Vocational education and training

Demand-oriented, practical and modern education and training in the agricultural sector is one of the key prerequisites for ensuring that agricultural production is resource-conserving, adapted to the location and meets demand.

It can

  • promote the development of rural areas
  • ensure food security
  • reduce the (youth) unemployment rate
  • increase the competitiveness of agricultural production
  • counteract the effects of climate change.
