Centennial Celebration and Congress of the International Union of Soil Sciences

During the “Centennial Celebration and Congress of the International Union of Soil Sciences” https://centennialiuss2024.org held in Florence (Italy) from May 19-21, 2024, Annamaria Bevivino, member of the Organising Committee, presented the Horizon Europe DeliSoil project in the poster session Soil sciences impact on basic knowledge.

More than 1.500 scientists from all over the world have attended the International Congress, with more than 100 parallel sessions, 1431 abstracts submitted and more than 100 young scientists who applied for the grants. At its core, DeliSoil aims to valorise nutrients and organic matter in food processing side-streams into valuable resources to create tailored soil improvers. This approach not only promotes resource efficiency but also aligns with the principles of a circular economy, where waste is minimized, and every component is utilized effectively.

Central to DeliSoil’s success is its emphasis on collaboration. By establishing regional Living Labs and Lighthouses, the project provides a platform for stakeholders to come together, share insights, and co-create solutions. This collaborative effort ensures that solutions are not only effective but also adaptable to diverse contexts and needs. However, challenges lie ahead on the path to sustainable soil management. DeliSoil acknowledges these obstacles, ranging from technological barriers to regulatory complexities.

Through systematic identification and mitigation of these challenges, the project aims to cover the way for widespread adoption of sustainable practices. Moreover, DeliSoil recognizes the importance of public awareness in driving change. Through targeted outreach efforts, the project pursues to educate and empower communities, promoting a robust understanding of soil health and the significance of sustainable practices. With its innovative approach, collaborative spirit, and commitment to public engagement, DeliSoil holds the promise of a more sustainable future for generations to come.
