The Center of Sustainability Transformation in Areas of Intensive Agriculture (trafo:agrar) at the Vechta site sees itself as a point of contact for all those who want to put ideas for a sustainable and future-oriented agricultural and food industry into practice.

As a team, we are active in a region rich in tradition, which is characterized by intensive agricultural and food management. Together with our network partners, we are committed to the sustainable development of intensive agricultural regions as a whole. We want to proactively transform the economic, ecological and social challenges into perspectives.

We network actors from science, economy, population as well as politics and administration in order to identify the urgent challenges and to develop options for action. In doing so, we always want to facilitate a solution-oriented dialogue.

As a team, we create an enabling space/framework for both focused, classical research and practice-oriented applied research. By involving different stakeholder groups from the beginning, we increase the acceptance for sustainable developments.

We also contribute to making the results of transformation research usable in practice (knowledge transfer). We coordinate offerings for lifelong learning, trans-institutional continuing education and the qualification of specialists and managers. In brief, we shorten the paths between theory and practice.
