The SoilCare project kick-off meeting was held from 14-18 March 2016 in Leuven, Belgium. More than 60 scientists representing all 28 partners in the project took part in the meeting that was successfully closed on Friday, March 18th.

During the week of the meeting, time was spent on making detailed plans for the first 1.5 years of the project. Also, time was spent on getting to know each other better, something that is essential in such a large, international project. On Thursday, an excursion that visited several locations in the Belgian study site took place.

The coordination team is currently busy organising all material resulting from the meeting. The meeting presentations, Study Site posters and notes will be made available on this website. Later, also a number of video recordings of important presentations will be made available as well.
