Justus Liebig University Gießen, Department of Agricultural Sciences, Nutritional Sciences and Environmental Management, Gießen, Germany
The Justus Liebig University is one of Germany’s top research universities featuring an extraordinarily broad range of subjects. Both rich in tradition and highly innovative, JLU is host to a number of projects which are beacons of German research.
In 1999 the former Faculty of Agriculture and Environmental Protection and the Faculty of Nutritional Sciences were verified to the new Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, Nutritional Sciences and Environmental Management. This provided the basis for a scientific view of the whole food chain - starting from primary production and effects on the environment via processing, quality control and distribution to the food consumer.
