IAMO participates in German delegation at Uzbekistan’s InnoWeek

From 15 to 20 October 2023, IAMO researcher Nodir Djanibekov participated in the German delegation to Uzbekistan organized by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and attended the InnoWeek in Tashkent.

IAMO has been successfully collaborating with researchers in Central Asia in addressing various pressing issues of sustainable agricultural development through various interdisciplinary projects. Participating in the German delegation to Uzbekistan underscores IAMO's commitment to the Central Asian region, where it seeks to promote research collaboration and engage with the international scientific community to tackle global development challenges. At the onset of the visit to further enhance international cooperation, Nodir Djanibekov within the BMBF-led delegation met with administrations of the Samarkand Agri-Innovation and Research University and the Tashkent Institute of Irrigation and Agricultural Mechanization Engineers National Research University. Both institutions cooperate with IAMO in various research projects as well as co-organized the Samarkand conference in 2016 and the Social science knowledge conference in 2018.

In the scope of the German-Uzbek Science Days Conference at the InnoWeek hosted by the Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Innovation of Uzbekistan, IAMO and the Westminster International University in Tashkent (WIUT) presented the newly-launched collaborative research project UzFarmBarometer. During the German-Uzbekistan cooperation sessions at the InnoWeek, Nodir Djanibekov participated in bilateral discussions with representatives of Uzbekistan’s universities and research institutes. The discussions emphasized the importance of international research and educational partnerships and collaborative infrastructures for improving research quality and contributing to national and reginal development. Jointly with representatives of the Leibniz Association, the Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF), and Leibniz Institute of Agricultural Engineering and Bio-economy e.V. (ATB), IAMO offered information about research cooperation opportunities with the Leibniz-research institutes.  

Recognizing the importance of the Central Asian region in addressing global challenges, in 2019 IAMO established the International Central Asia Research Group as a cross-departmental network of scientists conducting research on interdisciplinary topics related to agricultural transformation processes in the region. Uzbekistan plays an important role in the regional development and stability as its policies and processes have far-reaching implications, not only for its neighbors but also for the broader international community. IAMO’s recent cooperation with Uzbekistan’s researchers include various interdisciplinary projects such as the Research and Capacity Building on Food Chains under Climate Change (IPReS), Increasing climate resilience via agricultural insurance (KlimALEZ), the Doctoral Studies in GeoInformation Sciences (DSinGIS), the Structured doctoral programme on Sustainable Agricultural Development in Central Asia (SUSADICA), and  the Central Asian Water Conflict and Migration Network (CAWAMNET).
