European Joint Programme on Soil launched
26 partners from 24 European countries will join forces to work on climate-smart, sustainable management of agricultural soils. The programme is co-funded by the participating organisations and the European Commission, and its core mission is to create an integrated European research community on agricultural soil management, while contributing to food security, climate change mitigation and adaptation, and ecosystem services. The programme will help strengthen collaboration between the different partners, and, over the next five years, it will set up a common strategic research agenda, implement trans-national calls, and foster capacity building and societal understanding of agricultural soil management.
