Structural strengthening of the hemp industry

The Linnaeus Competence Centre Hemp has been created to advance and accompany the development process of a new industry in a fact-based manner on the basis of programme and project work.

This is done by participating in EU, federal and state research projects as well as by setting up its own research projects, which are financed by donations or by orders from industry.
