Agroecology is a branch of science that deals with the interactions between soils, plants, animals, humans and the environment within ecological systems created for the production of food.
Our aim is to train and promote the next generation of researchers, scholars, and technology developers within soil and environmental sciences and technology at the highest scientific level in a truly inter-disciplinary and international atmosphere. The programme embraces research education within the fields of:
A PhD education at Agroecology gives access to e.g., state-of-the-art laboratories, GIS-laboratories, greenhouses, the largest semifield and lysimeter facilities in Europe, and 1,300 hectares of farmland for experiments.
PhD students enrolled in the Agroecology programme will have their working location at either AU-Foulum, (close to Viborg) or at AU-Flakkebjerg (close to Slagelse). Students are welcome to spend shorter or longer periods of their study by one of the partners in our world-wide network.
