New European Union project that integrates the
School of Agriculture and Consulai
Analyse the benefits of agroforestry systems,
climate and environment.
EUROPEAN MIXED PROJECT
It brings together 19 partners from 10 European Union countries
(Portugal, Denmark, Romania, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Poland, Germany, Austria and France), started in October 2020.
Find innovative solutions for the different agroforestry systems in Europe.
The MIXED project started in October 2020
The MIXED project has a total budget of 7 million euros
“It is not every day that we win a project like this, and I have no doubt that the knowledge we will gain from this project will help to increase the sustainability and resilience of agriculture in Portugal and Europe, especially in relation to climate change.”
Cláudia Marques dos Santos Cordovil
ISA professor and coordinator of the MIXED project at ISA.
The project is carried out by ISA – School of Agriculture (University of Lisbon), in collaboration with the company Consulai.
The overall coordination of MIXED is the responsibility of the University of Aarhus, Denmark, which will conduct the project in close collaboration with the other European partners.
FOR 4 YEARS
The project will develop networks across Europe, covering a wide range of agroforestry systems.
In addition to learning, which will result from the link between European partners, a scientific knowledge base will be created on methods and systems that can help develop the European agricultural sector in a sustainable direction.
The use of resources like water, nutrients, soil and ecosystem services, should be strengthened in European agriculture, namely in the agroforestry systems.
INTEGRATION OF AGROFORESTRY SYSTEMS ...
It can bring many benefits in terms of sustainability, resilience to climate change, efficiency in the use of nutrients and increased biodiversity.
World agriculture is facing climate change and major changes in agricultural policies and structural conditions. There are serious constraints caused by these changes, especially if there are no robust and resilient agricultural production systems.
MIXED WILL HELP
To develop economically efficient systems, with competitive products of high quality and, at the same time, resilient to climate change and efficient to meet environmental goals.
