We introduce the INSPIRATION bottom-up approach for the development of a strategic research agenda for spatial planning, land use and soil-sediment-water-system management in Europe. Research and innovation needs were identified by more than 500 European funders, endusers, scientists, policy makers, public administrators and consultants. We report...
Adaptation to climate change has become an important element of urban policy development in the member states of the European Union. These issues are dealt with in EU documents, as well as in national and local strategies and city adaptation plans. In Poland, the challenge of preparing for climate change has been presented in the Strategic Adaptati...

The SALUTE4CE project aims to protect and develop natural resources by increasing the capacities of the public sector, and related entities, to improve the integrated environmental management of green and blue infrastructure in Functional Urban Areas (FUAs). The project will encourage the planting of native and climate-resistant vegetation in areas lacking large sites for this function and using the small plots/spots which are not attractive for other purposes. The SALUTE4CE project will implement the concept of urban environmental acupuncture. This consists of a surgical and selective intervention into the urban environment, instead of large scale projects that involve thousands of hectares and high costs. To this end, the inhabitants will be involved to participate in activities aiming at taking care of the small areas in their neighbourhood, and promoting the planting of native and climate-resistant vegetation on these areas to restore the biodiversity and natural heritage.
The objective of the LUMAT project is to implement sustainable land use and integrated environmental management pilot projects in 7 Central European Functional Urban Areas (FUAs). The LUMAT partnership of cities and regions, environmental agencies and research institutions will develop integrated "Functional Areas Integrated Environmental Management Strategies” (FAIEMS) with shared transnational territorial and scientific competence.
Integrated Spatial Planning , Land use and Soil Management Research Action( INSPIRATION ) is Horizont 2020. The main aim of INSPIRATION is to develop a Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) to inform environmentally friendly, socially acceptable and economically affordable soil and land use management that meets societal needs and challenges.
