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.
