The Organising Committee has agreed on the importance of holding the Eurosoil congress in order to pursue the objective of Connecting People & Soil through a face-to-face meeting. The interest and engagement already created for the meeting is clear from the high number and quality of sessions and contributions submitted. Read more here.

The objective of Eurosoil 2020 is to bring together leading research scientists working on soil related topics and stakeholders dealing with issues of public concern, such as soil degradation and consequences of climatic changes.

Eurosoil 2020 will have a strong focus on the important bridging role of soil practitioners to translate scientific knowledge into practice.  

In line with the theme “Connecting People and Soil”, the sessions are organised around the soil-related topics of the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.
