Health for humans, animals & plants

LE 14-20 Continuing education and training

With our diverse and comprehensive expert knowledge of agricultural inputs and their use for sustainable innovative management, animal health and food and feed safety, we offer advanced training seminars, workshops, information events and farm visits on educational projects for rural development (LE 14-20) including ÖPUL (Austrian Program for Environmentally Sound Agriculture). The educational offer on LE 14-20 of our AGES Academy is still young and is continuously expanded in cooperation with other educational providers and partners (first and foremost the LFIs- rural training institutes).

Our experts offer an up-to-date and valuable transfer of knowledge to farmers through their leading work on technical content and regulations in Austria and in cooperation at EU level. You can obtain further training from us on the following topics: soil and plant nutrition, fertilizers, seeds, varieties and biodiversity, plant health, plant protection products, animal health, food and feed safety and bees. The feedback from farmers in the courses is a valuable contribution for us to better meet the need for practical content with the objectives of LE 14-20, the ÖPUL.

The modern methods of knowledge transfer applied by our AGES Academy as well as the recognized professional competence of the lecturers make it possible to provide our existing integrative knowledge directly. Our already established and continuously developed AGRAR online tools are integrated into the seminar and workshop contents and allow for an optimized beneficial application on the farm for the participants. In cooperation with the LFI-Austria, we are developing e-learning offers on soil and nitrogen, among others.

Course offer

You will find the courses offered by our AGES Academy on educational content of LE 14-20 listed chronologically in the calendar of events . Also use the e-learning offers on LE 14-20, on the educational obligations on the ÖPUL measures of the LFI-Austria and the LFIs in the federal provinces.

Some educational measures are subsidized under the Rural Development Program 2014-2020 in the funding measure "Knowledge transfer and information measures in agriculture and forestry" with support from the federal government, the provinces and the European Union .
