FISA: Agricultural research projects at a glance

15.03.2012
The Information System for Agriculture and Food Research (FISA) was established in Germany in 2009. FISA aims at a better coordination of research funds and includes more than 5.000 projects to date.

A comprehensive overview of current research projects is what Federal Government and Federal State authorities in Germany need for mid and long term research planning and to evaluate applications for research projects.

“FISA, the internet platform, offers multiple search functions and access to information about current and completed research projects. With FISA the Federal Office for Agriculture and Food (BLE) offers both a useful tool and the opportunity to present the German research landscape”, says Dr. Hanns-Christoph Eiden, president of the BLE. In addition to publicly funded research projects, FISA includes projects funded by the European Commission, the German Research Community and other sponsors to prevent double funding.

The recipe for success: linked data, centrally coordinated

In addition to the title, description, budget details or duration of each research project, FISA now lists more than 2,500 research institutions, nearly 130 programmes of support and about 30 framework programmes. Each link leads to an array of further information for politicians, public authorities, scientists and the industry to see research activities in the fields of agriculture and food at a glance.

Research topics and aims

The Federal and Laender governments in Germany fund a wide range of scientific projects in agriculture, food, fisheries and forestry to improve economic performance, to enhance nutritional habits and to promote the sustainable use of natural resources. FISA provides answers as to

• who sponsors
• which projects
• and how many
• via which framework programme
A central platform: bi-lingual, up-to-date and „for the road“
At http://www.fisaonline.de project information is documented centrally and uniformly. FISA also offers information about research institutions, project managers, sponsors and related general networks. Nearly all information is available both in German and in English. Thus, FISA facilitates networking and coordination across research landscapes in Germany, in Europe and around the world.

Latest information is available via rss feed: FISA automatically informs you as soon as a new project has been published. Project data and information about institutions can be seen online and are also available for download.

Im Focus: Powerful IT security for the car of the future – research alliance develops new approaches

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.

Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...

Im Focus: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
