A very productive Management Board Meeting of EcoStack has been held last week in Lyon (France), at ISARA, in a very nice environment. Many thanks to Alexander Wezel and his collaborators for the great hospitality!
The first EcoStack Management Board meeting will be held at ISARA in Lyon in March 2019 (14/03 to 15/03/2019).
The management board is the main decisional body, composed by the project coordinator, the work package leaders and deputy leaders, and the responsible representatives of regional groups. They will evaluate the work of the last 6 months and define actions for the next year and beyond.
The EcoStack Kick-off meeting took place in Portici (Napoli), Italy, on October 22-24, 2018. More than 50 participants, representing the 24 partners involved, met at the Royal Palace of Portici, where the Department of Agricultural Sciences – University of Napoli “Federico II” is based, to discuss and plan the project development. It was a highly successful start towards an exciting research experience.
EcoStack, a 5-year Research and Innovation Action, under the EU Horizon 2020 programme, has started on September 10, 2018, and includes 24 partners with complementary expertise, covering all major pedoclimatic production zones and major agricultural production systems in Europe. The overall goal of the project is to develop and support ecologically, economically and socially sustainable crop production via stacking of biodiversity service providers and bio-inspired tools. EcoStack will use transdisciplinary research methods and will promote active participation of multi-actor groups across Europe in order to create new knowledge, transfer the know-how, co-design new cropping systems, and use stakeholder-guided development of new agricultural concepts for generating economic and ecological benefits for farmers, biodiversity and society.
