The Soil and Land Research Funding Platform (SOILveR) wants to establish a flexible, self-financed platform of European funders that assures future generations of sustainable soils and land;
- by developing knowledge around a common Research Agenda
- by sharing relevant knowledge on the sustainable use and management of soil and land.
Transnational collaboration around a common research agenda provides an added-value to the research and its impact within a more coordinated way. A self-financed platform allows avoiding excessive administrative processes and preserving flexibility in research funding coordination.
The involvement of funders which are also end-users ensures that implementable research is produced and that results are uptaken by stakeholders, at all levels from the national to the local.
