Stakeholders & Outreach

EJP SOIL stakeholder engagement

With active stakeholder engagement, EJP SOL can create a platform for cross-European interaction between researchers and stakeholders. This i important to successfully:

  • Identify and address knowledge needs and support harmonised soil information.
  • Develop and deploy strategic research agenda (a roadmap) on climate-smart sustainable agricultural soil management.
  • Develop best-practice knowledge exchange processes adapted to the needs of farmers, scientists, and policymakers.
  • Generate practical evidence-based recommendations that enhance adoption among agricultural stakeholders and contribute to policy formulation.

On this background, EJP SOIL invites you to engage in the programme as a stakeholder representing the breadth of agricultural systems and soil management practices in your country.

Participation in open EJP SOIL workshops and events

If you accept to become an EJP SOIL stakeholder, we will keep your name and contact information during the span of the project's duration. At this stage, we only ask permission to send e-mails with invitations to event like workshops, webinars together with updates about the project. You can withdraw your consent to being a stakeholder at any time. Your consent does not involve any other obligations.

As a stakeholder, you may receive invitations to participate in other EJP SOIL activities. In this case, we will inform you directly about the purpose of the activity and ask for your specific consent.

Outreach to EJP SOIL stakeholders

Communication and dissemination happens on both a general EJP SOIL level and on project level, concerning more specific research outcomes. Each of the five groups has specific interests and influence on agricultural soil management in Europe and communication as well as engagement activities are targeted at each individual group. Click on the stakeholder group of interest in the menu to the left for more detailed outreach information.

Depending on the interest of the stakeholder, engagement will occur through different processes.  Successful achievement of the expected impacts and exploitation of EJP SOIL results will be ensured through carefully planned multi-stakeholder involvement. This will create rapid awareness on project deliverables, results and innovations.

National hubs and National Communication Representatives

Knowledge about stakeholder perspectives enables effective and widespread dissemination of key findings and recommendations. Therefore, National hubs, which are  built on existing national soil stakeholder networks) and National Communication Representatives (who are part of the National hubs) have the role of sharing information at national level and diffusing to local and regional stakeholders      

National Communication Representatives will communicate and disseminate to national stakeholders according to the heterogeneous soil properties, climate conditions, agricultural management and practices and socioeconomic structures across Europe.
