About Biochar COST Action and European Biochar Research Network
EU COST Action TD1107 is a networking project granted by COST in the domain of Food and Agriculture. COST is an intergovernmental framework for European Cooperation in Science and Technology, allowing the coordination of nationally-funded research on a European level. This Biochar COST Action runs from March 2012 to March 2016.
Current Biochar research in Europe is mushrooming but often fragmented and unnecessarily repeated. Thus, the aim of the Action is to expand and interconnect knowledge in Biochar systems, to assess environmental impacts of Biochar use and thus sharpen a promising global change mitigation tool up to the stage where economically feasible application will begin. Building a well interacting European Biochar Research Network (eBRN) of academic and industrial partners who perform basic research is the essential activity therefore. In terms of contents the work of eBRN and Biochar COST Action is organized in four thematic Working Groups.
