Forum des parties prenantes de l’Observatoire des Sols de l’UE
octobre 19 - octobre 21
A key element of the European Commission’s EU Soil Observatory (EUSO) is an open, inclusive and dynamic engagement with its diverse stakeholder base. These include:
Relevant Commission services and European agencies
Member State representatives (ranging from policymakers to the research community)
To facilitate this interaction, the Joint Research Centre (JRC) is organising the first ever EUSO Stakeholders Forum. This three-day event (built on six, focused, half-day sessions) will reflect the challenges facing soil within the various strategies of the Green Deal (e.g. the Soil, Biodiversity and Farm2Fork strategies, Zero Pollution Action Plan) and Horizon Europe’s proposed Mission on Soil Health and Food.
In addition to a high-level panel on recent soil-related policy developments, the meeting will establish a series of dedicated Working Groups to address burning scientific and policy questions (e.g. soil monitoring, citizen engagement and increased soil literacy, soil pollution, erosion and biodiversity). Participants will be encouraged to engage in discussions and possibly to contribute to the Working Groups.
A dedicated Young Soil Researchers Forum is also planned on 21 October.
