Main targets of this objective are to:
- Collect, harmonize and store all the available information necessary to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the project’s research activities and to create a database storing all the data collected from literature, other projects, and the national and international sources of both counties
- Collect and analyze all the data and results gathered from the pilot cultivations of the selected fiber crops in the contaminated demo fields of both countries. Different levels of irrigation and nitrogen fertilization will be tested, as well as the application of mycorrhiza.
- Broaden the range of suitable non-food feedstock candidates for phytoremediation, with optimally-lowered resource inputs and developing economically viable and sustainable, eco-friendly end bio-based products.
- Adopt and apply a framework for supply and value chain analyses of the three pillars of sustainability (environment, economy and society), performing detailed analysis for the selected farm- and business- based systems and provide recommendations for future policy and market development.
