Factsheets

Livings Labs and Lighthouses are key to accelerating the adoption of sustainable practices by users and developing solutions adapted to local conditions.

NATI00NS has outlined a series of five factsheets which provides clear information on what the Living Labs and Lighthouses are and their role in the EU Mission ‘A Soil Deal for Europe’. The factsheet “Funding Opportunities” provides a bird’s-eye view of the types of Living Labs, the criteria to identify the Lighthouses and the actions supporting the development of the Living Labs across Europe. The other four factsheets focus on each type of Living Lab that will be funded, which are categorised under specific land use: Agricultural, Forestry, (Post)Industrial, Urban.
