Project name: Fostering cross-border knowledge exchange and co-creation on sustainable soil and farm management

Project acronym: Soil-X-Change

Programme: Horizon Europe

Project duration: 01/2024 – 12/2026




The main objective of the Soil-X-Change project is to collect, harmonize, combine and integrate the results related to sustainable soil and farm management, developed by EIP-AGRI Operational Groups and project partners and to drive the process for scaling up these technologies, practices and knowledge between 9 countries with similar negative aspects of climate change and targets further acceleration to countries with the same problems.

The project will help to connect farmers, interested actors, policy makers, projects, and initiatives to speed up innovation and promote faster, wider co-creation and transposition of innovative solutions for sustainable soil management into practice. The Soil-X-Change project will create an EU-wide network, so EIP Operational Groups (OGs) and key stakeholders can work together on sustainable soil and farm management solutions and to share knowledge and ready-to-use practices that will enable farmers to make the right decisions related to agricultural production practices.

The project will contribute to effective AKIS by intensifying thematic cooperation between researchers, farmers, and other stakeholders in the EU. Soil-X-Change will also contribute to the green transition, smart agriculture, climate-neutrality, and sustainability areas, as well as enhancing and exchanging the knowledge of the main actors.

Soil-X-Change is initiated by EIP-AGRI Operational Group practitioners and reflects the needs of 151 direct partners. Furthermore, Soil-X-Change will disseminate and share innovative practices and at the end of the project the extended knowledge and innovative ideas of member and non-member OGs will be showcased to other stakeholders and farmers in an international environment.

The project is implemented by a consortium with 13 participants from 9 countries.
