BIOservicES workshop: Soil sampling, indicators and sample treatment

If you are a soil expert, a researcher working on soil health around Europe, or simply working on a soil health-related project, join us to define soil sampling methodologies and indicators on soil health! We are excited to invite you to the upcoming European BIOservicES workshop on February 13th, 2024. This workshop holds significance as we converge to establish the links between soil organisms and ecosystem services within the project.


This workshop marks a pivotal moment for us to collectively address and align our methodologies. During this session, we will focus on discussions centered around refining indicators, methodological approaches, and the logistics of sample collection and transportation. Your insights and expertise are essential in shaping these crucial aspects of BIOservicES project.
