Project details


LANDMARK is a European Research Project on the sustainable management of land and soil in Europe. The questions that LANDMARK aims to address are: “How can we make the most of our land ? How can we ensure that our soils deliver on the many expectations we have of our land ?”…




LANDMARK adopted a common visual identity and branding to strengthen the corporate image of the project and the Consortium. Discover it in the Communication page.

Publication trees


Our publication trees permit to visualize what the project is producing to communicate outputs and outcomes to a wide variety of stakeholders and the public. Each time LANDMARK publishes a scientific paper this will give birth to a new publication tree.
