EU Soil Day
November 6, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm CET
The EU Soil Day event will set the scene for the EU Soil agenda to protect and restore soils and ensure their sustainability, providing an update on the Mission ‘A Soil Deal for Europe’ and learning about EU funding programmes supporting solutions such as Horizon Europe, LIFE and also the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). Ahead of the European Mission Soil Week that will take place in Madrid later that same month, the event will be an opportunity to have a complete overview both from the policy and projects’ point of view, with a specific regional and local approach. The Region of Murcia, with the support of the EU Spanish Presidency, has teamed up with the ERRIN Network, the HUMUS project, the Spanish Office for Science and Technology – SOST CDTI, and several EU-funded projects related to Soil challenges to ensure the interest and success of this initiative. Additionally, representatives from DG AGRI, DG ENV, DG CLIMA, JRC, and CINEA will enrich the content and discussions and we will be able to learn about challenges and solutions on the ground from EU-funded projects.
Annalaura Vannuccini and Francesco Molinari from Anci Toscana will present the HuMUS Project and launch the Open Call for proposals to fund pilot projects that contribute to effective exchanges of experiences between municipalities and regions across Europe, creating spaces and practices for discussion and dialogues on soil health challenges and promoting the co-implementation of solutions aligned with societal needs.
