Dear Reader,

We are very pleased to inform you that we have just released the 3rd issue of the MIND STEP Project Newsletter.

You may access and browse or download the PDF version here.

Here are some highlights what you can find in this issue:

What MIND STEP is all about?

MIND STEP is an EC funded 4-year Horizon 2020 research and innovation action aiming to improve exploitation of available agricultural and biophysical data and will include the individual decision making (IDM) unit in policy models.

A lot of work has been done in the project since our 2nd newsletter in December 2020. Dealing with various tasks during the Covid-19 pandemic was a challenge, but the MIND STEP project team managed to generate valuable results.

From this issue of our newsletter you can get to know:

What are the latest developments in our project?

  • We had the 2nd stakeholder workshop in April 2021 to find out how the MIND STEP indicator framework should look like. Several working meetings also took place. Learn more about how our partners work to keep focus on project implementation.

What are the latest deliverables in MIND STEP?

  • New deliverables, mainly from WP2 Data requirements for indicators on European policies related to agriculture and data management, but also a report on specification of model requirements from WP3, and a WP7 deliverable on the initial prototype of the MIND STEP data and download services were submitted to the EC.

Where and how are we networking?
