Feeding the World Sustainably: Seufert awarded Robert Bosch Junior Professorship 2021

Related GLP Member: Verena Seufert

Verena Seufert’s research focuses on how sustainable agriculture can help global food production become both more environmentally and socially responsible. “We need to find sustainable ways of producing food, so that we can feed each and every person on this planet in the long term,” explains Seufert.

Replicating local best practices in other regions

The Junior Professor will focus on regions in India and Mexico that manage to achieve strong agricultural yields despite climatic fluctuations – all without compromising biodiversity or depleting natural resources. The aim is to be able to replicate lessons learned from successful local systems in other regions or contexts, thereby playing a role in steering global agricultural food production toward greater sustainability.
