The European Joint Programme has introduced its Advisory Board, which will provide independent advice to the EJP SOIL strategic research roadmap. Thus, the Board will support the scientific excellence, societal relevance and impact of the EJP SOIL. Its composition ensures that a wide diversity of relevant stakeholders’ perspectives is provided and that these perspectives are considered and integrated in the entire work cycle of the EJP SOIL.
The members are active at international level and have a broad vision of the challenges facing agriculture, food and environment. The twenty-one Board members are experts in a diversity of disciplines, creating a board composed of scientific experts and representatives of scientific and stakeholder organisations. They have been selected for their outstanding scientific and/or professional record at international level. The Board is chaired by Professor dr. Katharina Helming, professor of sustainability assessment, Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF) in Germany. Dr. Bram Moeskops, Research & Innovation Manager at IFOAM Organics Europe in Brussels, is the Vice-Chair of the board.
