National Engagement Event in Luxembourg

National Engagement Event in Luxembourg

In the framework of the Horizon Europe Programme for Research and Innovation (2021-2027), the European Commission launched the Mission 'A Soil Deal for Europe' aiming to establish and fund 100 living labs and lighthouses to drive the transition to healthy soils by 2030.

The NATI00NS project, funded by the Horizon Europe programme, is running national engagement events across Europe to promote the EU Mission "A Soil Deal for Europe" in national and regional contexts by providing access to quality materials and information, and stimulating discussions on the Living Lab (LL) set-ups to address specific soil needs in different local contexts. Ultimately, the aim is to support regional and national authorities and organisations to apply for the European Commission's calls for proposals on "Living Labs for Soil Health".

ENoLL – the European Network of Living Labs, in the framework of the NATI00NS project together with the Luxinnovation are organising the National Engagement Event in Luxembourg that will take place on the 16th of May at 10:00 to 12:00, with the possibility of live translation in German and French.

During the event, our experts will introduce the concept of 'Living Labs' (LL) and 'Lighthouses' focusing on soil health, as foreseen in the Mission's implementation plan. The sessions are designed to engage participants from all sectors and illustrate the benefits of engaging in Mission activities. 

This event is open to any interested party such as researchers, farmers, foresters and representatives of their professional associations, land managers and landowners, spatial planners, food and bioeconomy companies, consumer associations, local communities, educators, cultural and creative industries, citizens, civil society organisations, NGOs, and government representatives.

The Soil Mission is a great opportunity for all Luxemburgish entities engaged in or willing to contribute to the transition to healthy soils to maximise their actions and achieve their full potential.
