The Europe-LAND Stakeholder Engagement Strategy
To facilitate policy design and implementation in the field of land use, the Europe-LAND project aims to engage with stakeholders from various backgrounds, from land users such as farmers and foresters, land owners, to policy makers on local, regional, national and international levels, to industry, academia and research. Find out below what participatory actions we have planned over the duration of the project.

This action is targeted towards experts from academia, research, policy and practice.
Over the course of the project, partners engage with a range of experts on project relevant topics, from land-use to modelling, policy and methodological approaches. These exchanges range from consultations during meetings and workshops, discussions at events and conferences, network engagement to mid-term collaborations on subtasks and joint publications. The goal is to achieve synergies with mutual benefits for all. The project can profit from expertise and direct input on relevant issues whilst external experts can benefit from project outputs, results and joint work.

Science Policy Dialogue
This action is targeted towards EU representatives and relevant EU projects.
In order to align research and policy work with expectations and needs of the European Commission, the Europe-LAND project proposes a yearly policy dialogue, also inviting other relevant EU projects working in the field of land-use and land cover change policy. The four proposed steps of the dialogue are as follows:
STEP 1 (2024) – Virtual round-table with relevant HE projects to identify policy issues covered by the projects, first policy recommendations and open questions. EU representatives are welcome too to share their perspectives
STEP 2 (2025) – Workshop with HE projects to filter policy areas, form sub-categories and discuss open questions from Step 1
STEP 3 (2026) – Workshop discussing results of Steps 1 and 2 with EU representatives, aligning work with policy objectives, identify remaining knowledge and research gaps
STEP 4 (2027) – Public presentation of policy dialogue achievements in the frame of the Europe-LAND final conference
Continuous collaboration with other projects
This action is targeted towards HE and other European projects in the field of land use, land management, land cover change and policy work.
