The mission of the Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences (FALS) is to foster scientific and technological development in the field of agriculture. Modern food production demands environmentally friendy and sustainable practices, which result in quality food production. Along with automatization and reduction of physical input, the final aim is to produce healthy and safe food along the supply chain from farm to fork.
FALS conducts developmental, applicable and fundamental research independently and in collaboration with study groups from other institutions. The work is carried out through research groups and numerous independent research projects, which are conducted as international, fundamental, applicable and goal oriented research, as well as research intended for direct users. Our experts regularly publish their work in international scientific journals, at scientific congresses and symposiums. All this has strengthened FALS's international collaborations with eminent institutions from Europe and around the globe. The collaborations also include staff and student exchanges through the Erasmus+ programme.
Excellence and autonomy of researchers in the academic environment is of primary importance for us as it leads to the welfare of humanity. We believe that research activities and first hand experience of the faculty staff is a prerequisite for a successful education of students.
