“Banat’s University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine”, from Romania, is looking for a partner to participate in a project related to the emissions of carbon, nitrogen and prosphorus from land and concentrations in receiving waters or in the form of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
Description of the project offered:
Specific Challenge: Carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus losses from land and increasing concentrations in receiving waters or in the form of greenhouse gases (GHG) in the atmosphere are environmental issues of major concern. Agriculture contributes significantly (directly and indirectly) to these emissions, e.g. through land use, land use change, ploughing and soil carbon losses, animal production and fertiliser use. Mitigation solutions need to be based on a thorough understanding of the cycling of carbon (C) and nutrients (nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P)) at various levels to reduce emissions and environmental contaminations and develop possibilities for carbon sequestration. An integrated approach is needed to identify factors and mechanisms that govern these cycles, ranging from agricultural management to consumption patterns.
Partner sought: A Project coordinator or a Project participant, from an EU Member State, with specialization in agriculture, environment, viticulture, GHG emission, Carbon cycle, Carbon sequestration.
