Industrial collaborative research

The Committee

Over the past few months, several companies and research institutes came to us with the request to become more involved in cereal research. It is about collecting funds for research projects from the industry that are needed for the support of research projects in Industrial Communal Research (IGF) of the Federation of Industrial Research Associations (AIF). Especially for the support of research especially on the purely scientific, not too technical oriented part of the cereal sciences, there is a need for commitment that cannot be met alone by the industrial associations and federations involved. In the AGF there is a place where the interests of the cereal processing industry in the broadest sense can be represented bundled. Since the AGF (as a registered association) has exactly this support in its statute and has also the necessary structures for such a support, the AGF is ideally suited for this task.

We have supported the following projects:

Aufklärung der molekularen Struktur
des Glutennetzwerks von Dinkel und Emmer als Grundlage zur Verbesserung
der Teigeigenschaften (You can find the report of the project here)
Prof. Dr. Katharina Scherf/Dr. Sabrina Geißlitz

Acrylamidreduktion in Getreide- und Kartoffelprodukten durch systematischen Einsatz von Asparaginasen und Antioxidantien (You can find the report of the project here)
Prof. Dr. Michael Granvogl /PD Dr. Claudia Oellig & Prof. Dr. Katharina Scherf

Charakterisierung von Erbsen
- und Haferproteinfraktionen zum Auslegen und Optimieren von Prozessen für die Herstellung von Alternativen zu Milchprodukten
(You can find the report of the project here)
Prof. Dr. Katharina Scherf/Dr. Barbara Lexhaller & Prof. Dr. Dr. Jörg Hinrichs/N. N.
