What are the missions of EU for?

Missions are a new instrument for research and innovation to increase the impact of research, connect with citizens and show that science matters in day-to-day lives. A mission in the area of soil health and food will:
– raise awareness on the importance of soils for food production
– deliver knowledge and solutions to manage soils in more sustainable ways so that they are preserved for future generations

The importance of soil health and food

Land and soils are essential for all life-sustaining processes on our planet. They are the basis for the food we grow as well as for many other products such as feed, textiles, or wood.
Soils are facing pressures from an increasing population with demands on land for production, settlement and industries. Soils are also heavily affected by climate change, erosion and sea level rises. Approximately 33% of our global soils are degraded and in the EU, erosion is affecting 25% of agricultural land. Soils are highly dynamic and fragile systems – it can take up to 1,000 years to produce 1cm of soil.
A mission in the area of soil health and food will provide a powerful tool to raise awareness on the importance of soils, engage with citizens, create knowledge and develop solutions for restoring soil health and soil functions. This will allow full use of the potential of soils to mitigate the effects of climate change.

    different topic but it has pretty much the same page layout and design.
    Excellent choice of colors!

    I do accept as true with all of the ideas you have offered for
    your post. They are very convincing and can definitely work.

    Hi! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one? Thanks a lot!

  • vurtil opmer

    Wonderful blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Many thanks
