Sister projects Sister projects are a range of collaborative initiatives designed to enhance and extend the information and resources offered by the main project. They are usually run in conjunction with the parent project and are designed to complement its content, providing additional perspectives and knowledge on related topics. By working together, sister projects serve to enrich the overall user experience by providing a richer and more diverse range of resources to access and explore. InBestSoilInBestSoil is a project funded by the European Union’s Horizon Europe programme involving twenty partners from ten countries, with very different profiles (universities, small and medium-sized enterprises, consultancies, farmers, and NOGs, among others). The project will provide data, evidence, tools and models to assess how investment in soil health can contribute to the transition to a long-term resilient and sustainable use of soil, using 6 lighthouses and 3 living labs, which provides a total of 9 study areas across 4 biogeographic regions from Europe (Boreal, Continental, Atlantic, Mediterranean), and different land uses (agriculture, forest, urban, mining), as models for co-creation and co-design (multi-actor approach, responsible research and innovation and open science). SoilValuesLand managers produce marketable products by combining natural and man-made resources, but often neglect the ecosystem services they also provide. SoilValues aims to promote successful soil health business models where land managers are incentivised to invest in healthy soils and are compensated for non-marketed services. To achieve this, three key conditions must be met: measurement of SES outcomes; exchange of data and information for monitoring, reporting and verification; and an appropriate institutional framework. SoilValues will provide an assessment framework, establish test-beds and communities of practice, design a toolbox of incentives and policy recommendations, and raise awareness of soil health business models.
