International Centre for Sustainable Development (IZNE)

Regional Sustainable Food Business Forum

The Regional Forum Responsible Business in the Field of Sustainable Food was founded on 05 July 2013. The forum is based on an initiative of the International Center for Sustainable Development (IZNE) of the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences (Prof. Dr. Wiltrud Terlau) and the Schmalenbach Institute for Economics and Law of the Cologne University of Applied Sciences (Prof. Dr. Manfred Kiy).

Its aim is to discuss and analyze the above-mentioned topics in cooperation with universities, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and companies in the region and to develop solutions. Particular importance is attached to the involvement of students and young scientists from the participating universities.

  • dialog, communication and networking between universities, politics, institutions and relevant companies in the region
  • Joint applied and practice-oriented research and consulting projects in cooperation with companies


Fields of work
