in Agricultural SOIL Systems.


Plastics have become a key component of modern agriculture, but knowledge on its fate and impact on soil functions is limited. SOPLAS addresses these critical knowledge gaps.


The SOPLAS training network is composed by 20 collaborating institutions from science and industry committed to better understand agro-ecosystems.

Who we are

SOPLAS is a multi-disciplinary and intersectoral innovative training network of the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme (Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions).


SOPLAS covers 14 interlinked PhD projects to train the future generation of experts in the plastic, soil and agriculture nexus.
