Alumni Göttingen e.V. “Section Agricultural Sciences” (previously GFL e.V.)

  • The association of friends of the agricultural faculty (GFL) was founded in 1987

  • Since 1st January 2011 the GFL is merged with the Almuni Göttingen e.V. of the Georg-August-University and follows its targets as the Section of Agricultural Sciences

  • The Section of Agricultural Sciences only follows purposes of general benefit. Therefore your membership subscription and donations are tax-deductible

  • The Section supports the cooperation of science, economy, administration and agricultural experience, especially by seminars and excursions. In public it supports and represents the matter of the faculty

  • It cares about the consciousness of unity of all former and active members of the faculty through regular circulars which informs about the latest news as well as events. On the events you can visit the new organization and area of work of the faculty

  • With its modest budget it helps the faculty in matters of award prizes for the best student or to support journeys for young scientists to their lecture of their own results of research

  • Last but not least it promotes the cultivation of sociability within the faculty. Best examples are the annual faculty ball which is organized by the student council, the annual celebration of “Golden Promotion” and of course the special gala of the 50th founding of the faculty in 2002
