Challenge: At present, 60-70% of soils in Europe are in unhealthy conditions, mainly because of poor land management practices, pollution, intensive agriculture, and the constant effects of climate change.
Solution: MarginUp! is developing sustainable and circular value chains to produce bioproducts and biofuels from natural raw materials grown on marginal lands. By introducing climate resilient and biodiversity-friendly non-food crops on marginal and low-productivity lands, MarginUp! will increase farming system resilience, enhance biodiversity, and promote stakeholder participation.
Duration: December 2022 – November 2026
