Work Programme 2022−2025

The agriculture and food sector faces major challenges. Among others, these include climate change, protecting the air, soil, water and biodiversity, and providing a healthy diet to a growing population. Agroscope’s 2022–2025 Work Programme takes up these challenges.

Third-Party Funded Project

Digestibility of Insect Proteins

Digestibility of Insect Proteins

As part of the HumanProtSources research project, Agroscope is developing a new method to evaluate the quality of proteins by measuring protein digestibility. With the support of Swiss Food Research, a first joint project between Agroscope and the Insekterei GmbH has been funded to evaluate protein digestibility of edible insects by using the novel in vitro method.
