FAU/Stephan Minx


The university election has started. It’s the perfect opportunity to have your say on how FAU is run. All those eligible to vote can cast their votes during the election period from 12 noon on Tuesday 15 June 2021 to 12 noon on Tuesday 22 June 2021. The university elections are being conducted this year as an electronic election with the option of a postal vote for the first time. This makes FAU the first university in Bavaria to hold electronic university elections.

Organic farming is booming, and expectations for the quality of organic products are high. In future, it is hoped that sensory detection processes developed by Fraunhofer IVV, FAU, TH Nürnberg and other partners will ensure that organic products are of the highest quality. The joint project ‘SHIELD’, which stands for using sensory detection processes to guarantee the quality of (organic) locally produced food, is due to start on 1 July 2021, and has received 1.2 million euros in funding from the Bavarian Research Foundation.
