Both lack of nitrogen (N) and too much nitrogen is a problem. Lack of nitrogen causes reduced food production while too much nitrogen causes damage to the environment and public health.
DNMARK is a multidisciplinary research alliance proposing new ideas to optimise the use of nitrogen. The ideas have to be sustainable in the sense that they have to improve resource efficiency and public health, and at the same time reduce climatic and environmental impact.
Behind the alliance are Danish and foreign universities and several partners from the business world including agribusinesses and related companies as well as public authorities and interest groups.
