Project description

Agriculture improves health and wellbeing. It contributes to local food security, increases farmers’ incomes and helps reduce poverty. However, developing a resilient and sustainable agricultural system can be challenging. Success hinges on a deep understanding of the systems and their interactions with the environment. The EU-funded AgroServ project will study the threats and challenges and deepen our understanding of how to achieve a resilient and sustainable agrifood system. This transdisciplinary project will bring together all actors of the agriculture system. Farmers are the first, thanks to a wide offer of living labs across Europe. By delivering a Europe-wide data ecosystem, AgroServ aims to grow the agroecology research community and support the cross-fertilisation of knowledge.

Role of Ghent University
Ghent University is a member of the European Marine Biological Resource Center infrastructure and will provide access to innovative, customised and efficient services (experimental facilities and lipidomics lab) enabling interdisciplinary research for resilient and sustainable agriculture systems and its nexus with environment, health and food security. In addition Ghent University is involved in the work package related to virtual learning labs.
