The Soil Mission Support project developed a European research and innovation roadmap towards healthy soils by 2030 to map out the road ahead towards this transition. We will inform on the roadmap and discuss its practical applications in the years ahead. REGISTRATION DEADLINE: 20 June 2022
Managing and mapping agricultural soils for enhancing soil functions and services.
The amount and specifications of soil data and soil information infrastructures differ across Europe due to differences in needs, methods and knowledge between countries. Harmonized methods and data infrastructures will allow easier sharing of soil data in Europe, which is essential for research and for policy advice on agricultural land.
Year-round soil cover, organic matter additions and a reduction of traffic on agricultural land. Are these the management practices that will restore and strengthen Europe’s soils? No single management practice can be the one solution for all soils and climates: context is key!
‘Resources, Infrastructure and Capabilities Inventory (RICI)’ is an online platform for policy stakeholders. RICI provides access to a pool of specialized scientists and experts at local, regional and national level across Europe. The online searchable inventory is the ‘Yellow pages’ on expertise on soil science in relation to questions for policy matters.
An open session on soil mapping/monitoring is organized, titled: A3.02 Towards a space-based Earth Observation Soil Monitoring System.
Join us to get an overview of relevant aspects for the call and will give a short introduction for the submission tool.
What are living labs and lighthouses in the EU mission ’A Soil Deal for Europe’? What potential living labs and lighthouses do we have in the Nordics?…
How can existing scientific knowledge can both inform and help to shape carbon farming policies and development of business models.
