young researchers in the TILMAN-ORG project

Maike Krauss

FiBL staff member Maike Krauss, who was interviewed.

(July 04, 2014) 

Within the TILMAN-ORG project  on reduced tillage systems, four PhD theses and several master theses are being carried out. The TILMAN-ORG project is coordinated by FiBL and funded under the ERA-Net project CORE Organic II*.

TILMAN-ORG offered an excellent platform to exchange between junior and senior researchers. For example, PhD students and young scientists from Helmholtz-Zentrum Munich, the Lipmann Institute in Luxembourg, and FiBL Switzerland worked closely together in the research field of greenhouse gas emissions.

Building a European network, visiting partner institutions, and understanding more how European projects are working, are some of the positive experiences mentioned by young researchers in this video produced by Thomas Alföldi.

* The project TILMAN-ORG (Reduced tillage and green manures for sustainable organic cropping systems) is funded by the CORE Organic II Funding Bodies, being partners of the FP7 ERA-Net project CORE Organic II (www.coreorganic2.org).
