Press conference: recommendations of NRP 68

Today, on 17 December 2018, NRP 68 is presenting its concluding recommendations at a national press conference.

Between 2012 and 2017, the 29 projects of the National Research Programme "Sustainable Use of Soil as a Resource" (NRP 68) have investigated the diverse aspects of soil as a resource. The aim was to improve our understanding of soil systems, develop tools to assess soil quality and elaborate strategies for the sustainable use of soil. The results and recommendations have been published in five thematic synthesis reports and one overall synthesis report.

The Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) has organised the press conference and issued a press release summarising the main results and recommendations of NRP 68.
