Challenges to democracy in Europe: Insights into a complex and turbulent political climate
Read the CORDIS Results Pack
It is undeniable that the 2010s were a particularly turbulent decade for Europe, with the rise of populist politics across almost every EU Member State, growing grassroots protest over a number of polarising issues and of course, the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the EU. Now, with COVID-19, the 2020s promise to be equally uncertain. This CORDIS Results Pack features some innovative EU-funded social sciences projects that are helping us to better understand the major political issues of the day and provide solid recommendations on how policymakers, citizens and other organisations can better respond to the challenges facing European democracy.
Soil and sustainability: Raising the game for European agriculture
Read Research*eu magazine
We probably most often overlook it but the soil underneath our feet is an absolutely fundamental component of the environment, performing vital ecological, social and economic functions. Of course, one of those key economic functions is agriculture. The earliest Mesopotamian farmers realised the importance of managing soil well to increase and better agricultural yields. New agricultural methods throughout the centuries have continued to build upon this knowledge to this very day and around 1 billion people still earn their living off the land (the vast majority being in developing countries).
Festivals and ‘webstivals’. The changing face of climate service networking

Climate services have come a long way since simply making climate observations available on a website. In a changing climate, climate services together with weather services, environmental impact assessments, and risk management, are increasingly used by many sectors, including energy, agriculture, health and tourism.
