BeyondSoil is an initiative of the University of Hohenheim with the support of Madora with regard to the Mission Soil Initiative of the EU
Acknowledging the power of global ecosystems and the key role that soils play within it, soil health and fertility will play a key role in order to maintain plant health, food safety and security and therefore human and animal welfare in the long term.
The international consortium BeyondSoil is composed of 26 partners from 13 countries. It integrates knowledge gained from the FP7 project BioFector (www.biofector.info). Some of the major players from research and industry are part of our consortium and provide a link with major current soil initiatives like the Horizon 2020 project LANDSUPPORT (www.landsupport.eu) in order to identify early synergies and collaborations to boost project outcomes.
