Integrated SERVices supporting a sustainable AGROecological transition (AgroServ) will facilitate a systemic and holistic approach to understand the threats and challenges agriculture is facing, towards the implementation of a resilient and sustainable agri-food system. The project proposes a transdisciplinary offer of services, integrating the actors of the agriculture system in the research process, of which the farmers are the first, thanks to a wide offer of living labs across Europe.

Funded by HORIZON-INFRA-2021-SERV-01-02 101058020, AgroServ will develop a wider catalogue of integrated and customised services, providing a strong community building and training programme for access managers and users. Results from the research performed under AgroServ will be synthesised to be used in the scope of evidence-based policy making. Data from AgroServ will be open and compliant with FAIR practices, and made available on the long-term to the communities, and be linked with European initiatives, such as the EOSC.

eScienceLab involvement

The eScience Lab is one of over 70 partners involved in this project, and will bring expertise from RDMKit, IBISBA and FAIRDOM-SEEK and build upon that work.

UK partners in Horizon Europe projects are funded through Innovate UK (#10038927) from the UKRI Horizon Europe guarantee.
