Sustainable Innovations in Agricultural Construction

Start Date: 01 June 2015

End Date: 31 May 2018

Location: Germany


The process of intensive planning is based on assessment criteria and sub-criteria for sustainable animal housing systems, which were only applied in an elective module in the department of agricultural studies at the University of Applied Science Kiel. Novel ideas for animal housing systems should be assessed in practice to ecological, economic and social sustainability already during the planning phase.

The aim of the OG ' InnoBau ' is to support sustainable innovation in agricultural construction with a new, systematic decision-making process. For this, the group develop and test with participating companies from Schleswig-Holstein, Germany, a tool for a systematic planning management, which is suitable for practice.
