Institute for Rural Development Research at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe-University of Frankfurt/Main

Welcome to the IfLS website!

As an independent research institute we are active in the following areas:

| Sustainable development and multifunctionality of rural areas
| Rural development, agriculture and environment
| Regional development, marketing and consulting

Our range of services encompasses multidisciplinary research as well as consulting projects related to a sustainable development of rural areas. One of our particular focuses is the effect of agricultural policy, as well as structural, regional and environmental policies, on rural areas. Our ability to holistically recognise, evaluate and interlink contexts is characteristic of our working approach.
