The kick-off meeting of the H2020 project SUPER-G will be held in Lisbon, Portugal from 13 to 15 June and will be hosted by project partners CONSULAI.
SUPER-G aims to co-develop sustainable permanent grassland systems and policies with farmers and policymakers that will be effective in optimising productivity, whilst supporting biodiversity and delivering a number of other public goods and services.
SUPER-G is a 5-year, multi-actor project under the Horizon 2020 SFS-27-2017 call.
The SUPER-G consortium is made up of 20 project partners and will involve 20+ farm networks and 17+ experimental platforms and field experiments across 5 biogeographical regions in Europe. The project will benchmark & synthesise data on permanent grassland performance by means of: evidence reviews, field experimentation, expert elicitation and modelling.
Outputs and impacts from SUPER-G include:
- A better understanding of the importance and functioning of permanent grasslands;
- Increased availability and uptake of grassland management options & technologies;
- Improved competitiveness of farming systems based on or including permanent grassland;
- Development of agricultural and environmental policies that support optimal management of permanent grasslands.
