Project

System for Environmental and Agricultural Modelling
Linking European Science and Society

Overview

The 4-year research project (2005-2009) SEAMLESS, financed by the EU under the 6th Framework program, develops a computerized framework (SEAMLESS-IF) to assess and compare, ex-ante, alternative agricultural and environmental policy options.. Read more on the project's web page ..

The consortium of 29 partners is co-ordinated by WUR, Wageningen, The Netherlands.

Contribution of ILR to the project

ILR's main tasks are

    Work package leader for WP3, Quantiative tools and models

    Development of a module for farm structural changes

    Integration of the CAPRI modelling system in the SEAMLESS-IF decision support system
