forest soils

Join us for an insightful webinar focused on the critical role of living labs in addressing forest soil challenges and exploring innovative solutions for forest soils. The event will bring together experts from various fields to discuss the integration of research, industry, government, and citizen engagement in preserving and managing forest soils. This webinar is organised in the framework of the NATI00NS project, whose main aim is to promote the Mission Soil Living Labs topics as part of the 2023-2025 Work Programme of Horizon Europe. NATI00NS is also organising national events, providing access to materials and information as well as stimulating discussions on the set-up of Living Labs (LLs) to address specific soil needs in different local and regional contexts.
