Agroscope, the Swiss federal research institute for the agri-food sector, is undergoing a reorganisation. Since 1 January 2014, Agroscope will run four institutes:
- Institute for Plant Production Sciences
- Institute for Sustainability Sciences
- Institute for Livestock Sciences
- Institute for Food Sciences
Since 2014 onwards, Agroscope’s research will be based on the following six thematic priorities representing the challenges currently faced by the agri-food sector: (1) Ecological intensification; (2) Safeguarding natural resources; (3) Challenge of climate change; (4) High-quality food; (5) Improved competitiveness; (6) Vital and attractive rural areas.
