The European Commission annually hosts the EU Green Week, a week long forum for policymakers, prominent environmentalists, and stakeholders from around Europe and beyond to discuss European environmental policy. The motto of the #EUGreenWeek of 2022 had been “EU Green Deal – Make It Real”.
Veltha orginised two #EUGreenWeek partner events int total. The events fell within our series “LOOPS” in which we give rise to a thought-provoking discussion with H2020 project coordinators to shed light on the cutting-edge innovation produced at the research level. We talked with four different projects and discussed vastly different topics.
The first event took place on June 1st, on which we teamed up with DigiPrime and EFPF to speak about digital technologies and how digitalisation is key to build a sustainable future.
On Friday, the 3rd of June, we held our second LOOPS #EUGreenWeek episode. In which discussed together with Bioschamp and SUSFERT the importance of healthy soils and what the key elements of EU Soil Strategy are.
#EUGreenWeek Loops 2.0: DigiPrime and EFPF on digital technologies
#EUGreenWeek - Loops 2.0: a dialogue with BIOSCHAMP and SUSFERT
The EU-funded Bioschamp project will develop a peat-free casing soil to serve as a carrier for the selected microbiota that will act as crop biostimulants. Improving industrial profitability while reducing the agronomical need for pesticides by 90%.
SUSFERT will develop multifunctional fertilisers for phosphorus (P) and iron (Fe) supply, which will fit into existing production processes and common EU agricultural practice.
Combining bio-based and biodegradable coatings, probiotics, and the renewable P-source struvite in at least four novel sustainable P and Fe fertiliser products, which may partly or fully replace unsustainable and resource-intense conventional ones.
Together with the representatives of those two projects, we discussed the EU Soil Strategy and the importance of healthy soil.
