Internationale Transfer und Alumni Projekte

Strengthening international relations

We implement and execute collaborative research projects in the research areas of our members, covering both basic and applied research. CBL draws on advanced theoretical and application-oriented knowledge among its members and partners, from such diverse fields as agriculture, forestry and agroforestry, development economics, ecology, biodiversity, landscape ecology, geography, nature conservation, hydrogeology and related social sciences, for the promotion of research and for capacity building to globally support sustainable food production and resource management, in the face of global change, climate change and food insecurity.

Current Projects

Frosch DAAD Alumni Programm Mexiko Im August 2024 und März 2025 finden in Mexico Alumni Seminare statt, in denen Agroforstsysteme und der Erhalt von Biodiversität thematisiert werden.

We worked with international partner institutions in the Global South, currently with a focus on South East Asia (1) to coordinate or participate in projects on the internationalization of curricula of Master Programs in centre-related topics and (2) to support staff and student exchange. The Alumni work of the CBL focuses its activities on development-related issues, with major areas of interest in research and education in

  • sustainable agriculture and forestry
  • biodiversity and tropical ecology
  • forest, soil and water management
  • science management and communication

To increase networking and cooperation in research and education with other development- related domains in Göttingen and research institutes worldwide, embedded in research networks of global importance, is the explicit goal of the centre.
