Radar: the agricultural research environment under the microscope

Radar: the agricultural research environment under the microscope The Radar project describes what developments are taking place in areas relevant for agricultural research. In the political sphere, it can be seen that the importance of the state is diminishing. Technological progress is continuing and is evident, for example, in a rise in the global cultivation of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). In the economic area, the exchange of goods and services between national economies is increasing. Society is showing less solidarity, living a more unhealthy lifestyle, yet buying with more awareness of the environment. The melting of the Swiss glaciers is a sign of global warming. The investment of large multinational companies in research is on the increase. Conclusions for agricultural research are drawn from the observed trends.

Abstract

The Radar project describes what developments are taking place in areas relevant for agricultural research. In the political sphere, it can be seen that the importance of the state is diminishing. Technological progress is continuing and is evident, for example, in a rise in the global cultivation of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). In the economic area, the exchange of goods and services between national economies is increasing. Society is showing less solidarity, living a more unhealthy lifestyle, yet buying with more awareness of the environment. The melting of the Swiss glaciers is a sign of global warming. The investment of large multinational companies in research is on the increase. Conclusions for agricultural research are drawn from the observed trends. It is planned to continue the Radar project as a permanent monitoring system and to update it periodically.
