An agenda developed in consultation with 500 European experts from 17 countries

The agenda was developed from the results of consultations with 500 European experts from the 17 partner countries.

Additional briefing notes were produced for specific fields where more in-depth collaborative research across Europe is needed.

The research agenda developed by the INSPIRATION project will help public and private funding organisations to identify research projects on soils and land use in which they should invest to support innovation and contribute to a greener, more competitive and more resource-efficient Europe.
