Institute of Agricultural and Urban Ecological Projects at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (IASP)

Research and Development for a Green Future

The Institute of Agricultural and Urban Ecological Projects at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (IASP) combines university research with practical application of results. We implement innovative projects in science, research and development in the fields of agricultural and urban ecology as well as in human nutrition. Our goal is to quickly transfer new products and methods, which have been developed jointly with our customers into business, communal and corporate practice. In addition, we offer manifold services, e.g. scientific studies, laboratory testing, experimentation and consultation. The non-profit Association for the Promotion of Agricultural and Urban Ecological Projects (A.S.P.) is the legitimate body and is financially responsible of our associated research institute, founded in 1996.

Our institute consists of two departments:

The Department of Biogene Resources focuses its research on the production and the material and energetic utilization of biogene resources. Presently, research on the optimization of the generation of biogas has come to the fore. An experimental station of 15 hectares, situated at Berge (Havelland district), compliments the department’s structure. Another focus is directed towards technical vegetation systems in urban areas. The department has become a Centre of Expertise in the field of planting vegetation between the tracks (“green tracks”) and is also engaged in research regarding ecological building and urban ecology.
The Department of Food Technology carries out research and development projects in the field of food production from primary agricultural production to processing and marketing. We focus on innovations in food technology by using agricultural and horticultural products and processing them to receive healthy, high-quality and safe food. For these development techniques we use our own laboratory facilities. Research in the field of agricultural animal husbandry is mainly focused on animal monitoring and animal nutrition in order to improve animal health.
