Coordination and Management

In food4future (f4f), more than 10 partner institutions from science and industry work closely together. To ensure the smooth running of the joint project, the f4f office was established at the Leibniz Institute of Vegetable and Ornamental Crops (IGZ). It is responsible for the coordination of the research network and overarching management tasks.

These tasks include administrative tasks such as project monitoring and controlling or reporting, the organisation of events and status seminars, and above all communication.

This includes several levels:

  • Internal communication with partners and members of the food2innovation forum (advisory board)
  • Cooperation with the Central Coordination Office "Agricultural Systems of the Future" and the other seven consortia of the funding line
  • Expert information (including public relations, networking with projects and initiatives)

Social dialogue on the topic of future food is a particular concern of ours, which is why we have already developed and implemented a wide range of innovative formats in the course of the project.
