The sustainable use of the natural resources soil, water and atmosphere.
Climate change and land use change have significant impacts on terrestrial ecosystems that society will need to manage in the coming decades. However, the development of appropriate management and adaptation strategies to global change is currently severely hampered by our limited ability to predict states and fluxes of matter in terrestrial systems at the temporally and spatially relevant scales. Contributing to the improvement of system understanding and predictive capacity is the central research concern of the Agrosphere Institute.
Dr. Guillaume Lobet (he/him) from the Jülich Institute of Agrosphere #IBG3 has been awarded a Consolidator Grant by the European Research Council (ERC). Over the next five years, the ERC will fund Lobet's research on the soil-root-plant system against the background of increasing drought with up to € 2 million.
Our warmest congratulations on this great success. Well deserved, Guillaume!!

Geoverbund ABC/J is the geoscientific network in the research region of Aachen–Bonn–Cologne/Jülich. The geoscientific institutes of RWTH Aachen University, the University of Bonn, the University of Cologne, and Forschungszentrum Jülich collaborate under its umbrella.
TERENO is a network of four terrestrial observatories in Germany for long-term environmental observation (> 15 years).
The centre of excellence High-Performance Scientific Computing in Terrestrial Systems was founded in 2011. In close cooperation with the Jülich Supercomputing Centre, it provides geoscientists in the ABC/J region with support for their research activities with supercomputers.
The International Soil Modeling Consortium is a community effort to integrate and advance soil systems modeling.
ICOS RI is an organisation of eleven member countries and over 100 greenhouse gases measuring stations aimed at quantifying and understanding the greenhouse gas balance of Europe and neighbouring regions.
Bioeconomy Science Center (BioSC) is the competence cluster in integrated bioeconomy research of the Universities of Aachen, Bonn, Düsseldorf and the Forschungszentrum (56 core groups from many disciplines).
As part of the Helmholtz Climate Initiative, scientists will advance their climate research in completely new research projects and network with new contacts to perform comprehensive research on climate change.
MOSES comprises highly flexible observation modules operated by the Helmholtz Centres in the research field "Earth and Environment" to investigate the interactions of short-term events and long-term trends across Earth compartments.
BonaRes (“Soil as a sustainable resource for the bioeconomy”) is a funding initiative of the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) with focus on the sustainable use of soils as a limited resource. BONARESBONARES
