On 22nd June 2017 the Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research celebrated its 25th Anniversary together with around 250 guests from research, politics and the professional world.  During midmorning, a scientific symposium took place on the campus in Müncheberg.  Additionally, projects, laboratories and technology were presented as part of a campus tour. In the afternoon, co-workers, sponsors and partners with the ZALF executive board and guests viewed a revue of 25 years of agricultural landscape research during the festive opening ceremony in the ZALF greenhouse and looked together into the future of the research site.

At 10 a.m. Professor Dr. Frank Ewert, ZALF Scientific Director, and Carsten Feller, Department Head of Science and Research at the Ministry for Science, Research and Culture of Brandenburg, opened the gala for the 25th Anniversary celebration of the Müncheberg Research centres. The day began with a scientific symposium on the topic “Agricultural landscape research in the context of the Sustainability Goals” in addition to a poster session. Collectively with the participants it was discussed how research can contribute to global challenges in the areas of climate, nutrition, land use and water as well as innovations.

Subsequently, activities continued outside of the lecture halls on the ZALF campus: At 11 stands, ZALF scientists presented their research projects, laboratories and technology and highlighted solutions to climate change questions, sustainable land use, Landscape 4.0 as well as food and nutrition security. The Mosquito Atlas, the climate chambers and a stand on the history of the research site Müncheberg attracted interest as well.

In the afternoon, Cornelia Rosenberg, Administrative Director, and Professor Frank Ewert, Scientific Director, welcomed the guests of the celebrating opening ceremony in the ZALF greenhouses as special event location.
