Welcome to HIGRADE!
The "Helmholtz Interdisciplinary GRADuate School for Environmental Research (HIGRADE)" provides a coherent framework for qualifying new generations of internationally competitive doctoral researchers in the field of environmental science. Our aim is to prepare doctoral researchers at the UFZ for careers in a range of environmental fields, i.e. for taking over leading positions in research, management and policy, technology development, or consulting and education.

Provision of the ecosystem service of pollination in a changing world: oilseed rape for food and fuel In this project we will try to understand the interactions between agricultural practices and the ecosystem service pollination, to optimize yields, to conserve the diversity of pollinators and to ensure food security for the generations to come. The major output of the project should be the better integration of pollination as an agricultural input into agronomic practices.
