NEDO is pursuing ambitious research and development activities to achieve the goal of the ‘Moonshot Research & Development Program’, coordinated by the Cabinet Office of Japan.

As one of the projects, Tohoku University and NARO launched the project, "Mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions from agricultural lands by optimizing nitrogen and carbon cycles", in 2020.

Several soil-related studies of the EU’s Research and Innovation Programme ‘Horizon Europe’, are currently being implemented as the ‘SOIL’ Project of the European Joint Program.

  • EJP SOIL coordinator, Claire Chenu, INRAE, France will be speaking
  • The EJP SOIL funded project 'TRACE Soils will be presented    

In this symposium, the goals of the above projects and the trends in research on the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions from agricultural lands by leading international research institutes will be shared.

In addition, there will be a discussion on “‘Cool Earth’, how to stop global warming by optimizing carbon and nitrogen cycling”.
