Knowledge for success

Rural development - further education and training

As a recognized provider of training in rural development, we offer you a variety of advanced and further training measures, information events and further training courses, which are recognized within the framework of the ÖPUL program, with our diverse and comprehensive expert knowledge. Our experts cover a wide range of topics, from cereals and variety evaluation, plant health and plant nutrition, soil, agricultural inputs and their use for sustainable innovative management to animal health and food and feed safety.

The educational offer of our AGES Academy on Rural Development is still young and is constantly being expanded in cooperation with other educational providers and partners - first and foremost the Rural Training Institutes (LFIs).

In the past years, AGES field days could be implemented in presence as well as in an online format.

Bottom fan and bottom discs

Together with our cooperation partners, soil compartments and soil discs for farmers suitable for practical use as well as a soil compartment learning app have been implemented.

Education cluster Dialog with society

In 2017, 20 cooperation partners joined forces to form the "Dialogue with Society" education cluster on the initiative of the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Regional Development and Tourism (BMLRT). The common goal of the education cluster is to bring the topics of agriculture, environment and nutrition closer to society - in particular to educators, journalists and consumers. As AGES we are allowed to participate in several projects.

Here you can find all projects as well as information material on many topics.

Within the framework of the education cluster, the project "Landwirt|schaf(f)t|Wissen" was implemented. Through target group specific information and educational materials, a better understanding of agricultural production is to be created. Thus, teaching materials for primary and secondary level I as well as folders for consumers were realized.

Digitalization cluster

The core objective of the Digitalization Cluster is to make digitalization useful for Austrian farms. To this end, the most important players in the field of digitization in agriculture work together in the cluster. Through the intensive exchange of information, competencies are bundled and individual measures are optimally coordinated. In project II, new technical developments are to be made more visible to farmers. In further sub-projects, solutions for simplifying advice and farm management are to be developed (project III), the legal framework is to be analyzed and presented (project IV), and concepts for simplified assessment of environmental impacts (project V) are to be developed. AGES is involved in project III as well as project V.
