ARCHE’s scientists embark on a new EU Horizon Europe project to support Europe's path to sustainable soil management
ARCHE’s scientists embark on a new EU Horizon Europe project to support Europe’s path to sustainable soil management:
Polluted hotspots will be identified by implementing robust mapping and monitoring tools that are fit for purpose and cover a wide range of contaminants. The project will compile and test sustainable soil decontamination and remediation strategies, implement nature-based solutions, and deliver a step-by-step decision-making framework to determine the best approach for resilient restoration in various European countries.
The complete framework will be developed through strategic engagement with land managers, by working with Living Labs across Europe, grounding knowledge through co-creation and sustainable infrastructure. The implementation will be done through a strong team of multidisciplinary scientists and practitioners by working closely with diverse stakeholders at the local, national, and EU level across Europe. The project will connect land managers and sectors across Europe to take effective action on soil health and provide long-term support for EU policy and international commitments
In this project, ARCHE’s scientists will evaluate the potential health and ecological risks of the contaminated soils under examination. Stay tuned!
