University of Wageningen

There exists a longstanding relationship between the Faculty of Agriculture and the University of Wageningen (Netherlands). Joint research interests, very good personal contacts, and a short geographical distance provide a solid basis for the cooperation.

The core activities are concentrated on common study programs, initiatives that aim to develop study concepts, cooperation in PhD programs, and research cooperation.


Agricultural University of Warsaw (SGGW)

We have had a close collaboration with the Agricultural University of Warsaw for many years. At the Faculty of Agriculture, the cooperation was originally established mainly by Dr. Dr. h.c. Günther Steffen (applied agricultural business studies), who received an honorary doctorate in 1998 from the SGGW for his efforts in this cooperation.

The partnership between the SGGW and the Faculty of Agriculture was established already in the early 1970s and it is active to this day with numerous mutual visits and study and research stays, especially by young researchers.


Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology (TUAT)

The Faculty of Agriculture cooperates with the Faculty of Agriculture of the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology (TUAT).


Research Center Jülich

The networking between the Research Center Jülich and the University of Bonn was strengthened by the signing of the cooperation agreement in 2007. The Research Center Jülich is one of the most important cooperation partners of the Faculty of Agriculture.

The cooperation of the two institutions combines the specific excellences of a major research institution and a university to the benefit of both. The collaboration can be seen in the establishment of research networks like the Geoverbund ABC/J, or the BioSC, as well as in the multitude of joint appointments.


China Agricultural University (CAU)

Since many years, there is a tight collaboration with the colleagues of the China Agricultural University (CAU) in Beijing. In 2015, Prof. Dr. Yurui Sun has been awarded an honorary doctorate by the Faculty of Agriculture, in acknowledgement for his exceptional scientific and ideational merits.

The aims of the collaboration with the institute for agricultural engineering, currently supported by the DFG, are shown in ensiling success and the preferably long-lasting freshness after the opening of the silages.
