They use the Dutch knowledge agenda soil and subsurface (which is the same as the dutch contribution to the INSPIRATION agenda) as leading research questions. They set out different calls (next call is on climate / rural area, nature / infrastructure or energy, max 150 KEUR, 50% cofininancing needed, deadline Nov 29 2017 ) They are open for collaboration in europe. how and on which topics is not specified yest. Probably theyw ant to arrange this via the Knowledge and Innovation Program Soil and Subsurface (also entered in this database)

As such the organization has limited funding capacity. However Ms Alzola has tried to reflect in her responses the potential interest of the Department of Environment of the Basque Government with respect to the SRA. She is willing to participate in an online match making / meeting in the medium term though.

This research will provide us with an understanding of the magnitude of the ecological, economic and social impacts of climate change, land management decisions, emerging and/or mixed pollutants, socio-economic drivers of land management and land use change, and policies, planning and regulation.

  • For founders
  • For endusers
  • For researchers
  • For citizens
Investments in research on assessing the impacts of drivers of environmental change will generate a better understanding of the magnitude of ecologic, economic and social impacts of climate change, land use and land mangement at different spatial as well as temporal scales. This will provide critical input for establishing novel and innovative alternatives for land use and land management that better balance the interests of all stakeholders.
End-users will benefit from research that contributes to understanding the net-impact of land management strategies and the effect of policies and regulations affecting land use, since it will provide them with knowledge and arguments to defend their interests in decision-making and to pro-actively adapt to emerging challenges.
Researchers are challenged to develop a thorough understanding of the environmental, socio-economic and ecological impact of land management decisions at and for different spatial and temporal scales.
Research on understanding net impact will empower citizens as responsible consumers but also as stakeholders in the land use planning decision-making process. It will enable them to put alternatives on the negotiation table that will reduce the possible adverse impacts of land use that they experience and to create benefits from a sustainable use of natural capital.

This research topic concerns the understanding of the socio-economic, ecological and environmental impacts of climate change, land management decisions, emerging and/or mixed pollutants, socioeconomic drivers of land use and land use change, and policies, planning and regulation.

This topic clusters research and innovation needs regarding the identification (why and where are there impacts?) and the assessment (what is the impact?) of (yet unknown) impacts of different drivers of environmental change. In this regard, there is a need to better understand the impacts of (see also figure NI-3):
1) climate change;
2) land management decisions;
3) new and / or mixed pollutants;
4) socioeconomic drivers of land use and land use change, such as market trends, lifestyle and consumption patterns; and
5) policies, planning and regulation.

Activities: knowledge transfer, knowledge creation, demonstration, training and education, survey and monitoring, networking
