INSPIRATION in the United Kingdom

INSPIRATION is built on very close interaction with relevant actors in the soil, land use and land management fields. They are involved in formulating the Strategic Research Agenda and its implementation models throughout by participating in the national “demand identification” workshops. The stakeholders involved in INSPIRATION workshops will be encouraged to act as ambassadors for Strategic Research Agenda dissemination and implementation – that after all reflects the needs and demands expressed by the stakeholders themselves.

National workshop

INSPIRATION has identified key individuals to act as National Focal Points (NFP) as an innovative way to mobilize all relevant actors, increase policy coherence, resolve trade-offs, manage conflicting interests, increase participation of citizens in decision-making and improve public awareness and business uptake of research results across the entire European Union. National workshops convened by each NFP will bring together each country’s most relevant funders, end users and researchers in soil, land use and land management related to the above mentioned challenges, and thereby focussing on the relevant issues explained in the workpackage descriptions.


The National Focal Point has to organize at national level a 2-day workshop, where the collated information (national key stakeholder interviews and desk-exercise) will be reviewed and synthesized and prioritized by the national key stakeholders, under NFP guidance.


National workshop

The national workshop was held on 8 and 9 July 2015.
