  • Agriculture and horticulture
  • Agrochemistry / agro-technology
  • Animal production (including aquaculture and fishery) and genetics
  • Applied and industrial biotechnology (microbiology, plant, animal)
  • Applied animal physiology, animal welfare, animal nutrition
  • Applied biochemistry, applied molecular biology, applied organic chemistry and synthetic biology
  • Applied ecology / physical ecology
  • Applied plant physiology / plant protection
  • Bioprocess technology, bioprocess modeling and computational biology
  • Conservation biology
  • Ecotoxicology
  • Environmental (bio-)technology and bioremediation
  • Food sciences (non-medical; food chemistry, food microbiology, food technology)
  • Forestry
  • Nature-based solutions/ bio-inspired design
