Agrotech Valley

Founding of the Agrotech Valley Forum e. V.

on 17 July 2019

Northwest Germany is one of the world’s most intensively farmed agricultural areas. Agricultural and nutritional science is undergoing a digital transformation and in response to this, representatives of universities and industrial companies in the agricultural technology sector have been cooperating within the scope of an agricultural technology network since early 2017.


In order to stabilise these networking activities, which have been funded by the Northwest Metropolitan Region since August 2018, the participating universities and companies decided to set up a joint association. In July 2019 together with the companies Amazonen-Werke, Claas E-Systems, DKE Data, Grimme Landmaschinenfabrik, Kotte Landtechnik, Maschinenfabrik Bernard Krone and Strautmann, Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences and the University of Osnabrück; the German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) and the Landkreis Osnabrück administrative district founded the “Agrotech Valley Forum e. V.” association.
