The DAAD Alumni eSpecial Project in the framework of BIOFACH eSpecial 2021 builds on two consecutive elements – (a) training seminars at German universities and (b) participation in the world’s leading trade fair for organic food BIOFACH eSpecial 2021. The main goal is to facilitate a better understanding of opportunities sustainable and organic food production can offer worldwide as well as in the countries of origin of the participating Germany alumni in the Global South. The seminars and trade fair participation are offered by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) in the framework of the programme Alumni Special Projects.
The training seminars that precede participation in the fair are organized and hosted respectively by the Department of Agricultural Engineering in the Tropics and Subtropics of the Faculty of Organic Agricultural Sciences of the University of Kassel / DITSL Witzenhausen and the Heidelberg Institute of Global Health (HIGH) at University Hospital Heidelberg.
The Programme of the International DAAD Alumni Seminar Biofach 2021 January/February 2021 is provided directly to the participants by the Department of Agricultural Engineering in the Tropics and Subtropics of the Faculty of Organic Agricultural Sciences of the University of Kassel / DITSL Witzenhausen.
Please contat the Alumni seminar team members for details.

We are using the Alumniportal Deutschland not only to hold the events, but also as the exclusive virtual space to meet and network. Here you will find all the information and links of the events (see programme above), get in touch with each other, exchange ideas, ask questions, receive relevant information and leverage your professional network.
Please register on the Alumniportal, if you have not done it yet and then join the group "Alumni eSpecial Project BIOFACH 2021". All participants from both Alumni Seminars are invited to join this group.
BIOFACH - World´s Leading Trade Fair for Organic Food
The trade fair duo BIOFACH and VIVANESS will take place in 2021 from 17 - 19 February 2021 completely digital. Organic is more than a label or certification: organic stands for quality and conviction – for the responsible use of nature’s resources. BIOFACH in the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg is the place where people share their passionate interest in organic food, get to know each other and exchange views, and this since 1990.
