SoilCritZone is funded by the European Commission, under Framework 6, and will bring together the fragmented European soil research community so that we can better understand what policy needs to be developed for the sustainability of European soils in the 21st century. 

We aim to mobilize experts from a wide range of scientific disciplines (including weathering, modelling, ecology, agronomy, hydrology) to develop a European soil research strategy that quantifies the entire soil life cycle, – from soil formation rates to soil erosion processes - and to develop a predictive framework that can underpin European soil conservation efforts.
